The league leaders are the visitors this weekend as Kennoway Star Hearts make the trip over from Fife to Creamery Park.
Following our 2-2 draw against Tranent Juniors last weekend the Jags are now 5 games unbeaten since our win away to St Andrews in December. The three points were within our grasp against our rivals from East Lothian and a late equaliser seemed harsh in the team but the side had shown great character after going a goal behind to lead the game after two Robbie Feeney goals. Hassan Nyang is a major doubt for this weekends game after attending hospital following a nasty head knock sustained near the end of the match.
Kennoway Star Hearts have had a brilliant season so far and find themselves sitting top of the league after 19 games. Incredibly, they have yet to draw a game this season with a record of 14 wins and 5 defeats. Bathgate have only lost 1 game more. With 5 wins in their last 6 Kennoway are on a very impressive run and have a potent strike force.
Bathgate will go into this game against Kennoway full of confidence and knowing that they have a very healthy goals tally this year at Creamery Park. The previous game between the sides was very evenly matched but The Jags lost the game 3-1 after failing to take their first half chances. This will be an exciting match between the sides and a win for Bathgate could provide a springboard for a very exciting second half of the season indeed.
The match kicks off at 2.00pm and entry is £6/£3. We fully expect this to be a terrific match between two teams bang in form just now. We would love to have your support. Together we are stronger.
