Elgin City manager Gavin Price insists strong home form will be vital for his side during the upcoming month.
The Black and Whites kick start a run of four home matches from their next five games with today’s League 2 visit of Queen’s Park, which is followed league matches at home to Cowdenbeath and Annan Athletic and a Scottish Cup second round tie against Whitehill Welfare.
Having lost 3-0 against Stirling Albion in their last outing at Borough Briggs earlier this month, Price is eager for the Moray side to regain their fear factor at home.
Price said: “We have got a good run of games coming up at Borough Briggs in October, and we really need to make our home advantage what it was last season.
“We lost our last home game but when we look over the piece at what we have been like at home, we have been successful.
“With the home support getting behind us we fancy ourselves against anybody in our league at home. Hopefully we can make that count in a big month of home games.”
The Spiders will have Mark Roberts in interim charge, after Gus MacPherson left to become technical director at St Mirren.
City were defeated 4-1 by Clyde at Broadwood last weekend, but having bounced back from their defeat against the Binos with a 3-0 victory over Berwick Rangers earlier this month, Price is looking for another show of resilience.
Price, who has a fully fit squad with the exception of long-term ankle injury absentee Stephen Bronsky, added: “We need to do it again and make sure we get the result out of our system.
“It was a hard game last weekend against a good Clyde side, but we can do better.
“Queen’s Park are a hard working young team which does not concede a lot of goals. They will make life hard for us.
“We need to try and counter that, by trying to play the game on the front foot.”
