Gozo will be up against Overseas in back-to-back ECS T10 Malta matches at the Marsa Sports Complex on Wednesday.
Gozo, who are reeling at the bottom of the Group B points table, have recorded just one win from their six games, with the solitary victory coming against Swieqi United. Moreover, each of their five defeats have been by massive margins. So with four group stage games to go, Gozo need to go on a winning run to remain in contention to qualify for the ECS T10 Malta knockouts.
Overseas, on the other hand, have played just four games in the tournament so far, winning and losing two apiece. They started their ECS T10 Malta campaign brilliantly by beating Mater Dei comprehensively twice. However, the Super Kings got the better of Overseas in their next two games. They will be looking to find some consistency as they aim to move up the points table.

The track at the Marsa Sports Complex has been an excellent one to bat on, with teams consistently racking up big totals on this ground. The pitch doesn’t really offer much to the bowlers and another solid batting surface is likely to be in store for Wednesday’s ECS T10 Malta double-header. A score of around 105-110 could well be par at the venue.
