After a run of three away matches, the Hi Hi’s are back at Millfield this Saturday for a run of three successive home matches. First up is the East of Scotland Qualifying Cup 4th round tie against Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts, where a place in the last eight awaits the winners. This will be followed by the much anticipated league match against Leith Athletic on Saturday, 12th February, and then Rosyth visit for a league game on the 19th.
The focus is fully on Saturday’s match against Hillfield Swifts, who currently sit mid-table in the Premier League, a division above the Hi Hi’s. The Fifers have been something of a surprise packet since they joined the East Of Scotland ranks, and they have a key player in Greig Spence who has hit 28 goals this season and once featured in a big money move from Alloa to Celtic.
Haddington manager Scott Bonar will make a few changes with injuries and suspensions ruling out several key players. The Hi Hi’s main focus this season will be the Conference A title but they also have their eye on some silverware and as well as the East of Scotland Qualifying Cup, they also retain an interest in the King Cup.
Recently published stats show that the Hi Hi’s average league attendance is just over 200 so far this season, but if you add in cup ties then it will be a lot higher. These next three games should attract healthy attendances to the neat Haddington ground.
