Bellshill Athletic could clinch promotion to the Super League on Saturday if results go their way.

Following Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Blantyre Vics, Brian McGinty’s men need four points from their last two games to go up.

Blantyre Vics, with numerous games in hand, are likely to secure one of the two promotion spots, leaving Dunipace as the only other side who could stop Bellshill going up.

Bellshill travel to face Lanark United tomorrow and if they get a better result there than Dunipace do in their match at Lesmahagow they will be back in the Super League after a four-year absence.

But one team who won’t be there is Thorniewood United whose relegation was confirmed last week.

The Viewpark side have no game on Saturday but will travel to Glasgow on Monday night for a Euroscot Engineering Central League Cup third round tie against a Maryhill side who put Bellshill out on penalties in the second round last week.
