Leoš Loos just fails to make contact with Fraser Carragher’s cross in our last encounter.

The new league campaign kicks off tomorrow with Brook Street making the relatively short trip to the central belt to face Airth Castle Rovers.

Neither side has been involved in the transfer market during the close season so it’s shaping up to be two familiar line-ups that face each other at The Turret tomorrow afternoon.

“The two sides are fairly evenly matched”, admitted Brook Street coach Marcus Lövman this morning. “Although we’ve got a pretty good record against them, the matches are usually close and I see no reason why this game should be any different”.

“The players have done some hard training over the close season and everyone at the club is raring to go”, he added. “We’re hoping to have a lot of fans heading down, so everyone is looking to give them plenty to cheer about. It’s important to get a good start to the league campaign, and I feel we have prepared well. Now it’s time to put that into practice”.

The Brook Street coach has a full squad to select from and his Rovers counterpart Şenez Aksel only has winger Moreno Lindenberg bruised from injury picked up in Rovers’ close-season friendly against les girondins de Bidou. The Swiss however came through Wednesday’s Cup win over Warrender FC without any adverse effects and is expected to line up tomorrow.
