Following midweek encounters, Selkirk, Gala Fairydean Rovers and Vale of Leithen are poised to return to Saturday action.
Selkirk and Gala face up to each other at Yarrow Park in a derby clash that has all the makings of being a thrilling affair.
Expressing his views on the forthcoming duel between the two old rivals, Souters manager Steve Forrest told The Southern: “After getting the season off to a great start, we stumbled against Edinburgh City and BSC Glasgow, but we have a side that can pick themselves up.
“It will be a tricky game against Gala – they are a very decent team, but they don’t like playing on grass.
“We had a big win over them early last season, but towards the end they beat us. However, our team on that occasion was mainly made up of trialists and it will be a completely different Selkirk side that Gala will play on Saturday.”
Fairydean boss Steven Noble said: “Selkirk have a few new players, such as Gary O’Connor.
“They have had some good results, seem to be a good side and no doubt will fancy themselves against us.
“We will have to knuckle down, then get a result, but I have a squad that is capable of doing this.”
Vale of Leithen take on Gretna 2008 at Victoria Park.
Talking of his side’s current situation, Vale team boss Mark Lamb told us: “Considering we had only a squad of 11, it was great to get a draw against Dalbeattie Star last Saturday.
“It was a game we came close to winning though as we were a goal up until Dalbeattie got a last-minute equaliser. Our form is improving, but we are a young side and will take a few knocks during the season, but we will get there.”
Included in the Vale squad for their meeting with Gretna is Ian Little.
Little, 40, who scored a goal against Dalbeattie Star, was manager of Berwick Rangers when Lamb was team boss of the Berwick reserves.
Little is helping the Vale out as a player, as well as doing some coaching.
Hawick Royal Albert are minus the suspended Michael McKenzie for their home meeting with Burntisland Shipyard.
