Sliema Wds 4 v Hibernians 0

Sliema Wanderers managed a 4-0 win over Hibernians thanks to two goals in each half for the Blues. Despite this win, Steve Abela’s Club will play the second phase of the League in the Relegation Pool, a negative record for the Club.

Sliema Wanderers coach Danilo Doncic opted for an offensive 3-4-3 with Etienne Barbara, Jackson Lima and Jean Pierre Mifsud Triganza forming the offensive line. Sliema Wanderers kept their slimmest chance to make it in the Championship pool alive last week after they had won against Floriana 1-0.

Hibernians coach Mark Miller opted for a 4-4-2 formation. Andrew Cohen and Steve Pisani formed the forward line. Hibernians were coming from an impressive victory against Tarxien Rainbows last Sunday.
