Having earned a fine cup win away to Culter, Tayport now turn their attention back to East Premier League business with a short trip to Glenesk Park to face Dundee Violet.

It will be a third consecutive away match for ’Port and Dave Baikie’s troops will be looking to make it three wins on the bounce as they bid to climb the table and stay involved in the race for promotion.

However, Glenesk has been a tough venue for Tayport in the past and a tight contest looks to be on the cards.

Alan Tulleth, Grant Lawson, Gary Sutherland and Kevin Milne were on song at Crombie Park and if that attacking display can be replicated, Tayport would be confident of victory.

Milne’s involvement against Culter ended prematurely when he was red-carded for a second caution.

Frustratingly, it was the striker’s first game back after a two-match ban.

Ryan Suttie also made his comeback from suspension last week but only as a late substitute.

He will be looking to reclaim a starting jersey against Violet.

Connaire Connelly, another player under suspension will be available for selection, as will Aaron Kane who missed out last week as he was cup-tied.

Violet currently sit in eleventh place in the table, having taken 21 points from 16 matches.

They have lost both of the league matches they have played in 2015, going down 3-2 to Montrose Roselea and 3-0 to Arniston Rangers.
