Although not having nailed their colours to the mast in the way of winning matches, Selkirk have been knocking at the door and showing promise for new boss Garry O'Connor.

And last Saturday the Yarrow Park outfit notched their second successive victory since the ex-Hibs and Scotland star took over.

Quality signings have been brought by O’Connor in former Dundee United and St Johnstone man David Robertson and Bayan Fenwick who has been with Crystal Palace and Torquay United as well as latest recruit ex-Dundee United and Scotland defender Garry Kenneth.

O’Connor said, “The wins have always been coming and they have now arrived.

“Progress has been made and I am very happy about this. The players have been putting it in at training and now it’s starting to happen for them on the pitch.

“I know what I am after at Selkirk and I am very ambitious to make things really happen for the club. It’s not perfect yet but we are getting there.”

Due to a reshuffle of fixtures due to recent postponements Selkirk have no game on Saturday while Gala Fairydean Rovers take on high flying Stirling University away from home and Vale of Leithen travel to face Gretna 2008.

In the East of Scotland League, Hawick Royal Albert tackle table topping Leith Athletic on the pastures of Netherdale while Peebles Rovers clash with Civil Service Strollers in Edinburgh.
