Peebles Rovers entertain Ormiston in an East of Scotland first division clash at Whitestone Park on Saturday.

This encounter is no end of the season affair as far as Rovers are concerned.

Indeed it’s a match of great importance as Peebles are gunning for full points. Points that would maintain Rovers joint fourth place spot in the league table.

Talking of his side’s situation, Peebles manager John O’Hara told the Southern: “It would be great to finish the season in fourth position or thereabouts and hopefully we can achieve this.

“Although we got a win we didn’t play particularly well against Burntisland Shipyard last Saturday. We just didn’t turn up in the first half but we rolled up our sleeves in the second half and got the job done.

“During the week however we had performed extremely well against Easthouses Lily in the King Cup. We lost 4-3 but gave Easthouses a game. I am hoping we can put up a show like this against Ormiston.

“We beat Ormiston away from home and I think we have a good chance of pulling off another win on Saturday.”

Rovers are without the suspended Greg Shortreed and Chris Lockhart is unavailable.

Kelso United are at home to Burntisland Shipyard and, for the first time this season Kelso manager Prof Blaikie has the luxury of selecting from a full strength squad.
