Broxburn Athletic may be out of the title race, but they are still set to play a major role in deciding the destination of the Super League flag.

Sitting in fifth place, Stevie Pittman’s side are well clear of relegation and will finish comfortably in mid-table.

However, Pittman, whose side host league leaders Newtongrange Star tomorrow, believes there’s much more to come from his team.

He said: “We can do a lot better. I want a stronger second half to the season.

“We’re fifth in the table and that’s a good position but I feel it’s been an up-and-down year for us. We need to be more consistent in games. I know we have points in the bag, but we can play better. There is still a lot to come from the squad and I suppose I have to be happy so far but I want us to go on a good run and finish the season strongly.”

Broxburn face a tough task tomorrow against a Star side who have hit top form again after a dip that saw them knocked off their perch following a prolonged spell at the top of the league.

Elsewhere tomorrow, Bonnyrigg host Armadale with both sides suffering bad defeats last Saturday. Bonnyrigg felt hard done by after a disputed penalty saw them lose at home to Camelon. Armadale, on the other hand, were on the receiving end of a 7-0 thrashing by Bo’ness.

In the Premier League, Arniston Rangers take on Dalkeith, with both teams in good form. Bathgate have been struggling recently and will be anxious to get their promotion bid back on track at home to Broughty.
