Matchday Preview: Bo'ness United - 24/10/20

23rd October 2020

Caledonian Braves face Bo'ness United tomorrow as Ricky Waddell's side go in search of their first points of the season.

Following narrow defeats to Bonnyrigg Rose and Berwick Rangers, the Braves travel to the banks of the Forth in a 3pm kick-off at Newtown Park.

Max Christie's United are sat near the top of the table, having picked up maximum points from their three games so far.

Following a close 2-1 win over Cumbernauld Colts, the B.U.'s have recorded two 4-0 wins on the trot, against Vale of Leithen and then Edinburgh University.

It's a remarkable run of form for the home side, who are only playing their inaugural Lowland League campaign following promotion from the East of Scotland Premier Division last season.

However, it hasn't all been plain sailing. In their opening fixture, United were unable to name any substitutes and only raised that number to three against Edinburgh Uni, following an injury crisis in Max Christie's squad.

It's a similar story for Ricky Waddell. His side has already felt the squeeze following big injuries to key men.

Ross McNeil continues to miss out following his injury at Bonnyrigg, and he's joined on the sidelines by Neil McLaughlin - who continues to self-isolate.

Jamie Walker trained again through the week alongside Jean-Guy Lucas, who continues to step up his recovery from an ACL injury, whilst Dom Slattery and Gavin Lachlan battle niggles.
