Last time out, the ‘Gers won at home to Dergview thanks to an early strike from young forward Stewart Nixon and now Niall Currie’s men will be looking to record their first back-to-back league wins of the season.
Standing in their way is Colin Malone’s PSNI who will have their sights set on picking up their first points of the season when Rangers visit. Most recently, they narrowly lost out 3-2 to Loughgall at Lakeview Park in what was their fifth league defeat of the season.
Carrick midfielder Ashton McDermott could line-up against the side he left during the summer, meanwhile former ‘Gers player Dale Malone may face his ex-employers.
The last meeting between these sides came almost exactly a year ago in the County Antrim Shield when the East Antrim side progressed with a 4-2 win courtesy of goals from Ben Roy (2), Eamon McAllister and Sean Green.
An average of 4.5 goals per game has been recorded over the last five fixtures between these sides, so it’s sure to be an exciting encounter tomorrow afternoon.
Ken Gibbons will take charge of tomorrow afternoon’s match, with Michael Anderson and Aaron Graham the assistant referees.
As always, the Spirit of ’76 SC will be running a bus to Newforge Lane which will depart from Taylors Avenue at 2:00PM, with travel costs of £5 for members and £7 for non-members.
Get yourself along tomorrow afternoon to cheer on the lads as they aim to pick up another three points in the Bluefin Sport Championship! #AmberArmy
