Following an exit from the South of Scotland Cup at the hands of Civil Service Strollers in their last outing, Selkirk get an early opportunity to gain revenge this weekend.

For the Yarrow Park men are set to cross swords with the Edinburgh outfit again in the Nation Qualifying Cup.

Selkirk will be gunning to turn the tables and talking of matters the Souters team boss Garry O’Connor said: “Hopefully we will get a result on Saturday.

“We will have to stop making basic mistakes and giving away silly goals though. The goals we have been losing have mainly been through our own errors rather than the other side scoring good ones. It’s going to take time however to get used to the system we are playing but I know we will get it right”.

Vale of Leithen travel to face Threave Rovers in a Lowland League clash. Threave are anchored at the bottom of the table with Vale nestling a place above them and Vale vice chairman Stuart Robertson said: “We are a place above Threave but there is a big gap in points. It’s a game we need to win as we really want to improve our league position. I just hope the match goes on as there have been such a lot of games put off recently because of the bad weather.”

In the East of Scotland league, Peebles Rovers entertain Ormiston at Whitestone Park and Hawick Royal Albert are at home to Duns.
