ANGRY Vale boss Chris Anderson is demanding an improvement from his team after a second demolition in four days.

Following his team's 6-0 defeat at Bonnyrigg Rose in their opening Lowland League match on Saturday, Vale were humbled 5-1 by neighbours Gala Fairydean Rovers midweek.

With the league's defending champions, East Kilbride, arriving at Victoria Park tomorrow Anderson is desperate for a better performance.

He told us: "What I've watched in the past two games simply isn't good enough.

"The Lowland League isn't easy and the boys who are at this club need to realise quickly that they will have to battle for every point.

"East Kilbride are one of the best teams in this league and we are going to have to show a much better desire if we are going to compete with them."

Apart from the injured Ally Smith, who broke his jaw in the Bonnyrigg game, Vale should be close to full strength.

Gala Fairydean Rovers are on the road as they travel to Dalbeattie Star.

Manager Neil Hastings is hopeful of picking up another three points following Tuesday's derby win at Victoria Park.

He said: "Dalbeattie will be a difficult place to go and, as I keep saying, there's no easy games in the Lowland League.

"But we have the players to cause them problems and if we apply ourselves correctly we can game."

In the East of Scotland Peebles Rovers will be looking for better fortune when they head to Fife to face Burntisland Shipyard.

Ryant Bisset's team suffered a 4-1 opening day defeat at Haddington Athletic.
