31st August 2018 DJ Laing East Region Cup

Lochee United travel to meet Fauldhouse United tomorrow in a first round DJ Laing East Region Cup tie. The hosts have had a mixed start to their season having their first win last week at home to Forfar West End in what was their first home match of the season due to their pitch not being ready. Having opened the season away to Broughty Athletic losing 2-0 they followed this up with a 3-3 draw at Whitburn then a 3-1 defeat away to Glenrothes. A lot was expected of them but they have had problems with player availability due to holiday,injuries etc and last weeks win with players back shows that they are a far stronger side than their earlier results showed. I know we are in for a tough cup tie as they will want to build on last week's positive result. As for Lochee we have Scot McComiskie and Bryan Deasley both added to the injury list after taking knocks last week also missing is Webster Tulleth and Buchan leaving us with a small squad for the gaffer to choose from.The game kicks off at 2.30
