Newburgh v Kirkcaldy YM

Newburgh face a YM side tomorrow who are on a poor run of form having lost their last 6 games.

This is likely to be a very close game as Newburgh’s form of recent times has been poor. A draw against Kirriemuir Thistle and a good away win at Brechin Vics giving Newburgh their only points from their last 6 games played.

The ‘Burgh have been struggling in front of goal lately, scoring only 5 times over the last 6 games. 

YM are always a difficult side to play and have improved from their poor early season form. This will make for an interesting game! 

14:30 kick off at East Shore Park
