Fresh off Wednesday night’s 2-0 win away to Broxburn Athletic, Broughty travel for the last time this season on Saturday when they make the long trip to face Musselburgh Athletic at the Olivebank Stadium.
Following on from a heavy 6-1 defeat at home at the hands of Broxburn Athletic, followed by a 2-0 local derby loss away to Lochee United, the Fed ran out comfortable winners on Wednesday night at Broxburn Athletic and will be looking to get a result in their last away game of the season before two home games against Bonnyrigg Rose and Lochee United.
Hosts Musselburgh currently sit fourth-bottom of the Super League, eleven points behind the Fed with the same amount of games played. A win for the home side would make them safe from the two automatic relegation places and level on points with Camelon, but with a far better goal difference, so Super League football would be returning to the Olivebank Stadium next season.
The side’s previously met away back at the end of August 2016 at Whitton Park with the Fed running out 2-0 winners with both goals from midfielder Ross McCord, one a 20yrd effort and the other a second half penalty, pictured above. Last season saw Broughty do the double over their hosts, winning 5-3 at Whitton Park and 2-0 at the Olivebank Stadium, but with Super League safety in mind for Musselburgh, it’s sure to be a hard game for the Fed this time around.
Musselburgh’s are unbeaten in their previous three league fixtures, with wins over Bonnyrigg Rose 2-1, Fauldhouse United 4-0 and a 2-2 draw with Linlithgow Rose.
Broughty will still be missing captain Jamie Winter for the trip as he serves his last suspension of a two-game suspension handed out. A late fitness test will determine if Danny Cavanagh makes the trip, he missed the midweek win with a swollen ankle.
All fans are reminded this game is a 2-30pm kick off at the Olivebank Stadium, home of Musselburgh Athletic.
