Matchday 12 Preview – Conference B – Saturday 28th August 2021

Last week saw only one PDM Buildbase WoSFL Conference B match last week where Port Glasgow came back from a goal down to beat Kello 3-1 but this week we have an almost full card with only the Gartcairn v Cambuslang and Newmains v Dalry matches so far falling foul of the pandemic.

Looking to halt a 5 game losing streak are Carluke Rovers as they face Greenock at the John Cumming Stadium with both sides struggling for consistent form in the league so far. Carluke have only won twice this season, taking only 3 points from their last 18 on offer and Greenock, fresh from losing their management team to Kilbirnie, have 2 wins in their last 6, taking 7 points from the last 18 possible. A win for Carluke could take them above Kello and into 11th, whilst a Greenock win could lift them as high as 6th

The last unbeaten side in Conference B, St Cadoc’s make the trip to Kirkconnell to face Kello and with leaders Cambuslang’s match v Gartcairn postponed the Saint’s can take full advantage with a win and end the night on top of the pile. Kello haven’t tasted league victory since the 28th of July when they beat Newmains 4-1 at Nithsdale and they will need to be on that kind of form to hope to take anything against a side who are on a 5 game winning streak. A win for Kello would move them on to 12 points from their 11 opening games and could see them go level on points with Glasgow United in the position above them.

Ardeer Thistle have been the surprise package in Conference B this season, and they can go level on points with Cambuslang with a win away to Renfrew at New Western Park today. Having only tasted defeat once this season (4-1 at home to Cambuslang) they will be looking to keep up the pressure at the top. Renfrew will be looking for all 3 points themselves having been unbeaten in 4 of their last 6 with a 3-1 home win v Greenock on their last WoSFL MD, and a win today would take them level on points with fourth placed Port Glasgow, who are the idle team this week

Royal Albert still only have a MD2 point v Newmains to show for their efforts so far this season but they will be hoping that changes today as they welcome mid-table Ashfield to Tileworks Park. Having conceded at least 3 goals in each of their past 6 games the Albert have to be on their guard against an Ashfield side who have scored 31 goals in their 9 games so far, a win for the ‘Field would see them make it three wins in a row and would see them join Gartcairn on 18 points.

Thorniewood are unbeaten in 4 in all competitions following last weeks 4-2 pen win over Dundee Violet in the Junior cup, and have won their past 3 WoSFL matches scoring 12 goals conceding 4, Glasgow United are unbeaten in their last 4 WoSFL matches with 2 draws and 2 wins and it promises to be a close one at Robertson Park. With Gartcairn and Port Glasgow not playing a Thorniewood win would lift them to 4th.
