DAVID CROSS is convinced Sauchie will finally get back to winning ways as they prepare to face Tynecastle on Saturday.

The Reds haven't won since defeating promotion chasers Dundonald Bluebell in November and their hopes of ending that drought were put on hold for another week after their clash with Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale was postponed due to the weather.

However, the former Stirling Albion man believes the side will get their campaign back on track sooner rather than later, starting with Saturday's clash.

The 23-year-old told Advertiser Sport: "We have been wanting to put some points on the board as the league table isn't looking too great just now.

"We need some games to try and put it right and it's been frustrating.

"The cancellations have been a bit of a pain, to be honest. Especially with the run of form that we have been on.

"As soon as we get some points on the board, I am sure we will kick on and get back on track."

Cross scored his first goal in Sauchie's win 2-1 win over the Edinburgh side in September.

The Reds faced a late onslaught from the capital outfit that day and the defender is expecting a similar challenge on Saturday.

He said: "We didn't play very well at all and we're still trying to find our feet in as a team. It was a really scrappy game and actually my first goal for the club.

"It was a tough game and really windy and really a game of two halves. We were up against in the last part of the game and managed to see it through.

"I would expect us to be able to see them off at home.

"Everybody in this league is tough no matter who you play.

"I would expect a bit of a battle and if we match the effort I am sure we will pull through in the end."
