28th September 2018 Scottish Cup Day

Lochee United are set to welcome Dalry Thistle in the 2nd round of the Macron Scottish Junior Cup tomorrow. This will be a first meeting between the clubs and once again it pairs us with an Ayrshire club. Dalry won their league last season and now compete in the Championship league in the west. Managed by Gavin Friels who played at a number of top clubs during his playing career including Auchinleck Talbot and Pollok this tie will be very tricky as he has a number of excellent players at the club. They have started the season well having won four, drew three and lost two matches in the nine league games they have played leaving them sitting in sixth position in the table. They have nothing to lose and I'm sure they will come to give it a right good go at putting one over us. As for Lochee we are still struggling with injuries but have Reece Ritchie back in the squad but Stephen McNally is missing due to holidays. The game kicks off at 2.30 get yourself along for what will be an attractive game of cup football.
