SAUCHIE boss Fraser Duncan says his players are getting used to that winning feeling and hopes his side can return to playing as soon as possible.

The poor weather have slashed a fixture list that already looked bare due to the festive break and it comes at a poor time as Sauchie were finally finding their form.

Duncan told Advertiser Sport: "The weather's been horrific, it's been brutal.

"Newtongrange [Saturday's opponents] have got a good park, it's a very good pitch but I've been through in Edinburgh and the weather's 10 times worse than what it is through here. We'll just wait until the very last minute."

Duncan continued: "[It's] difficult for us as well because the facilities are all shut, we're left without training facilities so we'll be back to training in car parks. That's the hardest part: keeping boys ticking over.

"There's [also] been so much work done at Beechwood, the place looks beautiful. I can only thank the club and the volunteers for the work they've done."

Thankfully the lack of fixtures has allowed Duncan to get a full squad back from injury.

He added: "Squad wise, we've got some injuries cleared up, we had a bounce game to clear some injuries up. Only person we're waiting on is Alan Comrie, we're waiting on him and we'll take it from there.

"To be fair, the guys have been excellent, they've been first class. Me and the management team are really enjoying working with this squad of players, their attitudes are spot on.

"These boys have got that grit between their teeth and they know what it's like to go and win and they enjoy it and want to keep winning."
