Narrow win puts Hamrun nine points clear

Hamrun Spartans moved nine points clear on top the BOV Premier League table thanks to a narrow win over Gudja United at the National Stadium on Sunday.

The Spartans lie nine points ahead of Birkirkara and Gzira United with Hibernians in fourth place but the Paolites could narrow the gap to seven points should they beat Floriana on Monday. Gudja, on the other hand, share the fifth place with Mosta, who also have a game in hand.

Hamrun went close to taking the lead just before the end of the first half with a Matthew Guillaumier effort which hit the crossbar but on the 63rd minute, they finally forged ahead when off a corner from the right by Roko Prsa, a good move between Ryan Camilleri, Rodrigo Callegari, Ailton Soares and Elvis Mashike ended with the Congolese forward placing the ball at the back of the net.
