Edinurgh City manager Gary Jardine asks for full focus

Have your say

Edinburgh City can only focus on themselves when they travel to Netherdale to face Gala Fairydean Rovers looking to maintain the gap at the top of the table.

The reigning Ferrari Packaging Lowland League champions are 15 points ahead of second placed Stirling University, who have four games in hand, and Gary Jardine is content to keep getting points on the board and let the rest worry about games in hand. “It’s important that we take care of what we’ve got to do,” he insisted. “That’s now nine games to go and we can only take care of what we’ve got in front of us. Tomorrow’s going to be another difficult game. Gala are good at home, but three points again is a must.”

Whitehill Welfare switched their match with East Kilbride to K Park after concerns that Ferguson Park wouldn’t survive the week’s weather. Grant Carnie’s men will hope Kilby have one eye on their midweek showdown with Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale for the right to play Celtic, as Welfare play just their second competitive game in nine weeks.
