Bo’ness United fans should not expect their favourites to rack up another 7-0 demolition job tomorrow (Saturday) when the side travels to face Bonnyrigg Rose.

Coach Allan McGonigal said his squad had perhaps flattered to deceive with the hammering they handed out to Sauchie last Saturday and warned it was far too early to make predictions about how the season will turn out.

He said: ‘‘We have to keep our feet on the ground, that’s only one game from a long season and there will no doubt be twists and turns along the way.

‘‘Of course we want to win every game and the initial signs are encouraging.

‘‘We were able to move the ball much more freely against Sauchie than Camelon as the playing surface was much better.

‘‘It’s worth pointing out, though, that Sauchie were a bit under-strength with key players having left in the close season.

‘‘Still, we can travel to Bonnyrigg this weekend with confidence but knowing that they have a decent squad and that we face a difficult game.’’

Missing tomorrow will be Andy Scott, who is taking a break after working flat out at the Commonwealth Games and Ross Campbell who is attending a wedding.
