The Hi Hi’s face a difficult task in West Lothian on Saturday when they travel to meet Blackburn United in a Premier League match at New Blackburn Park. Six points separate these sides in the league and both clubs will be more than aware of the importance of picking up maximum points. Blackburn have held down a place in the East of Scotland top division for a few seasons and know what is needed to stay in this league. It’s been a learning curve for manager Scott Bonar and his players and they are determined to consolidate their place in this division. When the sides met at Millfield back in November, the Hi Hi’s came out on top by the odd goal in five after a hard fought ninety minutes. The introduction of 16 year old Robbie Peffers at half time influenced the outcome and his two goals ensured the points stayed at Millfield. However Blackburn impressed, especially in the first half, and the Hi Hi’s will have to be at their best if they are take anything from the match. Once again injuries will have an impact on manager Bonnar’s selection with recent signing Keir Russell struggling with an achilles injury. Key defender Cammy Watson, who has been out since August, is still feeling the effects of a serious knee injury and it may be some time before he returns.
