Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors - Mur­ray Spooner

Ruther­glen Glen­cairn man­ager Wil­lie Har­vey ad­mits there were few pos­i­tives in his side’s 4-0 de­feat to Largs This­tle — but be­lieves The Glens can bounce back in the cup this week­end.

The Glens sit sec­ond bot­tom of the Su­per League First Di­vi­sion with­out a win but Wil­lie re­mains pos­i­tive his team have got what it takes to top­ple Cly­de­bank.

He said: “I am very dis­ap­pointed in the play­ers. I felt I was let down by them and we all know we let the fans down.

“We are not ac­cept­ing that kind of per­for­mance. It was just a poor over­all team per­for­mance.

“We know ex­actly where it went wrong but that would mean sin­gling out some play­ers.

“There was a lot of dis­ap­point­ment and anger in the team af­ter the game on Satur­day.

“We had a good train­ing ses­sion this week and we talked about the game. Now we are pre­par­ing for Satur­day.”

Wil­lie said the club were not in a cri­sis de­spite Glen­cairn be­ing the only club in the di­vi­sion with­out a win.

Look­ing for­ward to his side’s West of Scot­land first round cup tie with league lead­ers Cly­de­bank, he said: “It’s a cup tie against a team that haven’t been beaten in the league yet.

“It is a lit­tle respite for the play­ers but it will be a tough chal­lenge. “We’ve not played them be­fore. They’ve got a young side with a lot of play­ers com­ing from U21s.”

Cly­de­bank sit one point clear at the top of the ta­ble go­ing into the game hav­ing only con­ceded two goals.

The Bankies dropped their first points of the sea­son af­ter Rab O’Neil’s goal was can­celled out by a last minute strike from Max Maxwell to se­cure a 1-1 draw for Yoker.

Mean­while, Glen­cairn were drawn to face Neil­ston away in the Scot­tish Ju­nior Cup sec­ond round.
