KELSO UNITED take on Easthouses Lily in an East of Scotland League first division match at Woodside Park on Saturday.
The Tweedsiders have gone off the boil of late and, according to manager Prof Blaikie, are in dire need of a “reality check”.
He told The Southern: “We were just diabolical in our last game. It was the performance from hell, and performances like this don’t mirror what I am attempting to achieve. It’s my job to get this sorted out though – the buck stops with me.
“We will have to improve a lot if we are to get a result against Easthouses on Saturday, but hopefully we can do this.”
United are without suspended goalkeeper Elliot Turnbull. Damien McInulty and Paul Dumma are also missing.
Peebles Rovers face a seaside trip to tangle with Eyemouth United, while Hawick Royal Albert welcome Ronald Fleming back from suspension for their home meeting with Berwick Rangers Reserves.
In the Lowland League, Vale of Leithen, Selkirk and Gala Fairydean all hit the road, taking on Stirling University, Dalbeattie Star and Threave Rovers respectively.
