A HUGE landmark is set to be reached by Kilbirnie Ladeside skipper David Anderson on Saturday.

The midfielder, who has scored in his last two games, is set to make his 250th appearance for the club in the Ayrshire Weekly Press Cup opening round tie away to Craigmark Burntonians.

This week manager Budgie McGhie paid tribute to the player, who netted one of the goals in the 4-1 home win against Johnstone Burgh in the West of Scotland Cup first round.

He said: "Not many players make so many appearances for one club. David has a great attitude, work-rate and lots of skill. He has scored for us in the last two games. We will organise a presentation to mark the occasion."

The manager was encouraged with the showing against Burgh and said: "We played well and that's back-to-back wins for the first time in a while, which is encouraging."

McGhie is preparing properly for the trip to Dalmellington.

He added: "They are going well and are second in the District League so we have to prepare for it professionally. I have won one and lost one at Station Park with Clydebank but hopefully we have enough to get the job done."

Beith boss Johnny Millar was relieved to return to winning ways after two straight defeats.

The Mighty defeated Neilston 5-1 at home in another West tie and the boss said: "It's not the best we've played and the scoreline flattered us but it was good to win the match after the last couple of weeks."

Saturday sees his side face Pollok away and the manager added: "If we want to have any aspirations of winning the title this is a game we must look to win."
