FREEZING conditions thwarted Rob Roy gaffer Jimmy Lindsay’s ambitions to get back to winning ways on Saturday.

Rabs were due to take on fellow league contenders Petershill, but a frozen pitch at Adamslie Park forced a postponement.

It was a frustrating cancellation, with the players keen to get back on track after a recent loss against Clydebank, which marked the end of a 10-game unbeaten run.

Lindsay told the Herald: “We really wanted to get back to it as quickly as possible after the Clydebank game. It’s always interesting to see how the players react to a loss, but unfortunately the winter weather kicked in.

“It’s always like this at this time of the year – it’s in the lap of the gods as to which games will go ahead.”

This weekend, weather permitting, Rob Roy are due to travel to play league strugglers Glenafton Athletic.

The Glenafton players, who have only won two league games this season, will be looking to avenge the 7-3 thrashing Rob Roy gave them back in September.

Lindsay said: “We obviously gave them a bit of a drubbing earlier in the year, but no two games are the same and we can’t afford to be complacent.”

Rob Roy are due to take on Glenafton Athletic on Saturday at Loch Park. Kick-off is scheduled for 1.45pm.
