Without a game last weekend Vale of Leithen return to action on Saturday in facing Spartans at Ainslie Park.

Team boss Mickey Lawson, a one-time Spartans manager, said: “I watched Spartans against Coldstream in the Scottish Cup and they are a strong well organised side.

“There is a good blend of youth and experience in the team and we are going to have to be at our very best to get something out of the game. We will be looking to do this though and we can make it happen.”

“I am pleased with the direction the Vale are heading. There is a lot of hard work to be done as the Lowland League is very competitive but we are slowly getting there and are hoping to finish in a reasonable league position.”

Having made an exit from the Scottish Cup in their last outings, Gala Fairydean Rovers and Selkirk both return to the bread and butter of Lowland League football. Gala travel to face Gretna 2008 and Selkirk are away to Threave Rovers.

Hawick Royal Albert, another Border Scottish Cup casualty, hit the road to tackle table topping Leith Athletic while Peebles Rovers tackle Civil Service Strollers at home.
