Ormiston are chasing their third consecutive league victory when they host Coldstream at Recreation Park this weekend.
The East Lothian outfit’s form has picked up in recent weeks following a catastrophic start to the 2017/18 campaign that saw Richie Weir’s men lose their first ten matches. However, back-to-back wins over Eyemouth United and Burntisland Shipyard has instilled some much-needed confidence to the squad.
“We’ve brought a few new faces in and we’ve also brought Scott Bonar in to help out with the coaching side of things, so I think that’s really helped,” said Weir ahead of tomorrow’s match with the Borders club. “He’s brought in some really good ideas since he came in six weeks ago and I think the players have really responded.
“We’ve actually been really unfortunate in a lot of the games this season, playing reasonably well but just not getting the breaks. These are the things that go against you when you’re down the bottom so I think we’ve been due a wee bit of luck.
“We’ve now got a couple of victories under our belts and we’ll be looking to make that three-in-a-row tomorrow. We know it won’t be easy against Coldstream though.”
Meanwhile, Leith Athletic host Burntisland Shipyard in the first round of the League Cup at Meadowbank 3G.
