Glens hope Warout will be playable this weekend

Thornton Hibs will be praying for favourable weather this weekend after back-to-back postponements.

Hibs have not played since a 3-2 defeat to Brechin Vics on November 15 and have tumbled down to ninth in the East Region North Division as a consequence.

Craig Gilbert’s side will hope to get their promotion bid back on track this Saturday at home to bottom club Forfar Albion.

The last time the sides met in August, Hibs claimed an 8-1 victory away from home.

Also in the North Division, Kennoway Star Hearts are up to seventh after taking 11 points from their last six matches.

On Saturday they will host sixth-place Luncarty at Treaton Park for what promises to be a closely fought match.

In the East Premier League, Benny Andrew will be looking to continue his good start as Glenrothes manager away to mid-table Dundee Violet.

Glens have yet to concede a goal since Andrew took over with a 3-0 Scottish Cup win over Hermes followed by a goal-less draw in the league with Dundee North End.

Having taking only two points from their last six league matches, second bottom Glens will be keen to take something from Glenesk Park as they look to haul themselves away from the relegation zone.

Saturday’s matches kick-off at 1.45 p.m.
