Cold com­fort

Rutherglen Reformer - - Juniors -

out what was go­ing wrong and in the sec­ond half we got our pass­ing and move­ment go­ing.

“Against Pol­lock in the friendly our pass­ing game wasn’t there but on Satur­day it was. We were play­ing through Yoker at times.”

The re­sult leaves The Glens with only three league wins all sea­son but they have also picked up six draws.

Har­vey has of­ten spo­ken out about the teams’ strug­gle to con­vert chances to goals and re­vealed he would like to bring in a “strong and phys­i­cal” striker to ac­com­pany the speedy men he al­ready has at his dis­posal.

“I’m happy with the mid­field and de­fence at the mo­ment but if I was to bring any­one in it would be an­other big striker. We need some­thing dif­fer­ent.”

He added: “If you look at the ta­ble we’ve drawn six games and we should have won every sin­gle one of them.

“We have missed umpteen chances in those games which have ul­ti­mately cost us points.

“If you add those 18 points we should have got from those draws to the 15 we have al­ready got, we’d be top of the league.”

Glen­cairn visit Har­vey’s old club Blan­tyre Vic­to­ria on Satur­day in an at­tempt to move fur­ther away from the drop zone.

John Gib­son’s side are third from bot­tom in the Su­per First Di­vi­sion.

The Vics have failed to win in their last five games but have pro­gressed to the Scot­tish Ju­nior Cup’s fourth round on penal­ties.

Com­ment­ing on this week­end’s clash, Har­vey said: “They are a good team and I used to man­age them. We beat them 3-0 last time at home but I don’t think the score­line re­flected the game it­self.

“Blan­tyre had a lot of chances in the first half and could have got some­thing out of the game.

“They may be down near the bot­tom of the ta­ble but that makes it worse for us. We should be play­ing teams like Peter­shill and the Cly­de­bank be­cause we seem to re­act dif­fer­ently when we are not the favourites.

“Satur­day is a winnable game but it is also los­able.” • Glen­cairn youth team re­sults: Glen­cairn u14s Blacks 7-1 Busby u14s, Glen­cairn u14s Reds 0-4 Knightswood u14s, Glen­cairn u21s 3-0 Bar­rhead u21s, Arthurlie u19s 2-1 Glen­cairn u19s, Glen­cairn u16s 5-1 Stam­per­land u16s.
