There are eight Premier League games this weekend with eyes focussed on the top two Hamrun and Hibernians.
Hamrun Spartans, who play Balzan on Sunday, are two clear of second placed Hibernians who take on Lija Athletic, also on Sunday.
Adding spice to chasing pack is Gzira Utd who are now only four behind Hamrun. They play Zejtun today and a win would lift them, for today at least, above Hibernians.
Birkirkara are another side quietly going about their business and are now up to fourth place. They meet Sliema today.
Just a single points separates these two who are well clear of the rest.
Valletta, so often the team to beat, are going through a rough patch and unusually for them find themselves well off the pace. City could find themselves in another tight tussle when they take on Santa Lucia on Sunday.
