Bainfield blew a chance to ease their relegation worries as they lost 76-72 at bottom side Abbeyview in Division B of the indoor bowls Premier League last weekend.
And tomorrow’s penultimate match against table-toppers Falkirk at home won’t calm the nerves. Bainfield’s first target is to avoid automatic relegation by adding to or preserving their two-point advantage over Abbeyview while escaping the play-off position requires closing the two-point advantage held by East Lothian and Aberdeen.
Rink 1: Tam Erbbs, Danny McCourt, Daniel Gormley, Craig Paterson.
Rink 2: Graeme Mcintosh, Alan Brown, Kevin Tennant, Colin Hutchison.
Rink 3: Josh Spalding, Steven Rennie, John McDermott, Gavin Smith.
Rink 4: Mark Mcintosh, Steven Pilley, Jamie Reid, James Hogg.
East Lothian have joined Bainfield in the relegation zone but can help themselves and the Capital outfit by delivering a killer blow to the survival prospect of Abbeyview when they meet in Fife.
Team captain Scott Kennedy joins Alex Marshall as a major absentee. However, there is compensation with the return of stalwart stars Mark Johnston and Andy Jeffrey.
