Matchday 10 – Conference C Preview – 21st August 2021

Our last preview for Matchday Ten takes us to PDM Buildbase West of Scotland Football League Conference C.

Theres already been a match played in Conference C, last night when Drumchapel moved back to the top of the table with a 2-1 win over Vale of Leven at the Donald Dewar Centre, goals from Cammy Smith and Gary Muir for Drumchapel and Lee McGeachy netting for the Vale, all goals coming within the opening half an hour.

Looking to regain top spot from Drumchapel will be St Roch’s, who ended Drumchapel’s 100% start to the season with a 3-1 win at James McGrory Park on Saturday to make it 6 unbeaten for the Candy, who travel to Kilsyth looking to make it seven. Kilsyth themselves will be looking to build on Saturday’s sensational 5-0 win away to Wishaw, only their second win of the season and having lost 4 on the bounce after their first win will be hoping history does not repeat itself.

Neilston remain Conference C’s only unbeaten side and they face a tough match against a resurgent St Anthony’s at McKenna Park. The Farmer Boys have only conceded four goals in the 7 games they have played this season, and have won their last five in a row, a 1-0 win over Lanark on Saturday the latest win. The Ants picked up a 3-1 win away to Vale of Clyde and have won 2 of their last 3, wins over both Vale’s sandwich a defeat at home last Wednesday to Ardrossan and manager Danny Taylor will be looking to end Neilstons 100% record.

Wishaw will be looking to turn their recent fortunes around as they have lost their last 2 matches and find a return to form that saw them win 6 of their first 7, drawing the other but they face a Larkhall side who themselves have been slightly struggling for results with only 2 wins in their last 6, although they were unlucky on Saturday, being pipped 3-2 by 4th place Glasgow Perthshire at Keppoch Park

Petershill take on managerless Vale of Clyde after the Tin Pail manager Mark McKay tendered his resignation following Saturdays defeat at home to St Anthony’s and will be looking to keep up their recent run of form thats lead to 1 defeat in the last six, a 1-1 draw v Ardrossan on Saturday keeping them in 6th position just above Winton Rovers who sit 7th. Vale of Clyde on the other hand have only 1 win in their opening 8 matches having lost four of their last 6.

7th place Ardrossan Winton Rovers face bottom side Yoker at Holm Park and it promises to be a tough match for the visitors as Yoker start to build some momentum after a dreadful start to the season saw them only pick up their first point a week ago today away to St Roch’s, a result they followed up by getting their first win of the season beating Vale of Leven 2-1 at Millburn. Ardrossan are unbeaten in three matches having won two in a row before Saturday’s draw with Petershill and a win tonight, coupled with the right run of results would see them break into the top five come full time

East Kilbride Thistle travel through to Lanark with the home side looking for their first win since the opening day where they beat Larkhall 2-1 whilst EK have 2 wins in their last four. A win for Lanark would see then leapfrog EK and possibly out of the bottom three  and a win for EK could move the Showpark based side further up the table
