Culter’s good run of form continued as they swept aside FC Stoneywood twice in the space of five days.

Last Tuesday (April 26) the Deesiders put five past their opponents in a thrilling Superleague encounter before a much closer 1-0 win in the 2nd Round of the McLeman Cup.

It is a big month for Culter with the possibility of adding three trophies to the Grill League Cup, which they won back in November.

The priority, however, remains the Superleague, and Culter have steadily continued to cut Hall Russell United’s lead at the top of the table.

Culter’s run of good form saw them named the Superleague Team of the Month for March.

Culter boss Andy Gibson says it is important to keep the good run of form going as the season approaches its final stages.

He said: “It was good to get those two wins and keep the run going. We created a lot of chances last Saturday but we just weren’t as clinical as the Tuesday night

“As always, we kept going and got the deserved goal from Ryan Stott, just before the end.”

Gibson’s side host First Division side Forres Thistle in the 3rd Round of the North Regional Cup on Saturday and Gibson admitted he doe not know much about the Highland side.

“We don’t know anything about them, but they are sitting second behind Inverness in the league and we know Inverness are a good side having faced them earlier in the season.

“However, I think with home advantage we should be looking to progress to the next round.”

Culter take on Forres Thistle this Saturday (May 7) at Crombie Park in the 3rd Round of the North Regional Cup with kick off at 2.15pm.
