Although they are both sitting om seventy-one points, Cove Rangers have two games in hand over their Brora namesakes and the Kincardineshire club must be favourites to clinch the Highland League title.
Both East Kilbride and Cove Rangers have six more league fixtures to play. So far each has lost just one match so they’ve experienced a confidence-boosting, season-long winning habit, which of course the team at the bottom of the SPFL is never able to equal.
Cove Rangers currently have a goal difference of 69; EK stand at 46.
I fancy Cove may make it this year, not least because one of the people watching their game yesterday was FIFA president Gianni Infantino - and he is not without influence!
Cove won again last night (5-2)and that puts them 3 points ahead with a game in hand of Brora. Looks more than likely that it will be them from the HL.
Is anybody at the club watching the upcoming games involving Cove, who only have 7 games left, and East Kilbride who have 8 left and are ten points ahead in their table. Or will it be left until the fat lady starts warming up?
We should have dossier on every player from each side, right down to which hand they use to wipe their ar@e. No surprises is the order of the day - that was part of the key to Paul Martin`s success at Rovers - he did his homework.
