Broughty Athletic face their last Super League game of the 2015/16 season when they welcome Fauldhouse United on Wednesday night to Whitton Park.
Fresh off their 5-3 thumping of Musselburgh Athletic on Saturday, Fed manager Keith Gibson will be looking for his side to finish off the season with another win which could put a dent in Fauldhouse’s attempts to avoid automatic relegation down to the Premier League. Broughty are guaranteed to finish in at least in ninth place in the sixteen team league but Penicuik have a game in hand on the Fed and trail only by one point.
Visitors Fauldhouse currently sit third bottom of the league, two points above second-bottom placed St Andrews United and three points ahead of already relegated Tayport. They recently left Whitton Park with a 2-0 win in the quarter-finals of the East of Scotland Cup ten days ago. Since then they defeated local side Carnoustie Panmure 4-1 on Saturday.
The Fed shared a point in the previous league meeting between the sides away back in late August 2015 in Broughty’s fifth Super League game of the new season. A 4-4 draw was the final result between the sides at Park View in a pulsating game which had Broughty 2-0 down at one point then 4-3 ahead with minutes remaining. Scorer’s for the Fed that day were Jake Mair and a hat-trick from Jamie Winter.
Broughty have a couple of injury worries going into Wednesday’s game, with Jamie McCunnie (pictured above left) set to miss out having missed the win over Musselburgh on Saturday. Also injured is midfielder Jamie Winter, but he is serving a suspension following his ordering off against Fauldhouse in the cup game. Jake Mair is still out injured.All fans are reminded this game is a 7-30pm kick off at Whitton Park. Admission prices are £5 for Adults and £2 for OAP/Kids.
