Penicuik next up for Fed as Athletic share eight goals

Broughty Athletic boss Keith Gibson believes his side won’t be far away from a successful season if they can maintain good form at home.

The gaffer leads his side against Penicuik Athletic this weekend and while he admits it’s going to be the usually tough encounter expected in the Super League, Keith will be looking for three points from the encounter.

The Fed manager said: “Penicuik have a lot of good players. They got a really good result at Linlithgow, they were 2-0 down and scored two very late goals.

“It’s never going to be easy in this league, every game is very tough, but if we can look after our home games we’re not going to be far away. We won’t take anything for granted and the boys will be right up for it.”

Jamie Winter hit a hat-trick of free kicks on Saturday to help Broughty to a point against Fauldhouse United.

Broughty were 2-0 down to United in the first half but Winter’s first strike made it 2-1 at the interval.

He added his second after the break to level affairs before Bryan Duell missed a penalty.

Fauldhouse went back ahead shortly after before Winter got his hat-trick for 3-3.

Jake Mair looked to have won the game for the Fed but the astonishing encounter wasn’t done yet as the hosts grabbed a late equaliser.

It was a dramatic end to one of the most dramatic games, and bizarrely, one of two 4-4 draws in the Super League on Saturday.

This weekend’s game is at Whitton Park.
