Ryan Darmanin inspired Marsaxlokk to a comfortable 4-2 victory over Hamrun Spartans. This win moves Marsaxlokk up to second place in the BOV Premier League table, eight points behind Valletta, the latter will play against Tarexien Rainbows tomorrow. Hamrun Spartans are still bottom of the championship pool with fourteen points from twenty-three games

Marsaxlokk coach Patrick Curmi opted for a 4-4-2 formation. Ryan Darmanin and Alfred Effiong formed the forward line supported by Martin Deanov and Trevor Tempelman from the flanks. Marsaxlokk lost 2-0 against Birkirkara two weeks ago
