Linlithgow Rose head for Carnoustie Panmure on Saturday hoping to maintain their record of having scored in every game they have played this season.

Rose haven’t drawn a blank since the campaign began in August, a run of 29 league and cup games which have produced 72 goals.

The goals have been spread around with Tommy Coyne the top scorer on 13.

He is followed by fellow striker Colin Strickland and midfielder Blair Batchelor on nine goals apiece.

Graham Weir has contributed eight strikes while next in line is Kevin Kelbie on seven.

Completing the scorers list are Mark Tyrell, Colin Leiper and Ruari Maclennan on four, Gary Thom on three, Michael Jones, Andy Shirra, Callum Robertson (now released) on two each, Ryan Baptie, Jamie MacKenzie and Conor Kelly with one apiece and two own goals.

Manager Davie McGlynn said Rose’s record showed the team were capable of scoring.

“We have six strikers and they all have goals in them and we also have players from midfield capable of scoring. Hopefully we can keep that going.”

Supporters going to the match at Carnoustie on Saturday should note the bus will leave the social club at 12.15pm.
