Broughty Athletic will be looking to make it three wins on the trot as they welcome Hill of Beath Hawthorn to Whitton Park in the Super League.
With recent league wins over Musselburgh Athletic and Dundonald Bluebell, the Fed sit proudly in third top position in the league following their great start to the season and another three points this Saturday would cement their position at the top end of the table.
Visitors HOB currently sit in ninth position, six points behind the Fed, and are currently on a two-game losing streak after heavy defeats against Penicuik Athletic, 4-0 and a 5-2 home defeat to league leaders Kelty Hearts Saturday past. HOB have won two of their three away games so far this season, 2-1 at Bo’ness United and 3-1 at local rivals Lochee United.
Previous scores between the sides saw HOB do the double over the Fed, winning 2-1 at Whitton Park in November 2015 and 5-0 against a Fed side missing several first team players and starting with six players between the age of 17/18yr olds, towards the season end in late May. So a result for the home side is well over due come Saturday.
Broughty welcomed back Ryan Suttie and Barry Myles last Saturday in the 2-1 win away to Dundonald Bluebell and both will be in the squad for Saturday. Also back will be on-loan striker Kerr Hay (pic right) who missed last Saturdays win due to serving a one-match suspension for his parent side Forfar Athletic FC. Also back from holiday is striker James Collier. Still out missing though through injury are Grant Lawson, Jake Mair and Frankie Lannen.
All fans are reminded this game is a 2-30pm kick off at Whitton Park, home of Broughty Athletic JFC. Admission prices are £6 for Adults and £3 for OAP/Kids. The Pie Shop will also be in operation before and during the match for all those wanting to grab a bite to eat or drink.
