Hibernians will be aiming to extend their lead in BOV Premiership when they meet Gzira at the Hibernians Stadium this evening.

Four points clear and with four games remaining Hibs know the title chase is not yet over and only a win today will continue to pile the pressure on their rivals. They will be mindful however of how dangerous today’s opponents can be, last week they took a precious point off Valletta.

Second placed Valletta, still smarting from their draw with Gzira, face a stiff task against B’Kara at Ta’Qali today. City need to win to stay in touch with Hibs, a win for B’Kara would put them right back in the title mix.

Balzan are not out of the race and a win today against seventh place St Andrew’s will keep them in the hunt.
