Newtongrange goalkeeper Kieron Renton has warned his table-topping team-mates to keep their feet firmly on the ground despite their stunning form.

Star sit six points clear at the head of the Super League, having won five games on the bounce.

While Bo’ness and Linlithgow are lurking with games in hand, Star’s fantastic run means they are going to take some stopping in the championship race.

Keeper Renton, though, knows there is still a long way to go. “We’ve done very well this season but there’s still a lot of games to be played and a lot of points to be won,” said Renton, whose team travel to Dundee tomorrow to face Lochee United.

“Although we have a good lead just now, all that can change quickly.

“If you had said at the start of the season we would be in this position we would have bitten your hand off.”

Elsewhere in the Super League, struggling Linlithgow – boosted by the signing of Pollok striker Iain Diack – are at home to Hill Of Beath.

Bonnyrigg, needing a win to try and stay within range of the leaders, host Armadale, while Broxburn, who had a terrific 1-0 win over Linlithgow last week, are in Fife to play Ballingry, while Musselburgh host St Andrews.

Bo’ness have a free week as they await the winners of tomorrow’s Scottish Junior Cup fourth-round match between Girvan and Rutherglen Glencairn.
