Christie praying erratic Bonnyrigg show their good side

MANAGER Max Christie reckons Bonnyrigg have been the Jekyll & Hyde of the East Region so far this season, having mixed good with bad.

The former champions are sitting second, a point behind Hill of Beath, in the Super League after three wins and a draw in their opening four matches. They recorded an impressive 4-1 win at Musselburgh last weekend and are on the road again tomorrow, taking on Bathgate at Creamery Park.

“It’s a good start and if we keep showing the same level of commitment as we have in recent games then the degree of optimism I can sense could well be vindicated,” said Christie.

“But we’ve also shown so far this season that we can be bad, notably when we lost 4-1 to Broxburn in our League Cup section.”

Rose came from behind to win at Olivebank, where Ryan McCallum scored against his old club. “I think he enjoyed that,” said Christie. “We were screaming at him to pass but he hit a screamer into the net from 35 yards.”

The Bonnyrigg boss added Stuart Roseburgh to his squad recently, having snapped up the former Newtongrange winger from Linlithgow. “Stuart is a lovely footballer and someone I enjoy watching. We are delighted to have him,” said Christie. “But he didn’t play last Saturday. The boys are playing well at the moment and you can’t change a winning team.”

After back-to-back Cup ties, champions Bo’ness return to Super League action tomorrow at home to St Andrews United.
