Yoker co-manager Tommy Montgomery reckons Saturday’s postponement against Newmains United could be a blessing in disguise for his side as they look to maintain their perfect start in League Two.

Following their 2-1 win away to Lugar Boswell Thistle on the opening day and the 3-1 home win over Vale of Clyde, the Whe Ho were set to travel to Victoria Park in Wishaw at the weekend in an attempt to make it three from three.

However, with asbestos found at the Newmains clubhouse, the decision was rightly taken to abandon the match.

And while Montgomery admits both himself and fellow manager Peter McKenna were frustrated not to get the chance to build on their momentum, he admits it could perhaps have been a blessing in disguise with a number of key players suffering from slight niggles.

“It was definitely frustrating,” the gaffer told Post Sport. “We have been able to get off to a good start with a few decent results so we were hoping to build on that and keep the momentum going. 

“In saying that, though, we had picked up a couple of injuries in our last match so the break actually let some of our boys have a bit of recovery time and will make sure they come back ready to go. You never want to see a match postponed for any reason, but it’s a blessing in disguise perhaps.”
