Preston Athletic will travel to Stirling University tomorrow looking to build on last week’s surprise 0-2 away win over Spartans.

The Panners lifted themselves off the foot of the Lowland League with a big three points and manager Willie Kirk hopes they’ll have more to celebrate in the coming weeks as the league makes way for League Cup qualifying ties.

“After the game last week was brilliant,” said the former Hibs Ladies boss. “That’s what you want to see – you could see how much it meant to the players. We need to try and replicate that feeling week in, week out – not just because we’re feeling hard done by because we’ve got players missing, but because it’s Spartans away.”

Mickey Lawson’s Whitehill Welfare, however, will not be in action after their match with BSC Glasgow was postponed last night.

The Rosewell-based outfit had been due to travel to Lochburn Park in Glasgow to play in the Lowland League Cup, but due to severe weather that battered parts of the country yesterday, BSC were forced to call the match off due to a waterlogged pitch.

Elsewhere, Edinburgh University host East Kilbride for the second successive weekend.
