Stripes aim at returning to winning ways

Birkirkara will be aiming at returning to winning ways on Friday as they take on Tarxien Rainbows at the Centenary Stadium.

A 1-3 defeat to leaders Balzan brought the Stripes’ positive run to an end. They are now fourth on 41 points, one behind Gzira United.

Tarxien, on the other hand, are eager for points in their battle against relegation. They are currently fourth from bottom on 18 points, one ahead of St. Andrews and two ahead of Naxxar. They are coming from a 4-0 win over Lija Athletic in their last outing.

In the first round, Birkirkara defeated Tarxien 3-1.
