PANMURE manager Ian Gilzean is looking forward to this weekend and the chance of a competitive game, writes Johnston Ralston.

After yet another call off as Glenrothes deemed their pitch unplayable, Ian is hoping the weather will hold for tomorrow’s (Saturday’s) fixture against Lochee United.

He said: “The weather had been horrendous. I think it had rained constantly since Thursday all the way through, so there was no chance of a game.

“But I spoke to Andy Finlay on Monday and he said Laing Park was fine. So hopefully it’ll be OK if there’s not too much rain at the end of the week.

“It’ll be good to get a game. Hopefully we’ll be able to play a couple and put together a good run of games, but like we say every week, there’s not a lot we can do about it.

“We’ll just have to try and get on with it and prepare ourselves the best we can and be ready for the game if it does go ahead.”

The Gowfers have a strong pool to pick from for their game against Lochee. There is also a possibility of seeing a new face, but Ian remained cagey. He said: “It’s all arranged but the paperwork is not done yet. However, if the paperwork gets sorted in time then great, but we’ll just have to wait and see.”

Lochee were good opponents for Panmure last season, but have had mixed results so far this term.

Ian said: “We played them last season and we played really well against them without winning, which was the only disappointing thing about those games.

“But we can go in and know that when our game is right and the players are doing what they are good at we can beat anybody.

“We shouldn’t be scared of anyone. Let them worry about us and how they’ll contain us!”
