Today we go into our last home game of the season with the first of two upcoming games with Fort William. We’ve not beaten Fort over the last three games with two draws at Claggan Park and a defeat here last season.

Tomorrow we go up against our old Assistant Manager Steve Dolan when we travel to Banff to face Deveronvale.

They were on the end of a four-nil home defeat to Keith last week. Dippy will want to bounce back from that defeat and make it hard for us and we’ll be looking to do the exact same following our loss to Formartine. He’ll be seeing it as a chance to gain points as are we.

In terms of league positions, they’re two places above us, the performances over the last four months from ourselves have been good and as we go along we seem to have the odd blip and we could say that about Saturday’s defeat at Formartine.

We should now have Murray McCulloch fully fit coming back into this game, we didn’t want to risk him last week. He was happy to go on the bench and go through the warm-up so hopefully he’s showing no signs of injury to come into the squad. Alexander Thoirs will be back too so that could give us another couple of options and hopefully Ian Cruickshank is fit.

We’ve had Connor Brian back into the team over the last two games and he’s benefited from having regular football this season on loan to Rothes.  We were discussing on the bench on Saturday how he came through the first half with pass marks and did well. He was up against a good player in Scott Barbour and handled him well. You could see when he came off the bench at Brora last midweek he looked very composed and we’ve been happy with his since he returned to the club.

From a year ago to now you can see the improvement from his debut almost a year ago at Buckie. The loan had done him the world of good playing football every week and he’s gained experience from that playing in the Highland League. It’ll have helped Rothes but at the same time it helped us.

For the second game running we face one of the title contenders with a trip to my old club Formartine United.

We showed on Wednesday if you go into a game with the right attitude like we did against Brora, Wick and Fraserburgh we can compete with the teams at the other end of the league.  We were able to keep our shape and play with a bit of a football brain about us. It’ll be a tricky game on Saturday, they’re going for the title but anything’s possible and we’ll go there looking to win like we did last season.…

We now head into another home game this evening against a Lossiemouth side which beat us two-nil on their own patch back in early September. Charlie Charlesworth’s side will be looking to build on their second half display at Fort William where they came from two nil down to take a share of the points.

I was impressed with them through at Lossie and they broke well on the counter attack, they were quick and they were sharp and gave us a tough game.…

This past Monday, my Assistant Manager Steven Dolan was appointed the new Deveronvale manager. People tell me I should shut up sometimes and I actually said to Steve when the job became available “why don’t you go for it?” and after I said it I kind of thought I shouldn’t have.…
