Edinburgh University head coach Dorian Ogunro is anticipating an entertaining game when Garry O’Connor’s Selkirk arrive at East Peffermill as part of the Groundhop UK weekend.

Ogunro is hoping for more of the same after Uni’s 5-0 midweek rout of Whitehill.

“It’s usually a really high-scoring game, which I’d love if we win!” he laughed.

“It’ll be a good game. I know Garry was down watching us on Wednesday so they’ll be prepared.

“I’m never over-confident, but if we can approach it with a similar attitude and execution of performance, we’ll have a great chance.”

A Sunday noon kick-off may not be ideal with a team full of students, and there’s the added distraction of the Scottish League Cup final the same day.

“I was speaking to Garry and he was saying he wants to be through for the Hibs game!” joked Ogunro.

“I think everyone’s desperate to go and see the final, but our game should be a good event.”

Whitehill host Gala Fairydean Rovers at 11am on the Saturday without Bryan Young, Nikki Murray and Darren McGlashan through suspension.

Spartans take on Stirling University at 5.00pm and Preston Athletic are at home to Threave Rovers at 2.00pm.
