MATCH PREVIEW :: BSC Glasgow vs. Gretna 2008
Written by Sam Jenkinson
As Mark Adams and his BSC side enjoyed a weekend off, the Lowland League table around them got even tighter.
After a goalfest last time out against Preston Athletic, BSC moved onto 22 points for the season – with last weekend seeing four teams join them at the same points tally, including Saturday’s opponents Gretna FC 2008.
And as the Lowland League season continues throughout the winter, those five teams – and a few more are looking to push on up towards Spartans, Dalbeattie and the rest of the top four.
A win on Saturday could put BSC above Cumbernauld Colts into fifth – but a defeat could also see them drop as low as 10th in an incredibly tight league.
Gretna find themselves behind BSC on goal difference thanks to a solid first half of their season.
But postponements have interrupted their recent campaign, and new manager Matt Henney has only had the chance to take his side three times since the end of October.
There have been encouraging signs for the ex-Gretna midfielder in those limited outings, however, as they picked up two wins against Selkirk and Preston.
The Borders side exited the Scottish Cup in the second round this season, with defeat at Raydale Park following a good draw away to Highland League side Buckie Thistle.
