In common with several other East Premier League fixtures, Tayport’s weekend trip to title favourites Sauchie fell victim to the weather.

This was a source of frustration to the on-form ‘Port, who had built up some momentum, with three successive wins, the last two coming in league matches.

John Ovenstone’s side will beback in action tomorrow when they host second-placed Kennoway Star Hearts.

Tayport remain adrift from the main promotion hopefuls, but a home win would inject further belief that ‘Port could get involved in the fight for the two automatic promotion slots.

Ovenstone hopes to have a strong pool from which to select his squad for Saturday’s Fife derby which kicks off at 2.30pm.
