“Broughty will be tough” says Gibson

Culter co-manager Andy Gibson is expecting a tough game on Saturday when his side host Broughty Athletic in the 3rd Round of the GA Engineering Inter Regional Cup.

Broughty currently sit sixth in the ACA Sports East Premier League, behind Broxburn Athletic, who Culter edged past in the Scottish Junior Cup last month after a replay.

Gibson is sure Culter will be in for a physical battle this week.

He said: “We played Broughty in a pre-season game at Crombie Park and drew 0-0.

“They are a very big side and quite physical so it will be a tough game, but we need to pick ourselves up from last week as we were very poor.”

Culter were beaten 3-1 last week at Stoneywood’s Polo Park, in what was their first Superleague game since November.

The Culter co-manager was angry with the way his team performed against FC Stoneywood and warned his players that they will need to improve if they are to challenge for silverware.

“Against Stoneywood, we were second to every ball and the defending at times was juvenile, there were too many players hesitant and waiting on someone else clearing things.

“But we will work hard at training this week to turn it round.

“We still have three cups to play for and sixteen league games, so as much as we were disappointed on Saturday you have to keep the heads up and get on with it, as football can change quickly.”

The kick off this Saturday will be 2.15pm at Crombie Park.
