St Andrews United were very unlucky last Saturday not to take maximum points from Bonnyrigg Rose.

St Andrews United embark on a road trip once again this weekend, as they travel to Albyn Park to take on Broxburn Athletic.

The fixture is tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon in the the East Region Super League.

Albyn Park has been a happy hunting ground for Saints over recent years and Gus Malone’s men will go in to the game in a positive mood, after last week’s draw at home to Bonnyrigg Rose.

Malone told The Herald: “We are going to Broxburn to win the game – we have nothing to fear.

“We have proved we can boss most teams in this league, so why shouldn’t we return with the points?”

The boss added: “Saturday’s game against Bonnyrigg was the story of our season in 90 minutes – a missed penalty, pummelling the opposition and having no luck in front of goal.

“Rose knew they had been in a game on Saturday and were very happy to return south with a point.

“Tomorrow is another day, so they say, but, as we proved against Linlithgow, we can create plenty of chances.

“With a bit of luck at Broxburn, a few more will go in.”

Results last weekend didn’t exactly help Saints’ bid for safety, as Armadale scored a late winner at Musselburgh and Kelty drew at home to Sauchie.

But United do still have games in hand.

Ballingry travel to face Sauchie, while Carnoustie, still in danger of being dragged into the battle, are in cup action against Blairgowrie.
