St. Andrews continue to chase first points

St. Andrews continue to chase their first points of the season as they take on Naxxar Lions in one of the two matches in programme a the Victor Tedesco Stadium on Saturday.

Luxol suffered nine defeats, scoring five goals and conceding twenty-four. Naxxar, on the other hand, registered one win, scoring six and conceding twenty-six. A win is therefore a must for either side.

Last week, both sides suffered narrow defeats as Naxxar lost 1-2 to Sliema while St. Andrews lost 0-1 to Tarxien.

Naxxar’s Richard Cardozo is suspended. On the other hand, Equatoguinean defender Eloy Edu Nkene is set to make his debut for St. Andrews.

Meanwhile in the second game, Pembroke Athleta take on Floriana.

After beating Balzan 2-0 last week, Floriana target another three points as they take on a Pembroke Athleta side eager for points after losing the last two games to Tarxien and Mosta.

The Greens are currently joint-fifth on 16 points together with Mosta while Pembroke are fourth from bottom on ten points.

Patmore Shereni is suspended for Pembroke while Leighton Grech is ruled out injured. Conor Borg is unavailable for Floriana.
