GHA will hope to return to action as they face Biggar in the National League at Braidholm.

The Southsiders Cup match against Dalziel was postponed due to a frozen pitch last weekend.

They will hope for better weather as they look to get their league campaign back on track after a disappointing defeat against Selkirk a few weeks ago.

GHA captain Andy Henderson believes Biggar’s National League experience will make them difficult opponents.

He said: “They are a tough team and have always been in this league. They are always a tough team to play against.

“We played a pre season game against them a few years ago and we have had a game against them this season as well and they are always difficult but we are keen to get back on track after a disappointing game against Selkirk.”

GHA won the first meeting between the two sides 34-15 at Hartree Mill back in September.

The Braidholm side are sitting in eighth place in the National League just two points behind Peebles above them.

They will be looking to build on their improved home form having won two of their last three home games.

Biggar have won just one of their 12 league games so far this season but GHA Henderson believes they have been unfortunate in some games and will prove to be a stern test.

He said: “We won’t be taking anything for granted: we know Biggar have been unlucky in some of the games not to get anything from them.

“We know it will be a tough match and one we are keen to win.

“Our goal is to build a bit of momentum which will start with a win. We are focused to get a win on Saturday and then to push on from there.

“It is a bit stop start with cup games then league games regardless what competition it is we will try to get some wins and build some confidence from that.”
