Fans to savour triple derby day ac­tion

West Lothian Courier - - Sports -

There are three West Loth­ian der­bies sched­uled to go ahead on Satur­day – weather per­mit­ting – as West Calder United are set to host Stoney­burn in a Pre­mier League South clash.

The Cau­ther will need to pick up the three points if they are to keep in touch with the top two, while sec­ond placed Bath­gate This­tle host a Liv­ingston United side sit­ting two places and one point fur­ther back.

Harthill Royal get their League Cup cam­paign up and run­ning when Whit­burn make the short trip to Gibb­shill Park, with both sides need­ing to grab the win to boost their hopes of reach­ing the next round. Fauld­house United can en­sure their progress with an away win against Glen­rothes, while Pumpher­ston will take com­plete con­trol of Sec­tion J if they can re­turn home from Fife with the three points as they travel to face Lochgelly Al­bert.

Over in the East of Scot­land League, Lin­lith­gow Rose aim to keep hold of top spot in Con­fer­ence C as they host Ed­in­burgh United, while Brox­burn Ath­letic travel to Jean­field Swifts in a po­ten­tial thriller that sees sec­ond host third.

Black­burn United will be heavy favourites as they face an away day at Or­mis­ton as they hope to gather some con­sis­tency in their bid for a top five spot in the ta­ble.
