Souters face Star on high

Selkirk hope their improved run of form will still be on track as they entertain Dalbeattie Star at Yarrow Park on Saturday, writes John Slorance.

Manager Stevie Forrest told The Southern: “We have picked up two points in our last two games against good sides, but it could well have been six points.

“Our attitude is good and we are starting to play well. However, Dalbeattie had an excellent win over Edinburgh City last Saturday – City’s first defeat of the season – and Star will be on a high.”
