Bonnyrigg boss Robbie Horn expects his side’s impressive defensive record to face a stern test in tomorrow’s Super League clash at home to Bo’ness United.

A fine run of form has taken Rose into fourth spot in the table – a point behind this weekend’s opponents but with a game in hand.

The New Dundas Park outfit are four points off leaders Penicuik Athletic with two games in hand over their Midlothian rivals

“We’ve been scoring goals but more importantly not conceding many,” said Horn.

“That’s been the big factor in our form but Bo’ness will be a huge challenge for us.

“There’s still a long way to go in the season and a lot to play for but progress has been good with everyone playing well.”

Elsewhere, Musselburgh travel to title holders Kelty in good form after hitting seven in the Junior Cup last week.

Broxburn are at home to Sauchie still smarting from last week’s cup exit at the hands of Whitletts.

Leaders Penicuik are away to Hill of Beath. Craig Meikle’s men have surprised many to sit top of the pile in only their second season in the top level but are showing a real resilience to get results.

In the Premier League, Johnny Harvey’s Haddington have a chance for more points in their race for the flag when the face Dundee Violet at home. The Hi-His are in a good position behind runaway leaders Lochee United and, having come up from the South Division, have a great chance of at least a play-off spot.

Struggling Edinburgh United have a home game against Jeanfield Swifts.

In the East of Scotland Cup, Dalkeith Thistle are away to Lochee Harp.
