Tayport gaffer has a selection headache
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.
