Broughty Athletic face their last away game of the season when they travel to face Camelon at Carmuirs Park in the Super League.
Following on from Monday night’s heavy 5-0 defeat away to Hill of Beath, Fed boss Keith Gibson will be fielding a stronger side than the one he started with against Beath when five 17yr olds started the game.
Hosts Camelon currently sit in thirteenth position, three positions below the Fed with a nine point gap, but a win would help their cause as they try to pull away from the relegation battle involving St Andrews United, Tayport, and Fauldhouse. Their last three fixtures have seen them lose against Carnoustie 3-0, Bonnyrigg 3-0, and Kelty Hearts 3-1.
Both sides met in the opening game of the Super League season, fighting out a 0-0 draw at Whitton Park, Broughty gaining their first ever point as a Super League side. Then more recently Broughty won 3-0 at Whitton Park in the East of Scotland Cup, with striker Kevin Buchan (pictured right) netting a hat-trick in the game.
Broughty will hopefully have a couple more players to travel through following the shortage on Monday night. Five first team starters were missing through work commitments and the likes of Dougie Cameron, Paul Lunan, Iain Ross and Stewart McConnachie were on the bench. A win for Broughty would take them back up to ninth place in the league with two home games against Musselburgh Athletic and Fauldhouse United to come.
All fans are reminded this game is a 7-15pm kick-off at Carmuirs Park, home of Camelon.
