FRASER DUNCAN believes Sauchie's cancelled game at the weekend will not affect the momentum his team have been building.

Sauchie's last game, the 4-1 demolition of Newtongrange Star, made it two wins from two and effectively ended Newtongrange's chances of survival, while simultaneously increasing Sauchie's hopes of beating the drop.

The hosts announced last Saturday's game against Bo'ness United was cancelled due to Storm Dennis with a Valentine's Day poem; however, the Sauchie boss does not think it will hamper form.

He said: "We've got momentum going; six points out of six. The good thing for us is since the turn of the year we haven't been beat so we want to continue that.

"With the Bo'ness game getting cancelled yesterday – there's nothing we could do about it.

"The weather was that extreme it was out of our hands, but it sets us up this week to go to Blackburn for a game we need to go and win so, hopefully, we'll pick up three points."

Despite not playing it was still a good day at the office for the Wee County side as fellow survival hopefuls Dunbar United were beaten by Broxburn which keeps Sauchie a point above them with two less games played.

Duncan continued: "There was a few games played on Saturday and results went our way a wee bit.

"Dunbar got beat off Broxburn, which is great, obviously they've still got two games in hand and they're a point behind us so it was good for them to get beat and makes it more difficult for them."

This weekend, the team will travel to face Blackburn and Duncan is confident the work will be done to ensure the result is positive.

He added: "We'll have a good week's training, make sure we're prepared and ready to go for it.

"Every game's hard in this league but we need to make sure we're in a good position to go and bring back three points."
