Floriana keep the pace with Hibernians

Floriana returned to winning ways as they defeated Balzan 2-1 at the Tony Bezzina Stadium on Sunday. A win which puts the Greens four points behind leaders Hibernians.

Balzan, on the other hand, suffer the third successive defeat to stay fourth from bottom.

Floriana took the lead on the 31st minute when off an Ulises Arias freekick from the left, Christian Rutjens rose high to head home.

Balzan equalised on the 67th when Milos Mijic exchanged the ball with Paul Fenech before serving Uros Ljubomirac who beat Kitanov with a low shot from inside the area.

However, one minute from time, Floriana notched the winner courtesy of Owen Spiteri who headed the ball home following a corner from the left.
