Preston manager David Bingham has admitted to a sense of frustration as his side travel to Vale of Leithen tomorrow for their Lowland League Cup Group A encounter.

The East Lothian side have seen matches against tomorrow’s opponents and Selkirk unable to go ahead due to the state of the pitch at the Pennypit due to the recent heavy rainfall.

Bingham is hoping tomorrow will prove third time lucky for his players as they make the journey down to the Borders in search of returning with their first win of the section.

“There’s not much that could have been done with the extent of rain that we’ve had,” Bingham said. “It’s disappointing because as a player, you want to play at this time of year. Vale are a difficult side to play against. They’ve got a number of players I know of having coached them within a previous role at Tynecastle.

“They’ve had some good results and have a good team spirit, but on our day we can be a match for anybody.”
