Har­vey says Glens will not freeze

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page - Murray Spooner

Ruther­glen Glen­cairn gaffer Wil­lie Har­vey says his side will step up to the plate this week­end as they face the league lead­ers at home.

Keith Hogg and his Kil­syth Rangers squad will visit The Cel­sius Sta­dium with hopes of ex­tend­ing the gap at the top of the Su­per First Divi­sion.

The Jan­uary frost wiped out a lot of Ju­nior foot­ball matches around the coun­try on Satur­day, in­clud­ing The Glens’ game with Blan­tyre Vic­to­ria.

But boss Har­vey is con­fi­dent his play­ers won’t freeze when the ta­ble-top­pers come to town as his team reg­u­larly put in a good per­for­mance when they are up against the odds.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to it,” he said. “We en­joy playing teams at the top of the league be­cause it brings the best out of us.

“You just need to look at the last time we played them. We drew 2-2 but we should have taken all three points.

“We led for most of the game but they equalised in the last five min­utes to get a point.

“I’m quite con­fi­dent about it. But Kil­syth’s team hasn’t changed all that much since last season. That ob­vi­ously helps and you can iron things out from the last season.”
