Gala day gives Spartans a quick chance to bounce back

Have your say

Spartans will be hoping for a positive response to their mid-week derby defeat by Edinburgh City when they make the trip to Gala Fairydean Rovers tomorrow, although the Borders side will face the champions in confident mood.

Rovers were also in derby action, running out 4-1 winners away to rivals Vale of Leithen.

Spartans striker Keith Mc-Leod is in line to make his 200th appearance for the club and will hope to mark the occasion by adding to his goal tally.

Whitehill Welfare are in action at Ferguson Park where they welcome BSC Glasgow. Both the Rosewell side and their visitors have collected four points from their opening two Lowland League games. Manager Mickey Lawson will be looking to Steven Manson and Aaron Somerville to continue their rich vein of form, having shared three goals between them in their midweek win.

Edinburgh University were on the receiving end of Whitehill’s attacking force and will be looking to make amends in their third successive away fixture already this season. Dorian Ogunro’s team travel to face Gretna 2008 at Raydale Park, with both sides recording a draw and a defeat in their opening two games.

Preston Athletic will attempt to add to their solitary league point when they make the journey south to face Threave Rovers. David Bingham’s Panners were denied their first league win at Selkirk on Wednesday, and will face a Rovers team who have yet to score a Lowland League goal so far this season.
