Preview: Tranent Juniors ready for Edinburgh University test
TRANENT Juniors can go second in the Scottish Lowland Football League (SLFL) with victory over Edinburgh University tonight (Thursday).
The Belters have enjoyed an impressive first half of the season in the fifth tier of the Scottish football pyramid.
A lengthy unbeaten run has pushed them right into the mix for promotion.
It is the only SLFL game being played tonight with a further three taking place tomorrow (Friday).
