Ahead of league reconstruction next season, Forth are looking good to achieve a top nine finish which would see them promoted to a higher division.

"If we finish ninth or above we will be playing division two next season which is effectively a promotion,” said Forth boss Thomas Devine.

This Saturday in the league, Forth are at home to Muirkirk Juniors while Lesmahagow visit Maryhill.
