Three Pietà defenders handed one-match ban

Pietà Hotspurs coach Ray 'Zazu' Farrugia will have to reshuffle his entire defence for his team's next Premier League clash against champions Hibernians on November 24.

The Hotspurs, defeated 5-0 by Sliema Wanderers on Sunday, had three important players on the suspensions' list... defensive trio Mauro Dilello, Mirko Jurilj and Digger Okonkwo.

The MFA Disciplinary Commissioner imposed a one-match ban on the three players for different reasons... Okonkwo after a sending off against Sliema, Dilello for collecting his fourth yellow card and Jurilj for passing remarks towards referee Anton Zammit after the game. Jurilj had not even been cautioned during the match.

Wayne Cutajar, who plays for the U-19 side of St Patrick, was hit by a three-month suspension. He will only be eligible to play after February 5, 2003.
