Weather puts Rob Roy cup game on ice again

ROB Roy fans were left frustrated for the THIRD Saturday in a row as freezing temperatures once again put paid to their team’s progress in the Scottish Cup.

The fourth round match against Rosyth was postponed after the Adamslie Park pitch once more failed an inspection.

Manager Jimmy Lindsay said: “The pitch was nearly there and we were training on it by noon on Saturday.

“Having said that though, the ground still had a bit of frost in it and so the decision to call off the game was correct.”

This Saturday will hopefully see Rabs finally play their long-delayed cup match – with the weather forecast looking promising.

The rescheduled match means that a planned league tie against Beith, where the players would have been looking to consolidate their third place position in the table, will have to be played later in the season.

Lindsay said: “With the fifth-round draw being made on Thursday both ourselves and Rosyth will know who we’ll be playing in the next round if we go through.

“That tie will be played next weekend so hopefully it’ll be a wee while until we get back to league games.

“We’ve also got an away friendly scheduled on Tuesday against Clyde. We need to take the chance to play whenever we can when the weather is like it has been.”

Rob Roy take on Rosyth – weather permitting – at Adamslie Park on Saturday. Kick-off is at 1.45pm.
