Lochee United extend a warm welcome to Lochgelly Albert for this Saturday's East of Scotland 1st round match. The visitors were originally drawn as the home side in the competition but due to their ground having a new drainage system installed they are having to play all their fixtures away from home until the end of September. They play in the South Division where they currently sit in 5th position having taken 7 out of the 9 points they have played for. This is good form as these game have all been away from home. Like all Fife sides they will definately compete which sets this game up as a very tricky match. Manager Craig Ness has pulled together a very decent squad who will no doubt be looking to pull of a victory against the Super League side.
After an early exit from last season's competition the manager is not taking this game lightly the players will know what is expected from them especially after our excellent second half performance last week at Bonnyrigg.
The match has a 2.30 kick.
