Rory Cross insists Highland have already banished Saturday’s big match postponement from their minds ahead of a return to action at Lasswade.

Wintry weather put paid to what would have been a hugely significant afternoon for the National Two promotion-chasers away to nearest challengers Stewart’s Melville.

National League Cup progress will determine rescheduling of the crucial fixture, now destined to be even more climactic in the season, but Highland co-captain Cross is unconcerned by likely dates.

The Canal Park club’s outside centre knows success this season has been built on steely focus on the next match.

Cross admitted: “It was disappointing not to play because we have a very strong team at the moment.

“We’d been building towards the Stewart’s Melville game quite nicely.

“But it was quite dangerous to travel, so we just park that and move on. Key to our success this season has been not looking beyond the next match and that focus has served us well.”
