That match was the first of Ovenstone’s tenure, with the defender playing his part on the park.

‘Port will be down to the bare bones squad-wise and assistant boss Steve Kerrigan admits that the midweek games have taken their toll.

“Playing Wednesday, Saturday, Wednesday has been tough, as players have had to play when not 100 per cent fit, as we don’t have enough depth to the squad.

“The midweek games don’t give teams the chance to prepare properly either as the players are coming straight from work and arriving at different times.”

Kerrigan is hoping that solid preparation will allow Tayport to compete tomorrow.

“We’re staying positive. I think we’re still in with a shout of staying in this division, perhaps via the play-off.

“On Saturday, it’ll be eleven against eleven and if we perform to the best of our ability, we can match Kelty and get a positive result.”

Kick-off is 2.30pm.
