BARRY FERGUSON insists that Kelty Hearts will go on the offensive during their date with destiny on Sunday.

The New Central Park side head to Brechin City for the second leg of the League Two play-off final with a slender 2-1 advantage after the first meeting on Tuesday, meaning that they will be promoted to the SPFL for the first time if they avoid defeat.

Ferguson – who revealed Jamie Stevenson, who was replaced by the scorer of the winning goal, Cammy Russell, will miss the game with a hamstring problem – said that he won’t be tempted to try to sit in and defend the lead they have.

Instead, he wants his players to showcase their talents as they try to create a monumental piece of history for the club.

“The pressure’s on us, and it’s on Brechin as well,” he said.

“They’re playing to stay in the SPFL but as I said to our players, we’re playing for a bit of history.

“We’ll go there and we’ll not change the way that we play. We’ll go to win the game; there’s no doubt about it. I’m not going to go there and sit back and try and protect our lead. We’ll go there and we’ll go to win it.”

A crowd of 250 were at New Central Park on Tuesday – the first time in over a year there’s been fans inside the ground – and Ferguson was pleased to have them cheer on his side.

Double that number could be inside Glebe Park to cheer on their opponents, and he noted: “Great, that’s what it’s all about.

“It was strange; it’s been a long 14 months! As you know, this wee place creates a good atmosphere, and there was a lot of faces I’ve not seen for 14 months so it was nice to see them.

“As I said, it’s been tough, and I take my hat off – not just to players at our level – but Premiership players, Championship, League One, League Two. To play in front of no fans, I would struggle; fans create an atmosphere, and it’s been tough for players. It was great to see 250 people in to create a wee bit of an atmosphere.

“I’m sure it would’ve been a full house, and it would’ve been a full house here if we were allowed fans in, but I’m excited about Sunday. I can’t wait; I wish it was tomorrow.

“We’ll go and we’ll make sure we prepare right. We’ll go up to Brechin and we’ll give it our best shot to try and get into the SPFL.”
