Balzan hope to bounce back from the heavy defeat to Valletta as they take on Floriana at the Victor Tedesco Stadium on Monday, kick-off at 19:00.
The defeat to Valletta was the second this season after they lost the opening game to Birkirkara. Against Floriana, they cannot afford dropping any points in their bid to keep the pace with Gzira United and Sliema Wanderers and join Valletta and Hibernians in third place.
However Floriana are currently seventh on nine points and seek precious points in order to climb further up the table. They are coming from back-to-back wins over Qormi and Senglea. A win would put them on level points with Balzan and Birkirkara.
