Premier League: Respect to be paid in battle of the 'Burns

BROXBURN boss Steve Pittman will be guarding against complacency when his high-flying side entertain struggling Whitburn tomorrow, writes martin dempster.

This time last season, Whitburn were still a Super League side while Broxburn were battling to get out of the South League. Now, a few months into the current campaign, Broxburn are sitting proudly at the top of the Premier Division table - ten points ahead of their opponents tomorrow.

Pittman's side have hit 13 goals in their last two league outings, following up a 5-2 win at Thornton by hammering Ballingry 8-0 at Albyn Park a fortnight ago.

And, despite having a man sent off after going behind, they kept up the good work last Saturday, winning 2-1 at Ardeer in the second round of the Emirates Scottish Cup.

By contrast, Whitburn lost 6-3 at home to Cumnock and they face another tall order tomorrow in a game that has been switched from Central Park.

In other games, Penicuik will be hoping to build on a 6-2 win at Kinnoull when they travel to Broughty Athletic, while Arniston return to league business for the first time in a month at home to Glenrothes.
