Broughty Athletic travel into Fife on Saturday to face Hill of Beath Hawthorn in a Super League clash at Keirs Park.
The Fed will be looking to kick on from their last league fixture, a comfortable 4-1 home win over Bo’ness United two Saturdays ago whereas HOB fought out a great 1-1 draw away to fourth-place Penicuik Athletic.
Hosts HOB currently sit in eighth place, directly below the Fed who occupy seventh spot and trail by four points but do have three games in hand over the Fed so coming home with the points is crucial for Jamie McCunnie’s side come Saturday. With drawn games against Penicuik Athletic 1-1, Newtongrange Star 2-2 and a home 3-2 defeat to Lochee United in their last three league games, HOB will be looking to turn their fortune around against the Fed this weekend.
The sides have yet to meet each other this season but last season in April 2017, the Fed came home with the three points in a 3-1 win at Keirs Park with goals from Brian Clark, Paul McClellan, pictured left, and former Fed player Danny Cavanagh. The fixture at Whitton Park back in September 2016 was also a win for the Fed, this time a single headed goal was enough to seal the points from former defender Jay Smart.
Broughty have no injury worries to deal with going into the game and interim manager Jamie McCunnie with have a difficult choice in who travels in the squad with recent new signings Jordan Garden and Gregor Anderson both likely to feature at some point in the game.
All fans are reminded this game is a 2-30pm kick off at Keirs Park, home of Hill of Beath Hawthorn.
