Broughty Athletic welcome third bottom side St Andrews United to Whitton Park on Wednesday night in a vital league clash, one the Fed will be looking to win and secure more valuable points for Super League safety.
The side’s previously met away back on the 19th August 2015, with Broughty romping to a 5-0 away win, with goals from Jake Mair, Grant Lawson, former striker Bryan Duell and a double from Stewart McConnachie, pictured left.
Our visitors have had a tough season just like the Fed, and sit only two places below Broughty with four points less, but having played two games more, so a win for Broughty is crucial to pull away and strive towards Super League safety. St Andrew’s last three results have seen them defeat Boness United on penalties in the Fife & Lothian Cup following a 1-1 draw on Saturday and previously to that a 1-0 home win against Tayport and a 3-0 defeat away to Newtongrange Star. United themselves will be desperate for the points on offer in their bid for Super League survival too so a hard game is in store for players and fans alike.
Broughty manager Keith Gibson will welcome back from his two-game suspension, Ryan Suttie, pictured below, and defender Bastien Wibaut who has missed the last two games, returning from a recent study leave back home in France. Again a couple of players received knocks in the recent home defeat to Bonnyrigg on Saturday and the manager will be waiting to see if they clear before making his mind up on who starts in this crucial game against their Fife rivals.
All fans are reminded this game is a 6-45pm kick-off. Admission prices at Whitton Park are £5 for Adults and £2 for OAP/Kids.
Please be aware kick-off time may be subject to change by the ERSJFA if like last midweek the weather is to take a turn for the worse in terms of dark clouds making visibility poorer if the game kicks off later.
