Quality continues to count for Melrose

Melrose have been making steady progress in the Premiership, and coach John Dalziel is looking for a good performance against Glasgow Hawks on Saturday.

A win would keep the Greenyards outfit in a strong position in the top four and, after last week’s results, the team in touching distance of second place.

“It’s always good to play at home in front of our own supporters, so everyone is looking forward to another big match,” Dalziel told The Southern.

“I have been very pleased with our performances of late and some of our play has been high quality. The players are focused and trying to improve week on week by working hard at training. There is a good buzz about the club and everyone is determined to keep winning.”

Along the road at Netherdale, Gala and Hawick will be battling it out in what is another big game for both sides.

Down in National One, Selkirk will be looking for their 13th consecutive league win when they travel to face Hillhead Jordanhill. Jed-Forest and Kelso also take to the road, playing Dundee and Biggar respectively, while Peebles host Aberdeen at The Gytes.
