Goalkeeper Thomas McHale says Elgin City will be ready to go the extra mile to ensure games are played – even if means travelling individually to their league opener at Stranraer.
There are suggestions lower league clubs will be advised to avoid using team buses to travel to games if they are not carrying out regular Covid-19 testing.
Players would instead have to travel independently to and from games, with Elgin beginning their league campaign with a 550-mile round trip to Stranraer on October 17.
McHale said: “It would not be ideal for games such as Stranraer away, but in our current situation we are willing to do anything just to play a game of football and experience that little bit of normality.
“Although we might be travelling down by ourselves, we would still have a job to do when we get there.
“I know we’d all go down there and do that whether we are travelling together on the team bus or individually.
“It is a weird time for everyone in every aspect of life.
“In terms of football, we dealing with it as best as we can.
“Everyone is following the protocols and the big thing now is whether the fans will be allowed back in.
“The main reason we all play football is for that feeling of playing in front of fans and we want to have that atmosphere back as soon as possible.
“If we follow the protocols and do everything we can to stop the virus spreading, I think that will come sooner rather than later.”
McHale’s side take on Caley Thistle for the second Saturday in a row, having lost 7-3 at Borough Briggs to John Robertson’s side last weekend.
He said: “Hopefully we can make amends after last week.
“It was an embarrassing scoreline.
“We were in the game for a long period, but let ourselves down towards the end but this is a chance for us to go to Inverness and put things right.
“We’ve got our opening Betfred Cup game next weekend (against Stirling Albion) and then the league starts in a fortnight.
“We were in a situation where we didn’t know what was going to happen so it is great to be back playing.
“We have kept the majority of the squad together, which is good because we enjoyed some success last season.”
