Dave Carson is telling his Highland players to widen their game against Gala in a bid to keep their undefeated start to the season going.

The head coach says he is expecting a physical encounter when the Borders outfit travel to Canal Park tomorrow for the National One clash.

The Greens, who were promoted as runners-up in National Two last season, have won both league matches against Cartha Queens Park and Biggar and sit in third place.

Carson says to keep their run going he is looking for his team to play an expansive game and not get sucked into a tight physical encounter.

“The season doesn’t get any easier,” he said.

“Gala beat Cartha but lost their first away game against Stirling.

“They have a big pack of forwards which you expect from a Borders team.

“We need to keep running at these teams and not play into their hands by going in tight."
