THE GOWFERS need to continue their good form as they face a tough opponent tomorrow according to their assistant manager, writes Johnston Ralston.

Graeme Christie will be taking the helm this week against Kelty and is keen for his side to keep up their good work after defeating Brechin Vics 4-1.

He said: “Last week was a decent performance from what I’ve heard, although I wasn’t there as I was on a scouting mission at Kelty.

“By all accounts they performed well and they made use of their attacking options to score four good goals, with at least another five coming off the woodwork.

“It was all positives that we were able to take away from that game.”

However, scouting out the opposition has left Graeme in no doubt about Kelty’s capabilities. He said: “They also had a comfortable 4-1 win last week [against Arbroath Vics] like ourselves, they have several Scottish junior internationalists in their ranks and have had a good start to their league campaign.

“Saturday will definitely be a tough game for us.”

There are some injury concerns, but should be overcome thanks to a good team pool. Graeme said: “On the plus side we have a couple of boys back this week, Graeme Dailly and Scott Robertson look to be in contention for a place this week, but we’ve got an injury doubt with Scott Hunter who’s hurt his hamstring. There’s a couple of injuries niggling boys, but it probably won’t keep them out.

“Fortunately this year we’ve got ample cover in most areas. In previous years come the middle of the season we’ve been a bit short, but we’ve got a broader squad this year.”
