Carson rejects idea of Highland walkover against Boroughmuir in Edinburgh
Highland Rugby Club head coach Dave Carson expects Boroughmuir to come out swinging in their National One match tomorrow.
The Super6 amateur side have struggled in their debut season, sitting in a relegation spot with six games left to play.
They still have every chance of turning their predicament around though, as they are within 15 points of Ayr and Kelso above them with a game in hand.
Highland meanwhile are playing for pride, trying to finish as high up the table as possible, but even as favourites they will have to focus to contend with a side fighting for survival.
“You wouldn’t expect a Super6 side to be so low down,” Carson admitted.
“They’ve got plenty of time to save themselves, but every point is going to be important for them.
“It’s not going to be a walkover for us whatsoever. “Going there, they can stay up quite easily, so they will be fighting like a team going for promotion. It’s up to us to combat that.
“We’re going to have to work really hard to get a result, we’ll have to keep them at bay in the first half and then wear them down in the second to get the scores that we need.”
