GHA ready for Selkirk challenge

GHA return to action on Saturday after a week off as they face Selkirk at Philiphaugh.

The Braidholm side will be looking to pick up where they left off a fortnight ago as they picked up their third league win of the season against Peebles.

However it will be a tough test for the Southsiders as they face a side who are one of the form 
teams in the National League having won four and drawn one of their last five games.

GHA Head Coach Gordon MacPherson is looking to maintain GHA’s improved form.

He said: “Selkirk being a top four side will pose an extremely tough test. 

“They showed the quality of their players when we played them earlier on in the season.

“We are looking forward to it. We have improved but it will be a tough game away from 
home.”

GHA will be looking to put on a better performance than the last time they played Selkirk. The Border side won 45-10 at Braidholm a few months ago but GHA have managed to produce improved displays and results since that first meeting.

Selkirk will be looking to maintain their promotion push which sees them just two points 
behind second place Watsonians.

GHA Head Coach Gordon MacPherson admits the team were embarrassed after their first 
meeting with Selkirk and is expecting to do better this time around.

He said: “We will be hoping for a better performance against Selkirk than when we first met. We have a few players coming back from injury which will strengthen the depth of our squad. 

“We are hoping to prove that we have improved that we are a better side and have shown 
steady improvement since the first three games. We were a little bit embarrassed by the 
scoreline. 

“The last time they got away from us. They have some quality players if you don’t shut them 
down they can cause you some damage. We will be looking to improve on our defence to 
stop that happening.

“We will take a terrific amount of confidence it was the same thing against Biggar. Having 
beaten Peebles it does give you that lift, that confidence. 

“The boys are happier at training it definitely adds to the confidence of the players.”
