Fate in Burgh’s hands

Rutherglen Reformer - - Juniors -

Ruther­glen Burgh’s fate is firmly in their own hands af­ter an im­pres­sive 6-1 vic­tory over 10-man Air­drie Al­bion.

The new club are among the 60 teams cur­rently bat­tling it out in their re­spec­tive groups.

And their fi­nal po­si­tion in their mini ta­ble of four will de­ter­mine what league they will play in this sea­son.

The Burgh are two points be­hind this week­end’s op­po­nents Weir Recre­ation in what is the fi­nal group game and the leader af­ter Sun­day will play in the Cham­pi­onship 1 league.

Con­fi­dence will be high go­ing into that match af­ter dis­man­tling Air­drie who were a man down early on.

John Robb was one-on-one with the keeper who han­dled the ball out­side the box be­fore be­ing shown a red card.

The re­sult­ing free-kick saw Robb rat­tle the cross­bar from 25 yards.

How­ever, Craig Fel­lows made no mis­take as he gave his team the lead be­fore Dar­ren Spald­ing volleyed in the se­cond goal be­fore the break and struck again for the third.

Air­drie hit back with a goal against the run of play but two goals from sub Peter Dal­las and Craig Fel­lows’ef­fort was enough to seal the points.
