Valletta target top spot

Valletta will be aiming for the three points on Friday as they take on Sliema Wanderers at the Centenary Stadium.

The Citizens are currently second, one point behind leaders Balzan, and a win would put them on top at least temporarily. They won their last three matches – defeating narrowly Mosta, Senglea and Naxxar.

The Wanderers, on the other hand, failed to win any of the last four matches after draws with Mosta and Naxxar and defeats to Senglea and Balzan. They are currently joint-seventh on 25 points.

In the first round, Valletta defeated Sliema 1-0.
