Our boys fell to a second consecutive loss after a narrow defeat to the reigning champions. The game was very well balanced in the first half with chances for both sides.

On the 42nd minute, Xewkija won a free kick in a dangerous position. The ball was delivered by Daniel Bogdanovic and Thiago was able to get away from his marker to head home.

As we had done the previous week, we responded well and were level on the stroke of half time. A ball whipped in from the right by Predrag Djorjevic was finished by Aji from close range.

The second half continued to be tight, but Xewkija found a winner after 58 minutes. A ball in from their right was finished by Chris Camilleri.

Although we continued to apply pressure and search for an equaliser, it was not to be. Xewkija took time out of the game wherever possible and were hanging on at the end.

Our next game is a vital clash with rivals Hotspurs. Your support is essential. See you next Sunday.
