GREENOCK Wanderers face a must-win game against relegation rivals Ardrossan Accies tomorrow.

It's fair to say this will be the Fort Matilda men's most important match of the campaign as a victory will keep them in touch with the Ayrshire men and fellow strugglers Strathmore.

Wanderers are sitting on five points, Ardrossan have seven points while Strathmore are on 10.

They way the season is panning out, these three teams are battling it out to avoid the one relegation spot.

Ardrossan's recent form has been erratic. They travelled up to Strathmore and lost 21-5 and the previous week the Accies beat the same opposition 51-7 at Sorbie Road Playing Fields, confirming that Strathmore do not travel well.

Coach Grant Sweenie still has selection problems mainly due to work commitments this week and the weakened senior men's squad will be bolstered by the seconds team.

The second XV, who lost to Glasgow Hawks last Saturday, have turned down a friendly with Allan Glens to support the 1st XV.

Martyn Knapton, Gav Bannerman and Storie are available to strengthen the backs and Simon Bleesdale is available in the forwards.

Saturday's selection is probably the best squad that Wanderers could put together.

Training has gone well this week and the players are eager to get back to increasing their tally of points to avoid relegation.

The club did really well to get promoted back to the National Leagues from the Regional ranks and they won't give up their place in Division Three without a fight.

Elsewhere, the ladies won't get an early chance to rebound from their narrow defeat to Wigtownshire last week as they need to wait until next year to play their final league fixture.

The girls 10-16 year squad travel down to Kilmarnock for a development day.

Because their numbers don't allow them to play competitive games, this is the squad's only opportunity to combine with other clubs to be coached and play.

The trip also gives them an opportunity to wear their new tops kindly donated by the senior girls and Brow House.
