ANDREW Greig says positive results against two teams considered heavyweights in the Highland League should give Nairn County confidence of having a successful season.

Nairn County remain undefeated this season, but are also looking for the first win of the campaign after a 2–2 draw with Rothes at Station Park.

It followed up a 1–1 draw on the opening day of the season against Banks O’Dee in Aberdeen, in a match where they had chances to win both games.

Greig (29) says despite two draws in their first two games, there is confidence in the camp that they can have a successful season in the Highland League.

“The results were encouraging, especially with the fact that we could have won both games,” he said.

“There seems to be a lot of belief in the squad which is good to see and there have been good performances.

“But it still has only been two draws and we have to turn draws into wins.

“We need to keep working hard to get those wins.”

Nairn County will be looking for the first win of the season when they welcome Forres Mechanics to Station Park on Saturday.

Forres started their campaign off with a 4–0 win against Strathspey Thistle.

But they lost 1–0 against Brechin City at Mosset Park last weekend.

Forres had a disappointing campaign last season when they finished in 12th place.

But Greig believes Forres will be a tougher prospect this term and says Nairn will have to be at their best to come out on top.

“Forres have had a big changeover in boys and it will be a tough game.

“But it is a game which we think we can win.”

Greig is also enjoying his time at the club since joining in January after signing from Formartine United.

“It has been great, the players are a great group of lads, and I am looking forward to continuing my time at the club.”
