Do­kens un­likely to make changes

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

LAST week’s re­sound­ing GA Cup win over Vi­o­let has given North End a mas­sive boost.They should con­tinue their push for pro­mo­tion with a home North League win over New­burgh.

Man­ager Ross Lu­nan is un­likely to change last week’s win­ning for­mula and will again be with­out Michael Stewart and Zak Wil­son.

There were harsh words from New­burgh’s man­age­ment team fol­low­ing last week’s sec­ond­half slump that saw them ham­mered 8-1 by Harthill in the Fife and Loth­i­ans Cup. They were only a goal down at the in­ter­val.

Clearly boss Alan For­tune will be look­ing for a re­sponse from his play­ers.

The only sav­ing grace for Vi­o­let is that last week’s de­feat from North End didn’t cost them league points.

They still top the league but will be tested by third-top Scone This­tle at Far­quhar­son Park.

Ross McLeary is out with a bro­ken toe and Mitchell Hay is un­avail­able.

This­tle team boss Derek Law­son will have Craig Mitchell back in his squad. He missed last week’s game as he was work­ing. Ruled out is Char­lie Fer­tacz who is sus­pended.

This­tle are third in the ta­ble and this will be a very keenly-con­tested en­counter.

Fresh from their suc­cess over Lochee United, East Craigie will be out to keep the mo­men­tum go­ing against Brechin Vics.

Co-man­ager Craig Brown ex­pects to have a full pool avail­able.
