GHA hoping for return to action

GHA will be hoping to finally return to action as they travel to Burnbrae to face the West of
Scotland.

The Braidholm side’s last two games against Hillhead/Jordanhill in the Cup and Greenock
Wanderers in the league have both fell foul to the weather.

And they will be desperately hoping that Saturday’s rearranged league fixture doesn’t follow suit as they look to keep their promotion hopes on track.

GHA captain Andy Henderson feels not having a game in the last fortnight has made the players even more eager.

He said: “We are really looking forward to the game.

“It was a little bit of a surprise that the game last Saturday was called off. The game against
Greenock being postponed has made us even keener to play this one this weekend.

“We had a tough game against the West of Scotland earlier in the season.

“We know we will have to be close to our best this weekend.

“I think they have had a few injuries but they got a win last week and they will have taken
some confidence from that.

“Again it is a really important game and is one we are looking forward to.”

West of Scotland have won their last two league games while GHA have won four of their last five in the league.

GHA will hope to close the gap at the top after falling five points behind Falkirk albeit with two games in hand.

One of which is against the West of Scotland and GHA captain Andy Henderson believes it doesn’t matter that they have games in hand if they don’t win them.

He said: “It is always good to have your points under your belt.

“It is not good to have the games in hand if you lose them. We have to play all the teams around about us so it’s a matter of beating them.

“I don’t think having games in hand really counts for anything. It’s about where you are at
the end of the season where it really counts.”
