Glas­gow fac­ing a tough task to stick in top flight

The Scotsman - - Sfl In Focus - KEN­NEtH StEPHEN

GLAS­GOW could wave good­bye to Premier League shinty to­day if high-fly­ing Kin­gussie main­tain the form that has al­ready seen them win the Ma­caulay Cup with a 4-3 vic­tory over In­ver­aray.

Glas­gow Mid Ar­gyll en­tered the top di­vi­sion this sea­son in a flurry of ex­cite­ment, be­com­ing the only ur­ban club to play amongst the elite.

How­ever, if the Peter­son Park out­fit take noth­ing to­day from a dif­fi­cult trip to Spey­side to face Kin­gussie and Bute draw, their stay is over.

Ge­orge Hay’s men have only picked up two vic­to­ries in a sea­son which was al­ways about gain­ing valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence for their promis­ing young­sters.

Omi­nously, Kin­gussie are in no mood to take their foot off the gas, with the league still in their sights and the Ca­manachd Cup fi­nal fast ap­proach­ing.

“Glas­gow will come here look­ing for a point, at least but we just have to keep up the win­ning form,” said Kin­gussie boss Stephen Borth­wick.

“I think a few peo­ple’s minds are on the Ca­manachd Cup fi­nal but we need to get that out of our thoughts and fo­cus 100 per cent on this game.”

Kin­gussie will wel­come back Louis Munro af­ter three months on the side­lines.

In the other rel­e­ga­tion four-pointer, Bute can also push Oban to­wards the exit if they win in Rothe­say but an Oban vic­tory gives them a chance of sur­vival.
