Pembroke are currently bottom of the BOV Premier League with just one win in their last five games.

Yesterday’s victory saw two own goals from Mosta before Manolito Micallef’s first half strike secured Pembroke a comfortable lead.

Athleta will face a tough opponent as they come up against Floriana in their next league encounter. The Green’s are currently fifth in the league with 18 points to their name.

This will be goalkeeper, Matthew Calleja Cremona’s return to the club he left during the summer transfer window in order to play for the team he grew up at.

The Maltese shot stopper impressed for Floriana throughout pre-season before making the switch following the arrival of experienced goalkeeper, Justin Haber from Hibernians.

Matthew Calleja Cremona left Floriana for Pembroke.

Cremona spoke exclusively to ElWriteBack about his side’s victory saying: “It’s a breath of fresh air as we’ve been waiting a while to get this first clean sheet.

“Our aim is to maintain our Premier League status.”

When asked about how he is finding his return to Pembroke, the former Maltese Under 21 said: “It is very challenging but I am taking this with a positive attitude to improve my game.

“On a long term basis plan, the club has a dream to create a strong setup and start challenging with the top clubs in the country.”

The talented goalkeeper finished by speaking about his side’s next game against Floriana: “Playing your former club is always a special game and I am looking forward to it.

“I think it’s going to be a difficult game but I am facing it with a positive attitude just like any other game.”
