Strathspey Thistle manager Ally Munro is urging his players to keep up the good work after they claimed only their second win of the Highland League season last Saturday.

Munro was delighted with both the 2-1 triumph against Turriff United and the battling performance and he’s hoping Thistle take that into this weekend’s home League Cup first-round tie against Huntly.

He said: “We will go with a degree of confidence after taking four points from our last two games, while Huntly have suffered a couple of defeats. It’s a cup tie and anything can happen.”

Munro was even happier as both his side’s first-half goals were scored by his two new signings, former Forres Mechanics forward John Cameron and ex-Nairn County midfielder Ross Naismith.

Munro added: “I wouldn’t have expected anything else of both John and Ross as they are both quality players. I knew they would get us goals and they delivered at the Haughs last weekend. I’m delighted for them but I think there’s more goals to come from the pair of them. Ross Naismith’s delivery from set-pieces, especially from his free kick last weekend but also from corner kicks, will give us an added dimension.

“Confidence is high, the squad is bonding, fitness is high and the boys are buzzing, but each game is different, so we’ll certainly not be taking anything for granted.”
