The Malta Football Association on Sunday announced that the Premier League match between Ħamrun Spartans and Żebbuġ Rangers will be resumed on Sunday, November 27, at the Centenary Stadium, starting at 11am.
The clash between the Spartans, the Premier League leaders, and newly-promoted Żebbuġ was abandoned last Saturday at half-time after heavy rain made conditions at the Centenary Stadium impossible for play to resume.
In fact, the match officials, after a lengthy delay following the half-time interval decided that there were not the conditions for play to resume due to a waterlogged pitch and decided to call off the game.
At the time of the match suspension, Żebbuġ Rangers were leading the match 2-1.
Shaun Bugeja put the Rangers ahead after three minutes of play and they doubled their lead on 11 minutes following an own goal by goalkeeper Henry Bonello.
Ħamrun Spartans managed to pull a goal back three minutes later through Jonny.
Now, the match is expected to continue on November 27, with play resuming with the start of the second half.
Meanwhile, the Challenge League clash between Melita and Mqabba, which was also called off last weekend will also be played on November 27, with kick-off time set at 1pm.
