GHA will look to get back to winning ways as they face Stewart’s Melville at Inverleith.

The Braidholm side have produced improved performances in the last few games and pushed unbeaten league leaders Boroughmuir all the way before losing 28-15.

GHA are halfway through the National League campaign and have picked up two wins from their nine games.

Head Coach Gordon MacPherson was pleased with the effort his side put in against Boroughmuir last weekend and is aiming to double their win count in the second half of the season.

He said: “We pushed Boroughmuir close last week there was only a point in it deep into the second half.

“What it does prove is we can compete. I think the second half of the season we will be looking to improve and turn some of these close results into victories.

“That is really what our aim is for the second half of the season maybe to double our win count than in the first half of the season.

“I think we are capable of doing that if we get one or two guys back from injury that would give us a little bit more depth. Hopefully we can start to be a bit more clinical when we have possession.”

GHA will be looking to put in a better performance against Stewart’s Melville this time around after suffering a 44-0 defeat at Braidholm on the opening day of the season.

Stewart’s Melville have won their last five games after suffering a slow start to the season.

Last weekend they defeated Watsonians 14-13 to keep their promotion hopes on track.

GHA Head Coach Gordon MacPherson admits his side underestimated the step up in class the last time they met Stewart’s Melville.

He said: “We were a little bit embarrassed against Stewart’s Melville in the first game. I don’t think our players envisaged the step up that it was.

“We have a little bit to prove to ourselves that we aren’t as bad a team that we showed that day.

“They are a good side and are in the top three or four teams in the league.

“It will be a tough game but I think what we have shown in the last few weeks is we can compete with these teams and with a little bit of luck we could sneak a victory against these sides.”
