Rose remain undefeated after five games but face an arduous task in toppling a Colts side who inflicted a 2-1 defeat on Kelty Hearts six days ago.

Edinburgh University will be looking to stretch the gap over bottom-of-the table Dalbeattie Star at Islecroft tomorrow.

The students’ form has picked up in recent weeks after a slow start, back-to-back wins over Vale of Leithen in the league and Football Nation Qualifying Cup have given manager Dorian Ogunro and his players a platform to build on. Hosts Star have yet to register a point and even score a goal in their first five games, conceding 19 times. Victory for the Uni could move them towards mid-table.
