EK Tuggers visit New Home Park for the first time tomorrow no doubt intent on avenging their 7-2 home defeat earlier in the season and heaping further misery on a Brook Street side that have lost their last three matches. That remains Tuggers’ heaviest loss so far and is a blot on the copybook in what has been a solid first season in the division.

Our relative records show five wins and five defeats but Tuggers’ goal difference is slightly better than our own, however that defeat earlier in the season means that Brook Street will have to be on their guard tomorrow as Marcus admitted earlier this evening.

“That’s something we’ve definitely got to be aware of, especially given our poor form of late”, he said. “They totally took Airth Castle apart last weekend and I’m told they were excellent. They are certainly capable of scoring, and that result proved how good they can be”.

Midfielder Marco Contarello will be missing through injury for Tuggers, while Brook Street, with news that Andrew Cleary did not feature in Scotland U-20s 7-0 defeat in Finland, will be at full strength.

Kick off tomorrow is at 1630 BST.
