Sirens were coming from a 2-2 draw against Senglea. The newly promoted side find themselves fighting with top sides and thus were looking to return to winning ways in order to keep the pace with the first four teams.

Their opponents were on a high as they were coming from two consecutive wins against Tarxien and Gudja United. However, Sirens were definitely a trickier test.

Sirens broke the deadlock four minutes into the second half. Ige Adeshina’s cross was met by Ricardo Silva Faria who headed the ball home.

Steve D’Amato’s men doubled their advantage on the 75th minute. Silva Faria drilled a low shot that sailed past Andreas Vella.

Mosta suffered another setback two minutes later as Gabriel Aquilina was sent off after being shown his second yellow card of the match.

Following this result, Sirens climbed momentarily fourth ahead of Valletta.
