Lochee United are looking forward to welcoming East Kilbride Thistle to Thomson Park for our Scottish Junior Cup 4th round tie on Saturday 27th January 2018. The visitors are well up for this match despite seeing themselves as underdogs. They have won away at Girvan , Culter and Thorniewood in the previous rounds and according to the reports in the Daily Record over the last week they fancy their chances in Lochee. Nothing wrong with that attitude as these games are one off's and anything can happen. With the Gaffer still in Australia it's been left to Assistant Manager Ray Farningham, Lee Wilkie and Roddy McLeod to get the boys ready for this tie. After the long lay off it was good to start back with a very hard fought away win against Hill of Beath two weeks ago. Once again we have a long term absentees in Kevin Buchan and Bryan Deasley plus a couple of others with knocks who I won't mention. The game has a 1.45pm kick off.
