Mo will arrive in the kingdom sitting second in League One, having cemented their position with a 2-0 home win over Peterhead ahead of Christmas.

Andy Steeves and Blair Lyons hit either side of the break to ensure a comfortable enough 90 minutes for the Links Park side, despite Cammy Ballantyne being sent off in the closing seconds.

All attention now turns to Sunday’s encounter with East Fife.

Stevie Crawford’s side are currently propping up the division as they battle against relegation to the nation’s bottom tier.
