South of Scot­land League Abbey Vale v Niths­dale Wan­der­ers

Abbey Vale face Niths­dale Wan­der­ers for the sec­ond time this sea­son on Satur­day.

They played out a nine goal thriller last week, Niths­dale tri­umph­ing 5-4.

Now the two sides meet again in the league, even though the new sea­son is less than a month old.

Co-man­ager Al­lan Clark said: “With the squad we’ve got we’ve no need to fear any­body – ex­cept maybe our­selves.

“We need to start tak­ing our chances as we’ve de­served more from the last few games.

“It’s a chance to get re­venge. We were gut­ted af­ter play­ing them the last time – es­pe­cially af­ter go­ing ahead and then los­ing to 10 men.”

Vale could be with­out Stu­art Cameron due to in­jury.

For­mer Dal­beat­tie Star man­ager John Mac­Beth fea­tured as a tri­al­ist in the week­end de­feat to Wig­town and could also be miss­ing, al­though Vale are hop­ing to sign him per­ma­nently. Mid An­nan­dale v Cree­town

Two sides that have made fan­tas­tic starts to the sea­son go head to head at Locker­bie on Satur­day.

Mid An­nan­dale won their first three games to proudly sit at the top of the South of Scot­land League be­fore last night’s matches.

And af­ter los­ing to He­ston Rovers on the open­ing day, Cree­town won their lo­cal derby with New­ton Ste­wart be­fore beat­ing Lochmaben on Satur­day.

They were due to face a tricky trip to Wig­town last night.

Boss Alas­tair Her­ries, who will miss this week­end’s game, said: “Mids are top of the league and are go­ing well. It’s nice to see one of the smaller clubs do­ing well.

“We’re happy enough with the start to the sea­son. We were dis­ap­pointed to lose the first game. We could have had a penalty then they went straight up the park and scored.

“The New­ton Ste­wart per­for­mance was as good a dis­play as I’ve seen in my time as man­ager.”

Cree­town held the first A75 car boot sale at their ground on Sun­day in a bid to raise funds for the club. They’ll be held ev­ery sec­ond Sun­day. Any­one look­ing for more in­for­ma­tion or to book a space should call Steven Do­rans on 0784696481­5.
