Haddington Athletic and Sauchie Juniors are the in-form teams in the East of Scotland Football League (EoSFL).

Finally, Tranent Juniors venture to Open Goal Broomhill in the Scottish Lowland Football League (SLFL) in a 3pm kick-off.

Match of the Day

Haddington Athletic v Sauchie Juniors

East of Scotland Football League Premier Division

Haddington Athletic last five games: WWWWW

UNBEATEN in nine league matches, Haddington Athletic host a Sauchie Juniors side who have avoided defeat in their last 11 league encounters.

The Millfield men sit sixth in the standings and could move above Crossgates Primrose with a positive result.

Meanwhile, their visitors are third on goal difference only and could close the gap on league leaders Linlithgow Rose with a victory.

The spoils were shared in the first meeting and it would take a brave person to pick out a clear winner again today.

Open Goal Broomhill v Tranent Juniors

Scottish Lowland Football League

Tranent Juniors last five games: LWLWW

DEFEAT to Gartcairn in the South Challenge Cup means Tranent’s focus is now firmly on the battle for the SLFL title.

Colin Nish’s men are five points behind Spartans at the top of the table but still have to play the capital club, as well as fellow title challengers Stirling University.

They cannot afford to look too far ahead though as they travel west to face an inconsistent Open Goal Broomhill.

Thirteen wins and 11 defeats show they are capable of picking up a result but Tranent will be extra keen for three points.

Blackburn United v Musselburgh Athletic

East of Scotland Football League Premier Division

Musselburgh Athletic last five games: WLWWW

A STOPPAGE time strike from Nathan Evans at Glenrothes got Musselburgh back to winning ways last weekend.

The Olivebank side had slipped up against Hill of Beath Hawthorn but ground out a win in Fife.

Now, they turn their attention back to the league and a trip to Blackburn United.

The West Lothian side sit one place above the relegation zone in the Premier Division and will be desperate to ease their fears of the drop.

Coldstream v Preston Athletic

East of Scotland Football League First Division

Preston Athletic last five games: LLWWL

A MIDWEEK defeat to Whitehill Welfare will need to be forgotten about as Preston look for three points in the Borders.

Inconsistency has been the downfall for Paul Currie and John Daly’s side on occasion this term.

However, they have also shown what they are capable of and will be out to finish the campaign in strong form.

Coldstream are three points above Whitehill Welfare towards the bottom of the table but will be looking to extend that gap and move away from the relegation places.

Ormiston Primrose v Hawick Royal Albert

King Cup Second Round

Ormiston Primrose last five games: LDDDW

DEFEAT to Premier Division Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale last time out was not unexpected and there are positives to take from the game.

Another cup clash pits the New Recreation Park side against fellow Second Division team Hawick Royal Albert.

It also puts Richie Weir’s men in the slightly unfamiliar territory of favourites.

The two sides met at the start of the season last summer and Ormiston picked up three points with a 4-0 win.

Luncarty v Dunbar United

King Cup Third Round

Dunbar United last five games: WLLWW

A 2-0 WIN over Fauldhouse United ensured back-to-back defeats did not become three in a row for Dunbar United.

The Seasiders still hold a handsome lead at the top of the First Division but each of their rivals have games in hand.

Today, they are in cup action while both Newtongrange Star and Glenrothes will be out to close the gap.

Luncarty, fifth in the First Division table, are the hosts as both teams look to progress in the King Cup.
