Another two match ban for Manuel Bartolo

Floriana goalkeeper Manuel Bartolo is ruled out of the first two matches of the Championship Pool after being handed another two-match ban.

Bartolo, who was suspended for two matches after being sent off  in the 2-2 draw with Balzan, was reported by the match inspector for violent conduct on an opponent in the game against Mosta.

Dutch goalkeeper Patrick Jansen who made his debut in Saturday’s game against Hibernians will therefore continue to guard the posts for the Greens.
