Broughty Athletic will be aiming for full points this Saturday as they welcome seventh-placed Broxburn Athletic to Whitton Park in a Super League fixture.
The Fed’s four-game winning streak came to an end Saturday past after a 2-2 draw away at Beechwood Park, home of Sauchie Juniors and Broughty manager Keith Gibson will be hoping his players can get back to winning ways and collect the three points on offer.
Visitors Broxburn currently occupy seventh spot in the East Region Super League, five places above the Fed and having played seven games more with a seven point difference so a win is vital for the Fed to bridge the gap and help push for Super League status for next season. Broxburn were the first team in inflicting a defeat in the Super League for Broughty after gaining promotion, following their opening 0-0 draw with Camelon and a 5-1 thumping of Carnoustie Panmure. Broxburn’s last three fixtures in the Super League resulted in two defeats at the hands of St Andrews United and Tayport but more recently Saturday past secured a 3-1 home win over Carnoustie Panmure.
Broughty go into the game with a few injury worries, with a couple of late fitness tests to be had. The club welcome back both goalkeepers Iain Ross (main picture above) and John Sinclair, whom both missed last Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Sauchie. Jamie Sime is still out on loan at local side Dundee Violet.
The sides last met mid-August 2015 at Albyn Park where the home side nicked the three points with two goals in the last five minutes of the game after Grant Lawson (pictured left) had given the Fed a halftime lead.
All fans are reminded this game is a 2-30pm kick-off at Whitton Park. Admission prices are £5 for Adults and £2 for OAP/Kids.
