BOV Division 1: Rabat Ajax promoted to the Premier League

Rabat Ajax secured promotion to the Premier League after an absence of eleven years after defeating Birzebbuga St. Peter’s 2-0.

The game seemed heading for a draw with the Saints playing an excellent defensive match. However in the dying minutes, Rabat managed to break the deadlock thanks to a goal by substitute Ryan Micallef. Adam Smeir doubled the score deep into stoppage time.

Meanwhile St. Patrick defeated St. Andrews 1-0 to maintain hopes of avoiding relegation.

The Saints join Dingli Swallows on the 19-point mark, three ahead of St. George’s. Dingli and St. George’s, however, have a game in hand.

Spas Spasov scored the only goal for the Zabbar side.
