Junior sides Thorniewood United and Bellshill Athletic are back in action this Saturday after a weekend on the sidelines.

Neither side had a game last week after both received byes in the first round of the Scottish Junior Cup.

League football resumes this Saturday with both sides having home matches.

Thorniewood take on Maybole at Robertson Park in a Super League First Divison fixture while Lanark United visit Fullarton Park to take on Bellshill on Central League First Division business.

Thorniewood are still chasing their first league win of the season, having won two and drawn two of their opening four games.

The Viewpark outfit are third bottom of the table while Maybole, in contrast, are third top with just one defeat from their five games so far.

Honours were even between the sides last season with Thorniewood winning 2-0 at Robertson Park but losing by the same score in Ayrshire.

Bellshill will be out to boost their promotion bid at the expense of a Lanark side rooted to the foot of the table.

Athletic are third after winning three out of their first four games and will be confident of extending that sequence against a Lanark side who have lost all four games so far.

Bellshill also did the double over Lanark last season, winning 2-1 at home and 2-0 away.

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