Hibernians missed the chance to all but secure the BOV Premier League title after going down 2-0 to a rejuvenated Birkirkara team who stepped up their challenge for a top-three finish.

Goals from Vito Plut (12) and Nikola Vukanac (63) completed the job for the Stripes who are now only one point behind Valletta while Hibs saw their lead over Balzan trimmed to just two points with only two games.

Birkirkara finished the game with 10 men following the second-half dismissal of Miguel Angel Alba.
