South Challenge Cup – Preston Athletic (H)

It’s South Challenge Cup action at the Indodrill as we welcome Preston Athletic in the Fourth Round.

After defeating Bo’ness United in the Second and then Gala Fairydean Rovers 3-1 in the Third Round, we can’t help but looking ahead at the possibility of advancing against East of Scotland League side Preston Athletic on Friday night. 

With a long midweek away trip to Berwick in store next week, Stephen Swift may be looking to rotate the squad and it will be interesting to see which XI takes the field tomorrow night. 

Our opponents currently sit 4th in the 1st Division Conference B of the East of Scotland League having started with six wins and four losses. With their last league game postponed, the rest may have benefitted them coming into this one. They suffered a 2-1 defeat to Leith Athletic in their last outing. 

With fellow Lowland League teams lying in wait in the next round, both sides will be keen to lay down a marker as we approach the midpoint of the season.
