Last gasp winner for Melita
Melita brought an end to their series of negative performances by beating Rabat Ajax 1-0, thus obtaining a very crucial victory considering they occupy the last spot on the grid.
It was a very dramatic victory for Melita, who managed to find the back of the net thanks to substitute Toriano Singleton just seconds before stoppage time.
On 27 minutes, Rabat could have forged ahead, when Adam Smeir was fouled in the area Kurt Pace, and the referee awarded a penalty. Yet from the spot, Smeir’s effort was brilliantly saved by Nicholas Grima.
In the end it was Toriano Singleton who managed to break the deadlock and earn three important points for Melita, who beat Sean Mintoff with a low effort.
