GOWFERS’ manager Ian Gilzean is gearing his players up for a tough match away to Hill of Beath tomorrow (Saturday) as both sides are desperate for the points, writes Jennifer Newton.

Carnoustie Panmure need the victory to help try and get them out of the relegation danger zone and the Keir’s Park side will be looking to boost their title chances.

But the boss is under no illusion. It will be a hard game.

He said: “The game tomorrow will be a tough challenge with us trying to get out of the bottom group and they will be looking at the league title.

“But if we approach it in the right manner there is no reason why we can’t get a result.

“They will be really up for boosting their league title chances but we have to look after ourselves.”

The Gowfers go into the league clash having played out a 1-1 draw with St Andrews United on Saturday after coming back from a goal behind.

And Ian believes it was a case of two points dropped rather than a point gained.

He added: “I think they would be more happy with the point as I thought we were the better team with the better chances.

“We started really well and then we ended up 1-0 down after a free kick.

“But we managed to re-group and battle back for the equalising goal.

“It is just a shame we couldn’t get another.”

However the manager admits he can’t be too disheartened.

He explained: “It is good to get points on the board, even if it is just a point.

“And that shows we are going in the right direction.”
