Aiming for the cups, says Ian

PANMURE gaffer Ian Gilzean doesn’t mind having a busy end of season schedule if it means his side is still battling for silverware, writes Johnston Ralston.

However, he will still be looking to get his boys back on the pitch to keep them sharp.

He stated: “Hopefully this week we can get back to playing games. We still have a few cup games to play and hopefully we can get a good run of games together.

“I think we have been quite lucky, if that’s how you want to look at it, because in previous years we’ve been knocked out of cups and only had league games to play.

“If we can manage to stay in the cups we are still involved in then obviously we’ll have to play a few midweek games, but we want to be involved and it’s good to stay involved in the latter stages of cups.

“If you’re on a run the games look after themselves.”

At the moment it is not clear if Saturday’s scheduled game against Hill of Beath Hawthorne will go ahead at Keirs Park.

The boss went on: “This week I don’t know. It’s a bit difficult. We don’t have it as bad in Carnoustie as everyone else is getting it.

“We’ll just have to give it a couple of days and wait and see what the weather is like.

“We’ll go there with a lot of confidence after the last few games, especially the Lochee Harp and Linlithgow Rose fixtures where we put in good performances.

“We can go there and have nothing to fear. I’ve always said we need to let other teams worry about containing us rather than us worrying about containing them. We’ve got some great attacking options in our team.”

Fortunately for Ian he has a full roster to choose from.
