GOLSPIE Sutherland manager Sam Mackay is looking for his team to continue firing on all cylinders at leaders Halkirk United tomorrow after their ruthless form in front of goal.
The defending champions have been in devastating form in recent games scoring 22 goals in their four league games.
It included a resounding 8–1 win over Orkney, thrashing Bonar Bridge 9–0 and strolling to a 5–1 win over Nairn County A last week as well as a 4–4 draw with Inverness Athletic.
Liam Bremner has been on fire having scored 16 goals in the league as well as two in cup competitions.
Mackay says after dropping points on the opening day to Inverness Athletic, they have shifted up a gear in the defence of their title.
“We have hit a bit of form now after the draw at the start of the season with Inverness,” he said.
“Liam is the best striker in the league at the moment and everything he touches seems to be finding the net.
“He is causing teams a lot of problems and is really enjoying his football and I couldn’t ask for more the way he has started the season.”
Mackay expects league leaders Halkirk United to provide a sterner test than they have faced in recent weeks in the league.
But he is confident they can return from Morrison Park with all three points.
“Halkirk have had a great start to the season and we have a huge amount of respect for them.
“But we are going up there looking for the three points.
“Everything is working out well for us at the moment, we are scoring lots of goals but we are not conceding many either.
“But I have told the boys it is important to keep to the task in hand and not get carried away with results.
“We are under no illusions that Halkirk United will be a tough game.”
Mackay says he is expecting some players to return to the squad for tomorrow’s clash in west Caithness which he says will give him a welcome selection headache.
