Craigroyston, who host Easthouses Lily at St Mark’s Park tonight (kick-off 6.15pm) have won their last six Central Taxis First Division games to propel them into genuine promotion contention although they still have half of their league fixtures remaining. Paul Lynch, who scored against Kelso United in their 1-0 victory at the weekend, is in a rich vein of goalscoring form and is keen to add to his tally tonight.
He said: “I’m feeling fit at the moment and I’m getting good service from my team-mates.”
Manager Ross McNeil has signed Craig Anderson from Stenhousemuir and Stewart O’Neill from Civil Service Strollers.
Easthouses Lily have striker Graeme Young available after his one-match suspension. Elsewhere, in the First Division, Leith Athletic host Ormiston at Spartans’ Ainslie Park.
In the Premier Division, Lothian Thistle, who have lost their last three league games, are optimistic that they can reverse their fortunes at Saughton Enclosure (kick-off 7.45pm) when they face Gretna 2008, who are one point ahead of the Edinburgh club. Lothian are at full strength while Gretna 2008 welcome back Joe Slattery after suspension.
There is a clash of the Universities at Gannochy Sports Centre where Stirling University entertain Heriot-Watt.
Stirling – in second place – hope to put pressure on leaders Spartans, while Heriot-Watt are still not out of the relegation area.
In the Borders, Berwick Rangers Reserves will take on Kelso United.
