Match Day: Annan Athletic (H)

After a great win at Hampden last week we host Annan Athletic at home today.

OPPONENTS: Annan athletic

Annan Athletic have provided us with two extremely close and physical matches earlier in the season and currently occupy the final play off spot. Peter Murphy’s men are a tough side to play against and although they have lost as many as they have won, their matches are all close run affairs. Their January transfer business has seen Lewis Strapp and Kyle Bradley extend their deals with young goalkeeper Aidan McAdams join on loan from Rangers until the end of the season.

Welcome Jack Breen

Edinburgh City are delighted to announce the loan signing of Jack Breen from Hamilton Academicals until the end of the season.

The 19 year old right sided midfielder began his career at Hibernian before moving to Accies at the start of the 2017/18 season, where he has featured predominantly for the development and reserve teams.

Manager James McDonaugh commented on Jack’s signing; “Jack comes to us at a crucial time of the season where we need to add not just numbers but also quality to compliment what we have in the group. I’m aware of his qualities having previously worked with him and I hope he can benefit his career from his loan spell with us as much as we benefit from having him”.

Having received SFA clearance Jack will be free to join the squad for tomorrow’s match with Annan Athletic.

Match Preview: Stirling Albion (H)

We kick off 2019 with a home match against Stirling Albion.

OPPONENTS: stirling albion

The Binos are another team to have changed management this term with Dave McKay being replaced by Kevin Rutkiewicz after a poor start to the season by their standards. Their results have improved and today will be a tough test no doubt. Per their website defender Lee Hamilton, midfielder Kevin Moon and forward Mark Stewart remain on the injury list. Striker Dylan Mackin is a doubt after picking up a knock in the 2-1 win over Cowdenbeath but left-back Jordan Allan should be fit despite also being forced off in that match.
