Gzira United, who are sponsored by Tipbet and the home team for the company’s Malta office, beat Hamrun Spartans last night to continue their impressive form in the Maltese Premier League.

The Maroons had to come from behind at the National Stadium in Ta' Qali after Lydon Micallef gave Hamrun the lead on 57 minutes to make a fifth defeat of the season look likely.

However, the visitors bounced back on 68 minutes through an Amadou Samb penalty.

The Senegalese scored his 18th goal of what has been a fantastic first season for Gzira, and 10 minutes from time Haruna Garba headed a winner.

The result keeps United in fourth, though they are level on points with Birkirkara, and a place in the Europa League preliminary round of qualifiers is possible.
