Lowestoft joint-manager Ady Gallagher is quietly optimistic that tonight's trip to Kingstonian will go ahead – thereby avoiding an unwanted hat-trick for the title-chasing Blues.

With last Tuesday's game at Thurrock and Saturday's clash at Wingate and Finchley falling victim to the weather, the fourth-placed Blues, 15 points behind the leaders, are eager for play to be resumed as soon as possible.

'Kingstonian are quite optimistic that the game will go ahead. They say the pitch is in pretty good condition,' said Gallagher.

A marvellous 17-game unbeaten run has seen the Trawlerboys emerge as the Ryman League Premier Division formhorses – a danger to all, despite the fixture backlog which has seen them play six games fewer than leaders Whitehawk.

'Obviously you want to play games but there is no point worrying too much if you don't. We have had a lot of games in a short space of time so it will not hurt the players.'

Having lost to Kingstonian 3-1 at Crown Meadow in January, Lowestoft will be looking to set the record straight.

'They are top opposition, one of those sides that really gets up to play us. It will be a tough game,' said Gallagher.
