Forth Wanderers boss Thomas Devine happy with league position but wants strong run-in

Forth Wanderers gaffer Thomas Devine is eyeing a strong second half of the season for his Conference A side.

Forth are due to play a friendly against Newmains on Wednesday, December 29 at Carluke’s John Cumming Stadium, with some under-20s expected to be drafted in. They are next back in league action at home to Muirkirk Juniors on Saturday, January 8.

"We have nine league games left and we’re sitting seventh,” Devine said. “We’re only two points off fourth so that’s a good account so far. Hopefully we’ll be able to go on abother wee run.

"We’ve got a couple of long term injuries. We had another couple of boys missing for our last game – Drew Murray had an injury and Johnny Cookman had a close contact for Covid – but every squad is going to have these issues.”
