BOV Player of the Match Eslit Sala (Valletta).

Valletta halted their winless streak to claim their seventh victory of the season after a hard-fought 1-0 at the expense of Sirens.

The encounter turned out to be a nervy affair with Valletta reduced to nine players at the end, while Sirens played majority of the game with ten after a first-half sending off.
