Group F stragglers Malta recorded their first point of their European Championship qualifying campaign after holding Georgia to a draw at the Ta' Qali National Stadium.
Georgia took a 15th-minute lead through midfielder Jaba Kankava but captain Michael Mifsud drew Malta level 10 minutes later and neither side could force a winner in the remainder of the match.
Malta stay bottom of the standings with one point from eight games - nine points behind fourth-placed Georgia, whose outside chances of a top-two finish were over before tonight's match.
Georgia had lost to another struggling nation on Friday after going down 1-0 at home to Latvia but they started well tonight when Kankava fired into the roof of the Malta net from David Targamadze's inswinging corner.
However, that advantage was short-lived as the much-travelled Mifsud drew Malta level with a 25-yard effort .
That was only Malta's fourth goal in their eight qualifying games, with former Kaiserslautern, Coventry and Lillestrom striker Mifsud having netted three of them.
Both teams went in search of further goals after that but there was no way past the respective goalkeepers, Andrew Hogg of Malta and Georgia's Nukri Revishvili.
Hogg did well to keep out a Otar Martsvaladze shot just before the break and he also denied Vladimir Dvalishvili late on, while Revishvili was called into action to keep out efforts from Andre Schembri, Andrei Agius and Daniel Bogdanovic.
