FC Edinburgh's Callum Crane keeping his feet on the ground

Callum Crane insists no one is getting carried away with FC Edinburgh's fantastic start to life in League One.

The Citizens are riding the crest of a wave after earning promotion via the play-offs in May with four wins from six and just two points adrift of leaders Dunfermline in second.

However, ahead of this weekend's trip to Queen of the South, full-back Crane insists the squad at Meadowbank are remaining grounded.

"We're not getting carried away," the 26-year-old explained. "Obviously the 6-0 win at Airdrie was fantastic but if we can get another three points against Queens then we're definitely going in the right direction. No one is thinking about winning the league or play-offs. We've had a good start but that is all it is.

"It was disappointing we didn't play last week because we want to keep that momentum going. I personally think it was the right decision to call off the game out of respect. We know it's going to be a really tough game against Queen of the South. They've recruited a few good players over the summer and although they haven't been in the best of form so far, they're still a full-time club.

"The gaffer (Alan Maybury) has recruited very well and that's shown in the results we have. It's not by luck - we've played well. The squad has got such a good chemistry. No one is guaranteed a start which I think is a good thing. You have to train and play well in matches because if you don't, you're not going to be in the team on a Saturday."
