Mosta came into this match looking to bounce back from a series of negative results. Mark Miller’s side suffered four consecutive defeats in their previous four Premier League matches.

On the other end, Gudja registered a number of positive results in their recent matches that enabled them to climb momentarily outside of the danger zone. In fact, their last defeat prior to this match dates back to the 26th of October.

Mosta scored the winning goal of the match on the 27th minute. Dexter Xuereb’s cross from the right stunned Jonathan Debono and ended up inside the net.

Gudja tried to react, but could not find a way past Mosta’s defence as they managed to hold on to their narrow lead.

Following this result, Mosta breathed a sigh of relief as they climbed ninth in the table ahead of Gudja and Sliema Wanderers.
