The Greens are currently riding high in RBS West Regional Division Two, and sit just one point off top spot.

And although the players will not be getting carried away, having trounced Uddingston 43-0 in November at Ardencaple the mood will be confident.

A strong support always makes a difference and supporters are encouraged to make the trip to Lanarkshire for the match (kick off 3pm).
