Broughty Athletic will be looking for more points this Saturday following their recent 1-0 away win at Carnoustie Panmure when visitors and Super League leaders Bonnyrigg Rose visit Whitton Park in the league.

After last Saturday’s disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Broxburn Athletic, the Fed responded well with a hard fought 1-0 win over their near local rivals on Wednesday night and Fed manager Keith Gibson will be looking for more from his players as they look to put more points on the board in their fight to stay in the Super League for next season.DSC_0551 (2)

Visitors Bonnyrigg currently sit in top spot in the East Region Super League, one point ahead of second-placed Boness United and with three games in hand so all is looking good for Robbie Horn’s side as they go looking for the league title. Both sides met away back late January at New Dundas Park, where Broughty suffered a 3-0 loss despite going in at halftime 0-0 (pics above and below).

Bonnyrigg’s recent run of form, despite not playing since the 2nd April has seen them win two of their last three games, against Sauchie and Tayport, but suffering a 2-1 loss to Boness United mid-March, so a hard-fought encounter again is expected for the Fed at Whitton Park.

All fans are reminded this game is a 2-30pm kick-off at Whitton Park, home of Broughty Athletic. Admission prices are £5 for Adults and £2 for OAP/Kids.
