A well struck free kick from ex Malta International, Daniel Bogdanovic was the difference between the two sides in a tight game against current champions, Xewkija.

The Blues had their own chances early in the first half and with a little more accuracy could have been ahead. Xewkija were playing their first game with star striker Dene Shields back in the side, but the SKVW defenders kept close watch on him, and on Thiago, the other foreign player.

A talking point came late in the game when we were pushing to find a goal to level the score. The goalkeeper, Branko Vrndic had advanced for a free kick and Xewkija won the ball and countered. Having put the ball in the net, the goal was eventually ruled out for offside since there were not 2 defensive players behind the striker. The confusion arose due to the goalkeeper being in an attacking position.

We now face another game with Xewkija in the GFA Cup. This will be played at Sannat Stadium next week. As always, we hope to see you there.
