Bonnyrigg boss Max Christie knows his team need to start winning on a more consistent basis if they are to spark their campaign into life.

The Midlothian side’s unbeaten start has been undermined somewhat by the fact they have drawn three of their five Super League games. As a result, they already find themselves six points off the pace.

They won at home to Lochee last weekend and will be looking to build momentum when they visit Musselburgh tomorrow.

Christie, however, is braced for a tough test against David McGlynn’s side who sit level with Bonnyrigg on the nine-point mark.

“David has them playing good football again and it’ll be a real test for us to get all three points,” said Christie, whose side were this week handed a tough Junior Cup draw against Super League leaders Bo’ness. “It’s been a week of ups and downs with the draw for the Scottish on Tuesday giving us a bye in the first round, then hearing that the SJFA had made a hash of it and that we had in fact been drawn at home to Bo’ness.

“That was hard to take, but we’re at home and in front of a big home support I feel we can do it. We’ll worry about the Scottish later, though, because our priority is beating Musselburgh tomorrow.”

Elsewhere, Bo’ness will bid to protect the only 100 per cent record in the Super League when they visit a Camelon side who have given them plenty problems in recent times.

Newtongrange and Broxburn clash at New Victoria Park, while champions Linlithgow face the tricky trip to Sauchie. Armadale are in Fife to play a Kelty side who have recovered well from a slow start.
