The Fifers are only above them on goal difference so that presents United, beaten 7-1 by Kinnoull in Perth and Kinross last weekend, with an opportunity to leapfrog their visitors into 14th place in the table.

The reverse fixture back in July is one of only two victories for manager Jordan Gracie’s side so far this season, having edged that game 1-0.

United’s scorer last Saturday was Tom Fowler.
