IN-FORM Irvine Meadow take on Kirkintilloch Rob Roy this weekend in the West of Scotland Premiership after their game with Cumnock on Saturday was postponed.

Meadow manager Brian McGinty spoke of his disappointment that the game was cancelled but insists its part of junior football at this time of year.

He said: “When you’re on a good run of form you want the games to keep coming and keep that winning momentum going. “Atthe same time Cumnock have been on a poor run of form recently so we felt it was an ideal time to play them, but it wasn’t to be with the frozen pitch. “We gave the players a day off on Saturday to rest up and we have a friendly with Ardeer tonight (Tuesday) and we have training again on Thursday night so the players should be ready for Saturday’s game.” The North Ayrshire side have exited all the cup competitions for this season already. However, they are on  a good run of form having won six of their last seven games which has helped move them up to fourth in the league table. Although McGinty knows that this weekends’ trip to Kirkintilloch will be a tough test for his side and to stay in the league is still the club’s main aim. He said: “We always have the attitude of taking one game at a time and this weekend’s game will be no different. “Any points we get between now and the end of the season will be a big help to keep the club in the league for next season. “For the club as a whole the last few years have been a really low period, but I believe we are a year ahead of schedule from where we were aiming to be.”
