Thought Stirling Uni would be better than this, but looking at last season they also had a slow start - losing their first four games and it was well into September when they drew with Jeanfield and won at Blackburn.

Heriot watt seem to be doing okay at this time of the year, suppose the coaching team are apparently really really good. I am very surprised at Stirling with resources at their disposal, they should be stronger

I was very surprised at how poor stirling were vs Coldstream, how does the herriot twatt team seem tae be doing well outwit term time, I never see them struggling, watched them vs Tranent and they looked a proper side. I hear that the coaching staff are apparently brilliant. am very surprised at stirling, that's coldstream  and inverkeithing and they looked really poor

To be fair it is Stirling's 2s compared to HWU's 1s, and I think they have a connection with Currie Star which might help prior to term time.

I did a comparison a while ago comparing unis % points gained in July-August versus the season as a whole... ranked from Stirling Uni (not much difference) to Edinburgh Uni then Heriot-Watt (some) to Stirling Uni EOS (lots).

Stirling 2s play are a better if not same level as Heriott Twatt 1s, they 2s play 1A on Wed and HWatt play 2A.  Think the partnership is currie star 19s, they cannae compete in EOS. Think The Heriot are playing way above their level, they deserve enormous credit, seem tae play decent fitball and look well organised. Stirling on the otherside lack direction.

Surprise result tonight?

Preston 0-1 Arniston FT

I would say so Arniston haven't had the greatest of starts this season.

Really well done to Arniston went along expecting a big home win. First half Arniston really frustrated Preston and although Easton had to make 3/4 very good saves 2nd half they held on for a big 3 points.

Little over 72hrs prior the clubs had respectively beaten Premier powerhouses Musselburgh and crashed 8-1 at home to Haddington. It certainly surprised almost everyone in the ground.

First half saw Preston on top to begin with but it was even thereafter and the visitors came to the fore as HT approached. They forced a good save for a corner then saw it turned out for a throw-in, and after the long-range chuck was repelled the ball came back in and was stabbed home amongst a melee. To trail was perhaps unfair on Preston but only a touch harsh if so.

Second half was almost all Preston with just an occasional counterattack from the Midlothian men. Much to the frustration of the home support numerous assaults came to nothing more than several sharp saves by the Arniston 'keeper.

Crowd of about 110, including a few in gardens.

Long haul in a 34-game season: but Preston can't afford to drop points like this too often.

They seemed to have a few coaches. One of them spent most of him time high up in the stand - including shouting a lot of advice to their left winger - coming down a few times to pass on tactical observations.

Winnable game next at home to Stirling Uni EOS.
