Selkirk remain unbeaten in the Lowland League this season – but that must have seemed unlikely at half-time at Victoria Park.

A 10th-minute Josh Morris strike was the perfect start for the home side, and although Selkirk hit the post through Phil Addison, they couldn’t make the breakthrough.

In the end, it took them over 60 minutes to equalise, Benjamin Huteau slamming the ball home.

But the Souters were soon in their stride after that and there was no longer any doubt about where the points were going.

Jon McInally gave them the lead with a superb curling free kick, before Addison made sure of the win with a good header.

And Garry O’Connor, who has been a bit of a revelation since joining Selkirk, made it five goals in four games by scoring the fourth with his head in injury time.

Joint second place in the Lowland League is a far cry from their position last year.
