AFTER last week's disappointing result at Whitecraigs, Wanderers will have to play much better to get a result against Strathmore at Fort Matilda tomorrow.

The visitors had a resounding win over Stewartry in their last outing but Wanderers only lost narrowly to Strathmore earlier in the season, 36-27.

The myth that Strathmore do not travel well is not backed up with their away results as they currently sit second in the league.

Wanderers makeshift backs had a poor game last weekend and spurned chances to score and were profligate in their kicking from hand which invariably gifted the opposition territory along with an interception for an easy score.

The forwards, by contrast, had overall a good match with the lineout in particular working well.

McCarron is still not available at full back for tomorrow and Marturano must be a doubt due to picking up an injury last week.

The coaches must be looking to a couple of the 2nd XV backs to be promoted this week.

The 2nd XV travel to Ayrshire to take on the second-placed Kilmarnock. The reverse fixture at Fort Matilda earlier in the year saw Wanderers record a 25-12 victory.

After last week's defeat to table-toppers Hillhead 29-5 in an entertaining match, they will be looking forward to a close match tomorrow.

It is hoped that some of the 3rd XV will manage some game time as their fixture last week was cancelled.

The Ladies 1st XV,  after they inflicted a heavy defeat on Cartha last week, will look to keep up their good form with a win over Annan at home to avenge a poor performance away to them earlier in the season.

The usual large crowd of supporters will be looking for plenty of tries from them. 

Sunday: Micros - 11am-12pm Clydeview Academy; The Ladies 2nd XV are away to Dumfries; U13s at home v Dalziel v Ayr; U14s training at FM; U15s v Bishopton 2pm kick-off at FM; U16S Away to Dalziel 2pm kick-off.
