Boroughmuir BLAZE are not having their troubles to seek as they battle to be competitive on their return to the Scottish League.

Already without the injured international pair Laurie Costello and Kevin Anderson, Blaze go into their first home game at St Thomas of Acquins tomorrow (2.20pm) against Troon Tornadoes with a big doubt over their centre Lee ‘Chopper’ Pettett.

The seemingly indestructible Aussie suffered bad bruising to his back, neck and chest after a collision with Stirling Knights’ Scottish international forward Mark Duncan at Stirling last Saturday.

“I’ve been in agony for the last few days and tomorrow’s game is extremely doubtful,” said Pettett, who also doubles up as the assistant to Blaze coach Simon Turner.

The senior game is the culmination of a triple-header at St Thomas’s with the Blaze cadets facing the Tornadoes at 10.20am and the juniors tipping off at 12.20pm.

Across the city, Kings juniors play Tayside Musketeers at Portobello HS (11.00am) followed by the cadets at 1.00pm.
