Broughty Athletic face a tough Super League match this Saturday when they travel to Fife to face current Super League champions Kelty Hearts.

The Fed have been inconsistent this season so far, not having a decent run of winning results. Following their great 3-2 defeat of Linlithgow Rose two weeks ago at Whitton Park, Broughty struggled in the GA Engineering Cup last Saturday to a 0-0 draw against lower league side Brechin Vics despite winning the penalty shootout.

Not making the trip to New Central Park in Kelty will be defender Jamie Sime as he still recovers from injury. Barry Myles is nearing full fitness, but Saturday may be just too early a start for him. A late fitness check also on Jamie McCunnie will determine if he makes the trip due to having the flu.

Hosts Kelty Hearts currently sit third top of the league table, three points behind leaders Penicuik Athletic but having two games in hand and will be in with another shout as to where the league trophy ends up this season. This Saturday will see their first game on their new pitch, part of Fife Councils £7m investment to the area and the unveiling of last season’s Super League champions flag.

All fans are reminded this game is a 2-30pm kick-off at New Central Park, Kelty.
