EoS: Spartans ready for leaders Leith

Have your say

Spartans EOS boss Colin Tomassi knows his side will face their toughest opponents yet when league leaders Leith Athletic visit Ainslie Park in The East of Scotland League tomorrow (3.00pm kick-off).

Leith have made a tremendous start to their East of Scotland campaign with just one defeat from 13 competitive matches so far and they will be looking to extend their unbeaten league run to nine tomorrow.

Spartans EOS meanwhile have exceeded expectations with five wins from their first seven league games with Blair Atkinson and player coach Chris Anderson both netting 17 goals between them.

Tomassi’s side put back-to-back defeats by Ormiston and Burntisland Shipyard behind them last weekend with a 3-1 win over Eyemouth United but they know they face a formidable task altogether tomorrow.

“It’s going to be a really hard game for us, Leith have been blowing teams away recently so it’s up to us to try and play and combat that and play to our strengths because we’ll need to have everyone at the top of their game,” said Tomassi.

Civil Service Strollers host Stirling University at Christie Gillies Park (2.30pm kick-off), with Alex Cunningham missing Jason Young who was red-carded against Craigroyston last weekend.

Matthew Cunningham is set to return to the side after serving his suspension but Barry Milvern is still injured for Strollers along with long term injury victim Blair McWhirter.
