Leaders Valletta hope to move thirteen points clear on Friday as they take on Hamrun Spartans in this weekend’s big match from the Championship Pool.
Although the Spartans are yet to register a win in the Championship Pool, together with Marsaxlokk, they were the only team to steal two points off the Citizens this season. However they suffered three defeats in their last three outings.
Valletta, on the other hand, are still unbeaten after twenty-three matches and beat Birkirkara, Floriana and Tarxien Rainbows in their last three outings.
The Citizens welcome back Denni Rocha Dos Santos who missed the last match as he was serving a one-match ban. The Spartans, on the other hand, will be lacking on-loan midfielder Dyson Falzon who scored the two goals in the two 1-1 draws against his former club.
The first round clash had ended in a 2-0 win for the Citizens.
