Stewart’s Melville will kick-off an important weekend in BT National Division One when they clash with Jed-Forest under the Riverside Park lights tonight (kick off 7.45pm).
The Inverleith men have recovered from an inconsistent start to the campaign and now sit sixth in the table but cannot feature in the promotion race. However, a win for the Edinburgh outfit would virtually rule the Borderers out of the fight for a top-two finish.
Watsonians feature in the Capital’s big game tomorrow when they will be looking to restore their advantage at the top with a win at home to rivals Edinburgh Accies (kick-off 1.15pm). Sonians share pole position with Marr, with both sides having an identical points difference although the Ayrshiremen have played one game more.
Musselburgh can take a significant stride towards guaranteeing survival by beating Kelso at Stoneyhill (3pm).
In Division Two, second-bottom Lasswade welcome basement side Greenock Wanderers (2pm). The Hawthornden men have played more matches than all of the other sides in the lower half of the table, so a win is essential.
Preston Lodge’s promotion challenge appears to be over after defeat last time out. They are at home to Ardrossan Accies.
Haddington, following their defeat at Orkney, must avoid any slip ups at Irvine if they hope to remain in the Division Three promotion race, while it is Livingston’s turn to make the long haul to Orkney.
