Floriana FC 0 vs 0 St Andrews
Floriana and St Andrews end their last meeting of the season with a bore draw at the Hibernians Stadium, for Floriana this was the seventh draw of the season.
The first half was quite a boring one , with both sides sharing possession with both goalkeepers having nothing to do, on the thirty seventh minute St Andrews had a good opportunity through Ivan Paz, with the latter’s chance cleared off the line by Andre Scicluna.
In the second half the game took a different gear, Floriana attacked immediately straight after the kick off, it was on the forty seventh minute when off a Scicluna cross, Varela’s header hit the crossbar to deny the Greens the opener, luck wasn’t on the Floriana side when Samb’s chance was cleared off the line by a St Andrews defender.
Tedesco introduced Mario Fontanella in the hopes that this would add more firepower to the attack but as we said earlier luck wasn’t on the Floriana side on the day, on the seventy second minute Floriana had a chance through Steve Pisani who unleashed an inviting cross which was cleared, the ball fell onto Ryan Camenzuli who his fierce shot ended metres wide.
Six minutes from time Floriana had a clear penalty when Samb was running through the middle , substitute Udoh held the Senegalese from his neck before falling on the floor with the referee from Kosovo waving play on.
Mario Fontanella passed to Amadou Samb , with Bon Won Che anticipating the Senegalese to clear the danger for St Andrews.
