Subject to a 9.15am pitch inspection we welcome Edinburgh City to Central Park for our first game in 2021.

This will be our second game with the Citizen’s this season following our 1-0 win at Ainslie Park on the second week of the league campaign. Brad Smith, now back at Broughty Athletic, got the decisive goal with 12 minutes to go as we played the majority of the match with ten men after David Cox was sent off seven minutes from the break.

After finishing as runners up last season the Ainslie Park side will be disappointed not to have built on that and currently sit in fifth place after completing a third of their fixtures. Perhaps surprisingly three of their four league defeats have come at home with Stranraer also winning 1-0 and a fortnight ago Stirling Albion coming back from being two down at the break to win 3-2. The other home games have seen a 1-0 win over Elgin City and 5-2 against Albion Rovers.

In contrast away from home has been impressive with a 5-1 win at Brechin City, 4-0 at Annan and a 3-3 draw with leaders Queen’s Park. Their only defeat on the road came at Stenhousemuir when they went down 2-0 back in early November. In the Scottish Cup last Saturday they ran out 3-1 winners over Caledonian Braves of the Lowland League and are away to Airdrie next Saturday in the Second Round.
