Delighted Hawick gaffer Craig Tully believes his team can survive in the Lowland League after watching them collect their first point of the season.

The Albert Park club came from 2-0 down to earn a share of the points, but briefly had taken the lead in the closing stages before conceding just two minutes later.

Tully said: “I thought we were going to win when we came back to take the lead but it wasn’t to be.

“I’m still happy that we’ve finally won a point as we have run teams close since I came here.

“We have players lined up to come in on loan in the new year and I’m hoping we will be picking up a few more points in the coming weeks, and then you just never know.”
