Broughty are set to be un­changed

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - KIDS - BY JUNICUS

AF­TER last week’s de­mo­li­tion of Carnoustie, Broughty man­ager Jim Fin­layson is ready to go with the same pool for to­mor­row’s home game against Su­per League lead­ers Penicuik.

While de­lighted with the over­all dis­play against the Gowfers, Fin­layson was an­noyed with the loss of what he de­scribes as two cheap goals. Any re­peat will surely be pun­ished by un­de­feated Penicuik.

Af­ter dis­ap­point­ing shows which saw them lose a league match at New­ton­grange and a de­feat from East Craigie in the GA Cup, Lochee United are hop­ing they can get back on track at home to Bo’ness.

The Loth­ian side have strug­gled this sea­son and are in the un­usual po­si­tion, for them, of be­ing third bot­tom of the league ta­ble.

The Blue­bells have a good record against the Loth­ian side, win­ning two of their last three meet­ings at Thom­son Park.

The sides drew 2-2 last sea­son but in the pre­vi­ous two years Lochee were 4-2 and 5-2 win­ners.

Man­ager Ge­orge Shields hopes to in­clude a loan player from a se­nior club but will be with­out the in­jured Mark Ste­wart, Kevin Buchan and Aaron White­head.

The Blue­bells have sent Cammy McMa­hon on loan to North End.

Hav­ing lost their last three league matches, Carnoustie will be hop­ing to stop the rot at Hill of Beath.

The Gowfers have Derek Pater­son and Alan Con­way out. Luke McGee­han and Adam Har­wood are nurs­ing knocks with their chance of be­ing fit rated no bet­ter than 50-50.

For­far West End are at home to Ken­noway Star Hearts. The teams oc­cupy the two bot­tom places in the ta­ble.

West End player-boss Daryl McKen­zie missed last week’s game with an in­jury but is back in the squad of 17.

Jean­field Swifts have an at­trac­tive home fix­ture. They take on Lin­lith­gow Rose who are third top.

Still out of Swifts’ squad with in­juries are goal­keeper Mark Mitchell, Chris An­ton and Tony Holt. Matt Cur­tis con­tin­ues to deputise for Mitchell, Richard Don­a­van re­turns to the squad which num­bers 17.

East Craigie de­fend in their GA Cup win over Lochee United.To­mor­row they face Brechin Vics in the North League.
