Heriot-Watt keen to end Peebles’ home run

Have your say

Heriot-Watt University head coach Chris Smith would love to see his side become the first team to take points off Peebles Rovers at their home ground.

With John O’Hara’s side on course for promotion to the Premier next season and with an 100 per cent record at Whitsone Park, it will be a stiff task for Watt tomorrow.

But after a midweek win over Hawick, Smith says his side deserve praise for their recent run of league wins with key individuals like Elliot Sutherland and Sean Muhsin continuing to bag the goals.

“We’ll be a little short this weekend due to some players having exam leave, but there will be enough in the squad to suggest we can cause Peebles problems,” said Smith.

“It would be great to get a victory down there,” added Smith. They’ve had a tremendous season and it will be very difficult, but we’re getting the right results.”

Ormiston host Eyemouth United at Recreation Park aiming to consolidate their second placed position.

Brian Johnston’s only absentee is Kieran Watson, who is suspended.

“It’s great at this stage of the season to have a fully fit squad because we have important games coming up,” said Johnston.

Ormiston kick off at 2.30pm tomorrow, with all other games starting at 3.00pm.
