Full Score Marsaxlokk 1-5 Mosta

Jonathan Bajada’s opener and Obinna Obiefule poker gave Mosta a lift towards safety with a comprehensive 5-1 win over Marsaxlokk at the Hibernians Stadium.

Mosta failed to win any of the last relegation pool games prior this game as club president George Galea had described it as a “black week” for the club in a recent interview, but they responded with a win that lifted them just one point above eleventh place Tarxien with 16 points, the latter will be in action tomorrow against Hamrun Spartans.

Mosta had not scored in the relegation pool since their 2-2 draw over Hamrun Spartans on March 13.

But that unpleasant record was ended in an emphatic fashion as Obinna’s four goals now puts him on top of the premier league top scores list with 23 goals.

Mosta mentor Steve D’Amato fielded an offensive 4-4-2 formation as former Obinna Obiefule and Gilbert Martin formed the forward line. Mosta were coming from a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Marsaxlokk.

Marsaxlokk coach Anton Cremona made several changes from last week’s 3-0 defeat against Mqabba as Clive Brincat and Trevor Tempelman started in the 4-5-1 formation. Alex Cesar Pedrozo started as lone striker supported by Oladatun and Jean Pierre Farrugia.
