Matchday Preview - Greenock
Probably the most highly anticipated fixture in League 1 this weekend as two promotion contender, Blantyre Vics and Greenock, go head-to-head for the final time this season. Defeat for The Nock would certainly end any chance of them going up this season, with only three matches to play. Despite sitting sixth in the table currently, Blantyre are still well and truly in the mix. With nine games left to play this season and a thirteen point gap to Ardrossan in third - victory over Greenock tomorrow would stand them in good stead.
Greenock are coming into this fixture on the back of two defeats, losing to a last minute goal against Wishaw at home and losing 2 - 0 at Keppoch Park to a struggling Glasgow Perthshire side.
The Vics are on a far better run of form, coming back from a bitterly disappointing defeat at Bellshill with a 6 - 1 victory over Maybole and a 4 - 0 victory over local rivals Wishaw. They will be dreading over some results that came earlier in their season, but they have found their way back on track and now have feesable promotion hopes.
Last time out when these sides met at Ravenscraig Stadium back in January it was certianly an epic. With an early goal from the hosts through a close range effort from Stuart Higgins. The Vics then pulled two goals back thanks to Kierin Coleman and Scott McKean. Garry Campbell then seen red for a second booking and the hosts took advantage of the numerical advantage, running out 3 - 2 winners on the day after late goals from Darren Kennedy and Matthew Sutherland.
Tomorrow it should certainly be an exciting match, and could be detrimental in deciding who is playing in the Championship next season.
Blantyre - 4/7
Draw - 9/2
Greenock - 9/4
