A place in the top three now looks beyond the Canniepairt outfit, who now sit in ninth place in the table with the games quickly running out.

Beating Tranent on Saturday, however, would take ‘Port to within a couple of points of their opponents and John Ovenstone’s men would have two games in hand.

So, climbing the table is certainly possible for the Canniepairt outfit and all at Tayport will be looking to finish the season in as high a position as they can and not let things peter out.

It will have been a difficult week for the players though, as they will have been smarting from the 2-1 defeat against Arniston.

‘Port conceded a dubious first goal, a second half penalty and had three men red carded.

Suspensions and injuries are going to play a big part in team selection this weekend.

Kieran Conway and Daniel Sanchez, for instance, have been on the treatment table of late and their return would be a big bonus for what will be yet another tough assignment for Tayport.

Tranent have won four of their last five league games and their only defeat this year was against table-topping Kennoway.

Kick-off at Forester’s Park is scheduled for 2.30pm
