Broughty Athletic will be looking to get back to winning ways following Saturday’s 2-0 home loss to Fauldhouse United in the EOS Cup when they travel to face Hill of Beath at Keirs Park in Fife tonight.
Hosts HOB currently sit in ninth place, directly above the Fed, having played two games more and one more point on the board so a win for Broughty would mean a swap in places. HOB’s recent fixtures included two defeats to Bonnyrigg Rose and Tayport, a 2-1 away win at Carnoustie Panmure last Wednesday night but suffering a 2-0 home defeat to St Andrews United on Friday night so a difficult game is in store for both sides.
Broughty have a few players unable to make the trip due to work and holiday commitments as well as Grant Lawson and Jake Mair on the injured list so a chance for some of the youngsters, like Derryn Kesson (pictured), to showcase their potential to the manager is there.
The sides last met back in early November 2015 with the visitors leaving Whitton Park with all three points following a 2-1 win. Broughty Athletic in-form striker Kevin Buchan had put the Fed in front in the second half but HOB fought back, scoring the winner in the dying minutes of the game.
Should the Fed win their remaining four league games, a tough but doable task, then they would finish as high as fifth position in their first year in the Super League.
All fans are reminded this game is a 7-15pm kick off at Keirs Park on Wednesday night.
