Bank on us for a West cup shock
Harvey believes side can bounce back against leaders
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.
