East Kilbride Thistle boss Iain Diack admits there is a worry of a fixtures pile-up, but says the club are working hard to fix pitch problems.

Diack says a problem corner of the Showpark pitch holds water and there was no way their West Of Scotland League Conference C game against Port Glasgow could be played on Saturday.

With two games already needing to be rescheduled, Diack says there might be an issue with fitting them in.

However, he hopes Saturday’s derby game at Thorniewood on their also problematic Robertson Park goes ahead.

Diack said: “Our pitch notoriously holds water at the bottom corner and the club are trying to sort it, but it’s one of those where you can only do so much work and it costs money as well.

“It’s a slow process, but they’re trying to get it sorted. I was over at the park on Saturday and it wasn’t playable, but it’s one of those things, unfortunately.

“It’s quite frustrating because we didn’t have a game last week either, and with the game being postponed on Saturday that’s two weeks without a game.

“We’re in the smallest Conference so we’ve only got something like eight home games anyway, and once the weather clears up it will be just like it always is.

“We’ll need to play Saturday-Wednesday probably as soon as the light nights start to come back in, just like it was in the juniors, unless we can get a run of games on the pitch.”

Meanwhile, Diack says he's not concerned that Jags are bottom of their league.

After their game with Glasgow Perthshire was called off, the Jags were leapfrogged in Conference C.

He said: “I’m not really looking at the league table at the minute.

“We’ve played three games, we’ve got one point but in reality it should probably be three..

“Every single game has been very competitive. We need to start taking our chances but we are creating, which is the positive.

“We just have to tighten up a bit at the back and start taking our chances.”
