Déjà vu forVale andWanderers
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.
