GREENOCK Wanderers will be looking to cause the shock of the day when they take on table toppers Lasswade, writes John Dyer.

The Fort Matilda men will be desperate to take to the field for the first time since October 16 when they lost to Howe of Fife.

Grant Sweenie's side have had an unenviable record so far this season, with only one win against Ardrossan back in September.

However, it will take a huge effort and a well off par performance from Lasswade for Wanderers to end their four-game winless run.

The sides met on the opening day of the season, with Wanderers losing 36-7.

Wanderers played well and might have taken something from the game but the same could be said about all other games this season.

Lasswade sit top of the table with eight wins from eight and are a clear 12 points ahead of second-placed West of Scotland.

Bizarrely last week Ardrossan's home game against Hillhead was postponed due to an injury sustained by the referee in the 58th minute.

If it had lasted two minutes longer the score would have stood, as it was at that time 27-10 to Hills.

Ardrossan still remain three points behind Wanderers in bottom spot and play West of Scotland at home tomorrow.

Wanderers' starting line-up has yet to be confirmed as head coach Sweenie is still waiting on fitness calls on several players.

In the forwards Andy Graham sits out for a further week, Louie Hoodless may have to work commitments and Murray McKechnie is doubtful.

Club captain Callum Robb returns after holiday. In the backs Leigh Tyley needs another week to recover from an injury and Andrew McDougall may be unavailable due to work, although Martin Knapton is available again.

After a good showing last week by the second team against Lenzie a number of players put themselves in the mix for selection.

Unless Wanderers' personnel problems improve and the players show more consistency the spiral towards relegation will continue unabated.
