Star Tracker stand­ings

East Kilbride News - - SPORTS -

There was lit­tle change in the Star Tracker stand­ings this week as leader Craig Mal­colm ex­tended his lead at the top by a point to open up a 35-point gap over Chris Ersk­ine.

Mal­colm played the full 90 min­utes in Stran­raer’s 2-1 win over Air­drieo­ni­ans on Satur­day, but his two ap­pear­ance points were halved af­ter he picked up a book­ing.

How­ever, near­est ri­val Chris Ersk­ine couldn’t cap­i­talise as Partick This­tle lost 2-0 to Rangers at Ibrox.

Ersk­ine came on as a 51st minute sub­sti­tute, but his soli­tary point for the day was can­celled out by a book­ing, keep­ing him on 67 points. It leaves Mal­colm

in a com­mand­ing po­si­tion to pick up our Star Tracker prize of a £100 gift card from EK East Kilbride.

Mean­while, the bat­tle for third spot is hot­ting up af­ter fourth-place Mark McGuigan scored in Stran­raer’s vic­tory. It takes the striker to three goals for the sea­son and, cou­pled with his ap­pear­ance points, he earned six points in to­tal to move within three of their place Jamie Long­worth.

Long­worth earned a point for a sub­sti­tute ap­pear­ance in Al­loa’s 6-1 thrash­ing of Brechin, while his goal­keeper Neil Parry scored zero af­ter his goal con­ces­sion can­celled out his ap­pear­ance points. Parry re­mains fifth, well be­hind McGuigan and 14 points clear of sec­ond bot­tom Fraser Kerr.
