Late greens goal pushes Hibs to second place

Saturday, November 5, 2011, 17:47

A 94th minute goal by Floriana’s  Swedish midfielder Andre Grabowski handed Floriana a vital point against Hibernians in today’s first match at the Victor Tedesco Stadium and also end the run of two consecutive defeats.

Hibernians opened the score on the stroke of half time by Brazilian striker Edison Dos Santos. The former Vittoriosa Stars striker had a golden opportunity three minutes before but his penalty was saved by debutant goalkeeper Jurgen Borg who replaced suspended goalkeeper Manuel Bartolo as he was sent off in last week’s 3-0 defeat by his former side Birkirkara.

The Paolities now have twenty four points from ten games as they remained in second place after missing their opportunity to leapfrog Valletta. While Floriana moved up to third with seventeen points from ten games, although rivals Birkirkara and Qormi will be in action tomorrow against Tarxien Rainbows and Sliema Wanderers respectively.
