Carson wary of Kelso backlash against Highland in National One


By Andrew Henderson


Dave Carson does not expect Kelso to make things easy for Highland tomorrow after being on the receiving end of a hammering last time out.

Kelso shipped 98 points to Cartha Queens Park, a side that the Greens have already beaten themselves earlier this season.

A late decision will be made on Rob Eatough's fitness ahead of Highland's National One match against Kelso.

The head coach expects the magnitude of that defeat to play on the minds of their hosts in the Scottish Borders tomorrow, but he thinks they will be desperate to avoid a repeat result.

“I would hope they will be fragile,” Carson said.

“That’s massive, in any division 98 points is a lot of points. Sometimes you wonder if there’s even time to score that many points.

“It will go one way or the other, they will either be struggling after that or they will come back with a bang, not wanting that to happen again.

“I have no idea what sort of team they put out but I can’t imagine it was anywhere near their strongest first team with a result like that, not a chance.

“We’ll just prepare this week like we have done all season. We haven’t been in the borders for a long time to play sides like this, so we’ll expect a torrid time down there.”
