10 THINGS WE LEARNED ABOUT THE BT PREMIERSHIP THIS WEEKEND (ROUND 5)

  • Ayr have the bottle to win the championship.

 

  • Melrose are fallible, just like everyone else.

 

  • It just does not seem to be working for Heriot’s this season – reinforcements on the way?

 

  • With a solid foundation and a provident approach to the pro draft, Hawks are serious contenders.

 

  • Challenging times for Ben Cairns at Currie – potential does not win games.

 

  • Goal kickers do – as Joe Helps proved for Watsonians on Saturday.

 

  • It has taken a while but Stirling have at last shown what they are capable of when they hit their straps. Pity David Adamson missed it!

 

  • Gala will play an open game even when things are not going their way.

 

  • Hawick did what they needed to do. There may be some life in the old green dog yet.

 

  • Grant McConnell put down a marker for Boroughmuir – but as coach Peter Wright well knows, when you are living on the edge, penalties and yellow cards kill.
