Cairn are now on a roll

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Reader Travel -

Gart­cairn con­tin­ued their phe­nom­e­nal start to the sea­son with a 2-0 win over league ri­vals Ar­drossan Win­ton Rovers.

Cairn are now 10 games un­beaten thanks to late goals from David Hep­burn and Kevin Ross.

The Air­drie side sit six points clear of Shotts and Ar­drossan at the top of the ta­ble.

After the game, gaf­fer Jamie McKen­zie said:“Ar­drossan are a re­ally good side.

“I don’t think many teams will come here and win this sea­son.

“I said to the boys at half-time that the first goal would be hugely im­por­tant and it turned out that way.

“It set­tled us and we started pass­ing the ball a lot bet­ter.

“It was through that pass­ing that we won the penalty which sealed the game for us.”

McKen­zie praised the hosts for their per­for­mance too but was pleased with how his side adapted to the threat.

He added:“Ar­drossan re­ally took the game to us.

“They ap­proached it with a lot of en­ergy and en­thu­si­asm and caused us a lot of prob­lems.

“It was a dif­fer­ent game than we’re used to but we got through it.

“To­day was a dif­fer­ent kind of per­for­mance and we had to dig in and wait for our chances.

“We took them and the most im­por­tant thing is that we’ve se­cured an­other three points.”
