Tough matches ahead in south league

There is a full programme of South of Scotland League fixtures scheduled to be played this Saturday with present leaders Edusport Academy travelling to Lockerbie to play Mid-Annandale.

The visitors will start this game as favourites to take the three points but as usual the Lockerbie side will give their all to try and take something from the contest.

Crichton are expected to keep up their good run of form to take the three points from their match against Creetown at Hospital Park while St Cuthbert Wanderers should also record a victory over Nithsdale Wanderers to maintain their challenge at the top.

Wigtown and Bladnoch entertain Lochar Thistle at Trammondford Park for an encounter the home side are expected to win although the visitors are always a tough nut to crack and this match could go close. Abbey Vale play hosts to Heston Rovers for a match that could go close with a share of the points a distinct possibility.

With both sides coming into this match on the back of defeats last time out Vale will be determined to put together a good run of form while Heston will be keen to show that their defeat at the hands of YMCA was a one off. Fleet Star were to travel to Moffat to play Upper Annandale but will now play the match at home.

Dumfries YMCA will be keen to keep up the momentum following their great result against Heston last weekend when they play hosts to Newton Stewart.

The Creesiders travel to Dumfries for the second week in succession after beating Lochar last Saturday and will be hoping that they have turned the corner following a poor run. Although this game could be another close run contest the visitors will start as favourites to take the three points.
