Greig wary of Lanark’s new boss “bounce”

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Sports -

Gart­cairn boss Davie Greig has urged his play­ers to be wary of a much-im­proved Lanark side boosted by their “new man­ager bounce.”

The Cairn boss is­sued the warn­ing as they pre­pare for a trip to Moor Park this week­end — with new gaffer Paul Burns en­joy­ing a derby-day vic­tory over Car­luke in his first game last week.

De­spite a slow start to the sea­son from their op­po­nents this Satur­day, gaffer Greig be­lieves they will be a dif­fer­ent propo­si­tion un­der Burns’ helm.

“Lanark won’t be happy with start they’ve had, but they have changed things around now,” he told the Ad­ver­tiser.

“Paul Burns has come in and they seem to have im­proved.

“When there is a change teams can en­joy a bit of a lift. There al­ways seems to be a new­man­ager bounce.

“He was un­beaten while he was in care­taker charge, then won his first of­fi­cial game last week.

“So we can’t be com­pla­cent. We are un­der no il­lu­sions. They will test us.”

Greig be­lieves that the Cen­tral Di­vi­sion Dis­trict Two lead­ers will be with­out skip­per Kevin Ross again for the trip across La­nark­shire, and stated striker Gary Ar­buckle will be as­sessed dur­ing the week.
