YOKER ATHLETIC play in an area famed for its shipbuilding – and Newmains know they’ll have to push the boat out there tomorrow (Saturday).
Not main sides have found it plain sailing at Holm Park this season.
The Clydebank outfit were relegated from League One last term after finishing six points from safety.
But they have won six of their seven home league matches so far in this campaign to sit third in League Two with games in hand.
Their last match didn’t provide the result they wanted though as they lost 5-2 to Vale of Clyde.
It was even harder to take for Athletic – nicknamed Whe Ho – after they’d gone in at the break 2-1 up thanks to goals from Gregor Cree and David Crerand.
United go into the clash 18 points adrift of Athletic but buoyed by a 3-1 win at Saltcoats last time out.
