Lowland League Preview: Kelty Hearts

This Saturday, it’s time for Swifty to prepare the squad for Lowland League new boys, Kelty Hearts. This fixture will come as a definitive challenge for a BSC squad still trying to wrap their head around how they could’ve lost their 2-0 lead last Saturday against Edusport Academy in that unfortunate draw.

Tam Courts will be bringing his squad to The Indodrill with an air of confidence as they’ve proved themselves dangerous attackers in their opening three games of their first campaign in the Lowland League.

Sitting mid-table in 11th place, Hearts have yet to play a game where they don’t put a few crackers into the net. They followed their opening day 2-2 draw with Dalbeattie Star with an absolute hammering when they travelled to Whitehill to easily hammer six past the Rosewell side.

Their first loss came a fortnight ago against an in-form Cumbernauld Colts , but even then, Colts only managed a one goal margin in that 3-2 fixture and almost allowed Kelty back into the game late on.

Kelty quickly jumped right back up, however, as last weekend they destroyed Dalkeith Thistle with another 6-0 victory in the Football Nation Qualifying Cup. Their forward-in-form, Stuart Cargill gained the match ball after an impressive hat trick and Cargill will definitely be the forward that Ryan Marshall and his back line will need to watch out for this Saturday.

Despite a few slip ups, BSC Glasgow are still considered by many to be top four contenders, so Swifty and the squad must be looking to win at all costs. Kelty will come to Alloa knowing if they leave with three points, it could mean a change in the wind for the league standings and really lay a marker down to other sides in the division.
