It’s crunch time for Glenrothes Juniors this Saturday as they welcome Kinnoull to Warout Stadium for a match that could define their league season.

After making a decent start to their campaign, Glens have slipped to third bottom in the East Premier table following three straight league defeats, while Kinnoull are rock bottom with just one point from their opening 10 fixtures.

With the bottom four clubs facing automatic relegation, Glens will be keen to get themselves back up the table as quickly as possible, starting with Saturday’s must-win match at home.

Glens will hope that the 8-1 demolition of Kello Rovers in the Scottish Cup on Saturday can prove to be a turning point in their season.

In the North Division, Thornton Hibs will look to keep up their promotion charge at home to Downfield.

Hibs, who are currently fourth in the table, can close the gap on their second-placed opponents to just one point with a victory at Memorial Park.

Kennoway Star Hearts are also in league action, travelling to Dundee to face an East Craigie side who sit level with them on 14 points in mid table.

Hearts have picked up after a slow start to the season and will be looking for a fourth straight win that could push them into the top half of the table. All Saturday’s matches kick-off at 2.00 p.m.
