Broughty Athletic face the short journey to Laing Park to face Carnoustie Panmure on Wednesday night in the Super League looking to get back to winning ways following Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat to Broxburn Athletic on Saturday. The fixtures are coming in thick and fast now as the season end nearer’s for the Super League side’s.
Hosts Carnoustie currently sit in thirteenth place, one behind the Fed, with two points less but, have three games in hand so a win for Keith Gibson’s side is nothing short of what is required come Wednesday night. Their last three fixture’s consisted of two defeats away to Broxburn Athletic and Newtongrange Star and a 1-1 draw against Boness United at Laing Park. Their fixture on Saturday at home to current league champions Kelty Hearts was called off due to a water-logged pitch.
The side’s last met at the start of the season at Whitton Park mid-August 2015 where Broughty ran out comfortable 5-1 winners with goals from Jake Mair, Jamie Winter(pic above), Paul McLellan and a Stewart McConnachie (pic right) double.
Broughty go into the game again with a few injury worries, namely goalkeeper Iain Ross, who missed the last two games due to illness and defender Jay Smart with a calf problem, but they did welcome back Frankie Lannen with a place on the bench against Broxburn. Broughty will be without defender’s Jamie Sime, who is still out on loan at Dundee Violet and Bastien Wibaut, who has returned home back to France for study exams.
All fans are reminded this game kicks-off at 6-30pm at Laing Park, home of Carnoustie Panmure.
