Peter Murphy’s Annan Athletic have it all to do to salvage their promotion dream tonight.

The Galabank side will try to overturn a 2-0 deficit in the second leg of their Scottish League One play-off final against Edinburgh City.

It is all or nothing at their home ground for Murphy’s side tonight as they try to reach Scotland’s third tier.

They must come from behind after second-half goals from Innes Murray and Ryan Shanley gave Alan Maybury’s Edinburgh the clear advantage at the halfway point in the tie on Tuesday night.

Annan, managed by former Carlisle United favourite Murphy, are favourites with the bookmakers to win tonight, priced 21/20 with William Hill and Evens with Bet365.

A 3-0 win which would seal promotion is 20/1. Edinburgh are 9/4 to win the second leg and the draw is 13/5.

Kick-off this evening is 7.30pm and the second leg is being televised on BBC Alba.
