Hibernians vs Floriana ends all square

Hibernians regained a five-point lead on top of the BOV Premier League table after a goalless draw with Floriana at the National Stadium on Sunday.

If there was a team who deserved the three points, this was definitely Floriana, who were clearly a better side during the first half although Hibernians improved after the break.

During the first half, the Greens almost took the lead on the 20th minute with a fine effort by Jan Busuttil which beat goalkeeper Ibrahim Kone but the ball hit the foot of the upright before being cleared into safety. Two minutes later, the Hibs custodian performed a powerful drive by Ryan Camenzuli.

Early in the second half, Hibs missed two good chances through Jurgen Degabriele and Leandro Almeida but seven minutes from time, Kristian Keqi seemed to have notched the winner for Floriana but the goal was disallowed for a dubious offside.
