NEWMAINS face Muirkirk for the third time this calendar year – and will hope it’s a date to remember.

Co-bosses Paul Davies and Craig Gupwell take their side to Burnside Park on the back of a 3-0 defeat to unbeaten Johnstone Burgh last time out.

But the Kirk also emerged pointless as they lost their 100 percent start to the season with a 2-1 loss at Vale of Clyde.

The last time United played the Ayrshire side in Muirkirk they lost 5-0 but they redeemed themselves with a 3-3 draw at Victoria Park two months later.
