Birkirkara F.C (4th)
Last five matches: L-W-W-D-D
The shocking one-nil defeat to Sirens F.C left Birkirkara F.C disappointed after hopes of an away victory dipped into an embarrassing humiliation. In the last fourteen games played, they have lost two games, won five and drawn six.
They have played seven matches at home, from which they have gathered fourteen points. Away from home, they have also featured in seven games in which they have scavenged eleven.
A slight inconsistency here and there sees the hosts in fourth place with twenty-five points. If they continue upholding Midfield domination, they should be fine against rivals Zebbug Rangers.

Last five matches: L-L-L-W-L
