East of Scotland Cup: Spartans and City lock horns in Semi tonight

Posted on Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Spartans go head to head with local rivals Edinburgh City tonight in the semi final of the East of Scotland Cup at Ainslie Park (7.45pm KO).

After Saturday’s draw at home v Gala, gaffer Dougie Samuel’s attempts to edge closer to further silverware have been boosted by the return to the squad of Alan Brown, Mikey Herd and Jack Hay. The talismanic Dave Greenhill is in line for a starting berth after his cameo appearance at the weekend.

Paul Thomson remains doubtful after receiving a dull one against Gala.

City will look to build on their vital win against Elgin that saw Gary Jardine’s men take a step closer to Division 2 survival at the first time of asking.

Tonight’s winners will go on to face Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale in the Final.

The game will be streamed live as part of a pilot project undertaken by the Lowland League.  The stream will be managed by Youth Football Scotland who the league is working with to explore live streaming opportunities.
