The last time Forth got the better of Newmains in a league match United co-manager Craig Gupwell was on their books.
Goals from Kristopher Dick and Willie Mclaren gave Wanderers the 2-1 win back in April 2016. Current Victoria Park goalie Martyn Meek was also in the Wanderers squad that season.
Forth went on to win the league that year – and weren’t in the same league as Newmains again until last season.
Wanderers failed to beat United on both occasions. The first meeting was a memorable one as United picked up their first win of the season thanks to a 5-2 triumph at Kingshill Park.
The sides couldn’t be separated in the return game with a 1-1 draw at Victoria Park last December.
But Wanderers come into this clash in good form after just one defeat from four – their opening day loss to Johnstone Burgh.
They are one of five sides at the top of the table on nine points but sit fifth on goal difference.
Their goals have been shared around with Jonathan Branks top scorer with four from six competitive games.
