Broughty Athletic welcome former three-times Super League champions Linlithgow Rose to Whitton Park this Saturday in a league encounter. The Fed will be looking to capitalize on their recent great run of form recently which consists of four wins, one draw and one loss in their last six league matches.
Last Saturday the Fed came home from Camelon with the points following a terrific 3-2 win at Camelon whereas visitors also ran out winners, 2-1 at home to Jeanfield Swifts so both sides will know a tough game is in store come Saturday afternoon.
Vistors Linlithgow Rose currently sit in third position in the Super League, six points behind leaders Bonnyrigg Rose with the same amount of games to play, nine, so they are still well in with a shout for the league title. Their recent run of form has seen them lose to both Sauchie and Bonnyrigg Rose before the win over Swifts on Saturday so they will be looking to keep the title ambitions on track.
Both sides met back in mid-September at Prestonfield Park where Rose ran out comfortable 4-1 winners with Fed striker Dayle Robertson, currently on loan at Tayport, scoring Broughty’s consolation goal after trailing 4-0. Last season the sides fought out a 2-2 draw at Whitton Park and the Fed secured a 2-1 win at Prestonfield Park in the opening game of the season. Scorers for the Fed that day were both Jamies, McCunnie and Winter.
Broughty go into the game with an all but full squad to choose from with only Danny Cavanagh, pictured right, a doubt following his bout of sickness which forced him to miss last Saturday’s trip to Camelon. Fed manager Jamie McCunnie will wait to see how Danny is in training.
All fans are reminded this game is a 2-30pm kick off at Whitton Park. Admission prices are £6 for Adults and £3 for OAPs/Kids.
