Fgura United are in the fourth round on the FA Tro­phy, af­ter rather sur­pris­ingly beat­ing First Divi­sion side San Gwann.

San Gwann were fresh from their first sea­sonal vic­tory against Zeb­bug in the league and were ex­pected to keep the mo­mento and move for­ward in the com­pe­ti­tion.

But Sec­ond Divi­sion side Fgura had other ideas as they won the con­test thanks to a Thomas Grech four­teen min­utes from time.

Fgura had beaten Ghaxaq 4-1 af­ter ex­tra time in the sec­ond round, but will now face an al­most im­pos­si­ble task against the in-form Hiber­ni­ans side, Pre­mier League joint lead­ers.

Fgura have noth­ing to lose at the stage, and will try to stage one of the big­gest up­sets in the his­tory of the com­pe­ti­tion against their neigh­bours.

Two matches post­poned

Mean­while yes­ter­day’s two other matches from the third round of the FA Tro­phy which were sched­uled for the Hiber­ni­ans Sta­dium have been rained off.

These matches will now be played to­mor­row Mon­day at the Cen­te­nary Sta­dium Ta’ Qali as fol­lows: 6pm Vit­to­riosa S v Tarx­ien R 8.15pm Sengla A v Mosta
