Ra­bat push Marsa in fur­ther trou­ble

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Ra­bat Ajax beat Marsa with a sec­ond half goal from sub­sti­tute Wayne Borg to in­flict the fifth de­feat this sea­son of newly pro­moted Marsa.

The Red­blues are surely find­ing the go­ing hard and their po­si­tion is be­com­ing des­per­ate at the bottom of the ta­ble evn though we are in such an early stage of the sea­son.

To be fair Marsa did not de­serve to lose yes­ter­day’s match, but they had noth­ing to show at the end of the ninety min­utes, with Ra­bat grab­bing their vic­tory on the trot.

The first half was a bal­anced af­fair with both sides go­ing close to tak­ing the lead on a cou­ple of oc­cas­sions.

On the re­sump­tion Marsa had more of the ball and even the best scor­ing chances through Omeruo, but were dealt the killer blow on 72 min­utes.

Sub­sti­tute Wayne Borg ran free in a fast break and slot­ted the ball past Marsa goal­keeper Mif­sud to break the dead­lock.

As was ex­pected Marsa threw ev­ery­thing in at­tack in the re­main­ing min­utes but failed to save the match.
