Balzan, Marsaxlokk fire blanks

Balzan and Marsaxlokk shared the spoils in a goalless draw at the Tony Bezzina Stadium on Sunday.

Marsaxlokk have now gone three league matches without a win and although they are now alone in fourth place, they now lie seven points behind third-placed Sliema Wanderers and just one ahead of Birkirkara and Naxxar Lions and three ahead of HIbernians and Balzan.

Balzan, on the other hand, share the seventh place with the Paolites, four points ahead of Valletta and Gzira.

During the first half, the two goalkeepers were hardly tested but on the restart, both sides tried their best to break the deadlock with Marsaxlokk going particularly close in the dying minutes.
