Thorniewood United’s postponed Scottish Junior Cup clash with Broughty Athletic will be played this Saturday, weather permitting.

The third round tie was called off last Saturday because of a waterlogged pitch at Robertson Park and has been rescheduled for this Saturday.

Thorniewood will be out to join local rivals Bellshill in the last 32 following Athletic’s fine 3-1 win over Dundee side Downfield. Broughty, like Thorniewood, currently play in their region’s second tier and currently lie 13th in the 16-team East Premier Division.

Bellshill return to league business on Saturday and will be looking to maintain their promotion challenge when they travel to face Blantyre Victoria.

Bellshill top the table while promotion rivals Blantyre sit fifth, six points behind but with two games in hand.

Both Saturday’s games kick off at 1.45pm.
