Penicuik Athletic can secure promotion to the East Region Super League for the first time in their history with a win away to Livingston United at Station Park tonight (kick-off 7pm).

Penicuik have learned that their appeal against Arniston Rangers fielding a suspended player in a recent Premier League match – which the Gorebridge side won 4-2 – was successful, and they have been awarded a 1-0 win.

As a result, Craig Meikle’s side sit second in the league on 57 points so victory tonight would put them a point clear of Fauldhouse at the top of the table and guarantee automatic promotion. Fauldhouse have just one league fixture remaining – away to Penicuik on May 17 – but the Midlothian side could lift their first league crown in nine years this weekend if they can win tonight and on Saturday when they host Jeanfield Swifts.
