“It will be a to­tally dif­fer­ent game,” says Rovers boss

East Kilbride News - - MOTORS -

Al­bion Rovers boss Brian Kerr is wel­com­ing a break from the league – and hopes a Scot­tish Cup win over East Kil­bride can in­spire a good run.

The Coat­bridge out­fit haven’t won a game since the end of Septem­ber, but travel across La­nark­shire hop­ing to spark some life into their sea­son.

Ear­lier in the cam­paign, Kerr’s men en­joyed a con­vinc­ing 5-2 win at K-Park, how­ever, the for­mer Scot­land cap be­lieves it won’t be as com­fort­able a day for Rovers as it was when the sides met in the group stages of the Bet­fred Cup.

“It will be a to­tally dif­fer­ent game from the start of the sea­son,”he told the News.

“We have both had a lot more game time since then and Billy (Stark) will have them well or­gan­ised.”

Rovers have won just one of their last five Scot­tish Cup out­ings but Kerr, who signed ex-EK stars Joao Vic­to­ria and Craig McLeish this sea­son, be­lieves their cup du­ties will be a wel­come re­prieve from their poor run of form in League One.
