Lanark United secretary Tam Anderson insists his side still face a great fight to win Central Division 2.
Unbeaten United are three points clear at the top after nine games, but Anderson said that John Brogan’s new look side are far from home and dry.
He said: “ We would like to win the league, but we’re not really that confident.
“Although we are unbeaten at the moment, there are a lot of hard games to come.
“We have played six home games and just three away so far.
“Our next two league games – starting on January 9 – are away from home.”
United play a friendly match at Dalziel Amateurs tonight (Wednesday), kick-off 7pm.
