Naxxar Lions hold Sliema Wanderers in goalless draw

Naxxar Lions earned a precious point in the battle against relegation as they held Sliema Wanderers in a goalless draw at the Tony Bezzina Stadium on Saturday.

The Lions remain seventh but now lie on 32 points, two ahead of Gzira and Balzan, six ahead of Santa Lucia and eight ahead of Mosta. They need two points from the remaining two matches to secure their Premier League status.

Although this was the third successive draw for the Wanderers, they edge closer to securing third place as they now need three points from the remaining two matches where they would be facing Gudja United and Sirens.

Goalmouth action was rare and shots at goal were few and far in between although Sliema created the better chances especially in the second half but Naxxar goalkeeper Matthias Debono kept them at bay.
