East of Scot­land duo aim to end year in style

West Lothian Courier - - Review of the Year -

Brox­burn Ath­letic and Black­burn United are hop­ing to sign off 2018 in style with vic­to­ries on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Ath­letic would go level on points with West Loth­ian ri­vals Lin­lith­gow Rose at the top of the East of Scot­land Foot­ball League Con­fer­ence C ta­ble if they can get the bet­ter of Camelon at Al­byn Park and other re­sults go their way.

It will be a first re­turn to Ath­letic for the club’s for­mer striker Kieran An­der­son, who is the East of Scot­land’s top scorer with 31 goals to his name al­ready this term af­ter mak­ing the sum­mer switch to the Mariners. Kick-off at Al­byn Park is 2.30pm.

Black­burn United face a tough task as they make the jour­ney to Perth to take on an un­de­feated Jean­field Swifts side (1.30pm kick-off).

United have had an in­con­sis­tent start to life at se­nior level but will be aim­ing to se­cure a top-five place in the ta­ble.

They are the only two West Loth­ian clubs with com­pet­i­tive fix­tures with Lin­lith­gow Rose hav­ing a bye week, while the East Re­gion Ju­niors have shut down over the fes­tive pe­riod.

They are back in ac­tion next week­end ( Jan­uary 5) with two derby fix­tures as Pumpher­ston host Bath­gate This­tle and Stoney­burn wel­come Harthill Royal.
