Kennoway Star Hearts boss Alex Davidson expects teams at the top end of the table to drop points in the run towards the end of the season.
Davidson saw his side move in to second place in the table with a 2-1 victory at Newburgh and admits KSH will be looking at sides round about them in the table to take points off each other as they make a bid for automatic promotion from the McBookie.Com North Division.
“All those teams need to play each other and it’s such a strong, competitive league that I can’t see any team running away with it.
“Looking at the teams alongside us in the table, those are the games that we need to win. We’ve slipped up a little this season by dropping points to the teams in the lower half of the league which may come back to hurt us at the end of the season.”
Saturday’s win leaves KSH unbeaten in nine games, which the boss puts down to a team spirit which he says was lacking at the start of season, and they will look to take that run into double figures with a trip to Scone Thistle this Saturday.
“When you’re on a run like this everybody enjoys playing and that breeds confidence on the pitch,” he said.
