Stuart Neave is now fully concentrated on lifting his Inverleith squad off the bottom of hockey’s Division One.

And the coach hopes regaining the Scottish indoor hockey title will act as a spur.

The Edinburgh-based side have only earned one point from their ten games since being promoted from Division Two and trail second-bottom Uddingston by six points.

Neave’s men visit Edinburgh University on Saturday (Peffermill 4pm) with the students fifth in the table with 13 points from ten games.

Neave said: “I was absolutely delighted with the team’s performance throughout the (indoor) season. Now we know we have a different challenge.”

At the other end of the table, Grange have 29 points from 11 fixtures and hold a six-point lead over second-placed Kelburne but the Edinburgh side have played a game more.

On Saturday, they visit third-placed Grove Menzieshill, who have 21 points from ten outings.
