Time to make history

The Raydale Park side started this season not too dissimilar to how they ended the last. But a manager switch last month, where Michael McIndoe entered the-hot-seat, propelled the side to a five-game winning run. And now The Anvils find themselves in a completely different position to where they were just over a month ago.

WIN STREAK . . . Gretna went on a five game winning run after appointing Michael McIndoe as their new boss

Despite the winning streak ending to East Stirlingshire last time out, McIndoe’s squad will be full of confidence ahead of tomorrow’s game.

Opponents Drumchapel beat Nairn 3-1 in the first round, in the Highlands, and they will be full of belief as they make the journey south to Raydale Park.

Ahead of the match, Gretna assistant manager Robbie Park said: “We have had a good week of training, allowing us to re-assess where we are as a squad and what we need to do to get to where we want to be.

“The players have worked hard and the management staff have spent a lot of time analysing and organising little details that will help improve our overall play.

“We look forward to welcoming Drumchapel, a well known club who have produced some fantastic players in years gone past.

“We will look to continue our positivity of recent weeks, and hope to see many supporters at Raydale to cheer on the lads.”

Kick-off at Raydale Park is at 3 pm, tickets are available on Fanbase now.
