Kennoway Star Hearts manager Alex Davidson says his players face one of their hardest games of the season this weekend.

With his side in fine form after seven wins out of their last eight games, including Saturday’s impressive 4-0 win away at Lochore Welfare, they will travel to face Forfar West End, who Davidson says impressed him when the sides met in August.

“It’ll be a very tough match,” he said.

“Even though we beat them 3-1 last time, the score flattered us, if I’m being honest.

“I think they’ve been the best footballing side in this league that we’ve played against.

“In a couple of the games that we lost, it was long balls that did for us, but Forfar don’t play like that.”

Davidson was pleased his side didn’t concede at the weekend in what proved to be a comfortable win. He said: “We were totally in control. I’m very happy to have kept a clean sheet.

“We’ve given away a few silly goals recently, so a clean sheet was pleasing.”

After last week’s home league match with Newburgh was called off because of a waterlogged pitch, Thornton Hibs face a tricky away fixture to Luncarty, while Glenrothes follow up last week’s excellent 3-2 away victory over Broughty Athletic with a home game versus Pumpherston. All matches kick off at 2.15 p.m.
