ROB Roy gaffer Jimmy Lindsay hopes it will be third time lucky this Saturday – after icy conditions saw his side’s fourth-round Scottish Cup tie cancelled for the second successive weekend.

While the pitch was just about playable, the referee and club chiefs agreed to postpone the game against Rosyth because of ice remaining around Adamslie Park.

Lindsay said: “We were ready to go and the pitch was about 80 per cent good, but the entrances, standing areas and turnstile gates were all icy and you just can’t ask people to come to a football game when it’s like that.”

But the manager is confident that his team can advance in the competition should the game finally go ahead this Saturday.

He said: “We’ve only got Ronnie Hunter out at the moment with a virus – everybody else is match fit and ready to go.

“We’ve not missed any of our training sessions because of the weather and we’re looking pretty sharp.

“It’s the first time the team has gone three weeks without even a friendly game, but everybody is in the same boat at the moment with so much competition for the indoor facilities.”

The game against Rosyth at Adamslie Park is scheduled to kick-off this Saturday at 1.45pm.
