GHA will be hoping to make it six of the best as they face Jed Forest at Riverside Park.

The Braidholm side went top of the BT National League Division 1 after a dramatic injury time victory against Marr last Saturday.

And they will be looking to maintain their one hundred per cent start to the season especially with second place Selkirk coming to Braidholm next weekend.

GHA Head Coach Craig Sorbie knows it will be a tough test travelling to the borders.

He said: “Jed are a very good team. They have a lot of experience in their ranks. They have a couple of new players as well.

“They have had a mixed start to the season but it is never easy going down to the borders as it is always a test.

“We have to prepare the way we usually do, look at ourselves first of all. Rectify the mistakes that we made against Marr and then look at Jed and see how we can exploit their weaknesses.

“Hopefully if we stick to our structures and stick to our gameplan then the results will come.”

GHA needed an injury time try from Euan Greer to preserve their winning start to the season as they edged past Marr 35-34.

Despite Marr being down in 11th place in the league and GHA at the top of the table the Ayrshire side almost pulled off the victory.

And Head Coach Craig Sorbie feels it shows that anybody can beat anybody in the National League Division 1.

He said: “It shows that the league is very competitive and that anybody can beat anybody on their given day.

“Marr are not quite the team where their league position would suggest. It was a real tough test for us.

“The boys stuck to their structures well, which paid off with the last minute try to win the game. It was a very difficult game.

“Looking at the last few games that we have played we are scoring a lot of points in the last quarter of the game. That is testimony to the hard work the boys have put in and they are reaping those rewards like against Marr.

“We are top of the table just now but we are only five games in and we are not going to get ahead of ourselves. We will take it each week as it comes. Hopefully the results will come our way as the weeks go on.”
