HAWICK coach Phil Leck insist the Greens will battle to the very end in their quest for Premier One survival, writes Gavin Gibbon.

And as they prepare to go in search of a massive bonus point win at Myreside this aftternoon, he said: “It’s a big ask but it won’t be from the lack of trying. We won’t go down fighting like lambs, we’ll be fighting like wolves.”

Nothing less than bonus point victories against Watsonians and Jed-Forest will do for the Greens in their two remaining matches.

But after an initial draw against Stewart’s-Melville and defeat to Heriot’s earlier in the month, even that might not be enough to retain their spot in Prem One.

“I’m disappointed that we’re in the position we are because Stewart’s-Melville and Heriot’s were games we should have won and I would have liked our destiny to have been in our own hands,” said Leck.

“We’ve made it hard for ourselves and we need somebody else to help us.”

However, the proud Englishman has faith in his side, and after watching them record an emphatic win over Melrose last week, remains confident they are up to the task.

He added: “Nobody expects to lose any more and we go out in every single game to win. The progress has been steady and we’ve won 11 out of 14 games so it’s not all doom and gloom.

“The competition is still very much there to play for. We just need to make sure we do our job first.”
