Match preview - Leith Athletic v East Kilbride

  • SFA South Regional Challenge Cup
  • Round 3 tie sees Kilby travel to Peffermill
  • Gaffer Brian Kerr has full squad to choose from

Kilby will make the trip to Peffermill on Saturday, where we will face Leith Athletic in Round 3 of the South of Scotland Challenge Cup.

Manager Brian Kerr, who celebrates his 37th birthday today (Friday) will be looking for a strong performance from his team to make it through to the next round, ahead of next Saturday's home William Hill Scottish Cup tie with Spartans.

The EK gaffer expects to have a full squad to choose from ahead of the match, with keeper Jacob Kean now back in full training. Chris Smith, Fabio Capuano and Barry Russell all enjoyed a full 90 minutes of match fitness in the Reserves 2-0 win at Stirling Albion on Monday along with Michael Anderson and Liam Craig, and competition for places seems keener than ever at K-Park.

Home side Leith, currently in fourth spot of Conference A, in the revised East of Scotland League set-up, go into the match high on confidence after a 1-0 win over Easthouses Lily last week, courtesy of a Stefan Hay goal.

There will be a healthy travelling Kilby support on Saturday, with our ever growing Supporters club taking a bus through, and live match updates will be available via our club Twitter, @officialekfc
