Athletic aim to get back on track

Thorniewood v Bellshill
Thorniewood v Bellshill

Bellshill will be out to get their promotion bid back on track on Saturday when they face Larkhall Thistle at Fullarton Park.

Athletic’s bid to regain Super League status suffered a setback last week when they went down to promotion rivals Dunipace, a defeat which left them two points behind leaders Carluke.

But with just seven points covering seven teams - from Carluke to seventh-placed Larkhall - there is still everything to play for over the closing stages of the season.

Meanwhile Thorniewood will continue their bid to retain their place in the Super League First Division - but face a tough test against Beith at Robertson Park.

United moved up to sixth after last week’s win at Kilsyth, but Beith have lost just once in 16 games as they seek a quickfire return to the top flight after last week’s relegation.

However Thorniewood did give the Ayrshire side one of their hardest games of the season when only a last minute own goal gave them a 4-3 win at Beith in September.

Both Saturday’s games will kick-off at 2pm.
