Hibs, Hamrun hope to bounce back from defeats

After losing in their last outings, Hibernians and Hamrun Spartans will be hoping to return to winning ways as they cross swords at the Centenary Stadium on Monday, kick-off at 19:00.

For the Spartans, the 0-2 defeat to Mosta was their first loss this season after winning three of the first five matches. They are currently joint-fourth and a win on Monday would put them in second place.

Hibernians, on the other hand, lost two out of the six matches played so far and share the seventh place with Mosta and Balzan. In their last outing, they lost 0-1 to Birkirkara.

Joseph Mbong is ruled out for the Paolites as he serves a one-match ban.
