BEWARE of the last-minute goal snatchers is Ross Jack’s warning to his Elgin City team ahead of this weekend’s vital promotion battle with Queen’s Park.
Like on-form City, the Glasgow side are on a good run or results, with nine wins in their last 12 league games taking them to second in the table.
Elgin boss Jack is also wary after noting Queen’s scoring winning goals in the final minute of the match on three occasions recently, and will have his own team primed to play to the final whistle.
The manager was disappointed that a bumper Borough Briggs midweek crowd of more than 600 didn’t see an Elgin victory on Tuesday, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Clyde.
“It was a fantastic crowd and I hope they are not too upset we didn’t win, and come back again on Saturday,” Ross said.
“We can put on another good show against the boys who are scoring late on. Queen’s Park had another very late winner tonight (Tuesday), and we will need to make sure that doesn’t happen against us on Saturday.
“Whatever happened this week, Saturday was always going to be a massive match so it’s no different now.”
The weekend clash is Division 3’s match of the day between its two form teams. City failed to make it five wins in a row with their midweek stalemate, but are unbeaten in six and in good shape for the Queen’s Park match.
