“Everybody connected with Selkirk is looking forward to the game, and, as players and management, we have done as much as we possibly can at training this week,” said McKinnon. “I will definitely not have to motivate my players because if they are not up for this game then they shouldn’t be playing football.”
Ogilvie, a former Easter Road starlet now in charge of Vale, said: “I’m excited. My players have to go to Selkirk with the right attitude in what is probably one of the biggest games of their footballing lives. I can’t wait for tomorrow to come and, although Vale may be favourites, recent form goes out of the window in a derby like this one.”
Ogilvie has Kerr Dodds back in midfield, but striker Danny Noon misses out because of suspension.
