Tay­port gaffer has a se­lec­tion headache

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

IN the Premier League, Tay­port will be hop­ing to hit back af­ter last week’s late lapse at Black­burn which saw them lose two goals in the last three min­utes.

They face Hadding­ton at The Can­niepairt and this will be no easy task.

The Loth­ian side have made a good start to the sea­son and are cur­rently in third po­si­tion, seven points ahead of the Fifers.

Man­ager Char­lie King is fac­ing a se­lec­tion dilemma with a num­ber of play­ers fac­ing fit­ness tests, while Jamie Mackie and Gre­gor An­der­son are def­i­nitely out.

The gaffer will be pray­ing Jamie Gill, Kieran Con­way and Dale Reid, who are all nurs­ing knocks, pass fit­ness tests.

’Port are in the process of loan­ing Struan Christie to New­burgh where he will join Fraser An­der­son and Luke O’Brien.

Down­field face a stiff test at home to the un­de­feated Mus­sel­burgh.

Af­ter be­ing rel­e­gated last sea­son, the Loth­ian side are des­per­ate to make a quick re­turn to the Su­per League and cur­rently share top po­si­tion with Fauld­house.

The Spi­ders will be keen to hit back af­ter l ast week’s dis­ap­point­ment at Hadding­ton and have a full pool avail­able, in­clud­ing Jor­dan Gar­den who has been signed af­ter two suc­cess­ful tri­als.

Though they were the first team to take points off Fauld­house i n a six-goal thriller last week, St An­drews United boss Craig Mor­ri­son said it felt like a de­feat, hav­ing let slip a two-goal lead.

But deny­ing the lead­ers can only give Saints con­fi­dence as they wel­come Whit­burn. Other than Rhory Mooney, out with a bro­ken foot, Mor­ri­son has ev­ery­one avail­able.
