Cairn boss frus­trated with draw

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Back Page -

Gart­cairn boss Jamie McKen­zie has chal­lenged his play­ers to go on and win the West Re­gion League One ti­tle af­ter derby day heart­break against Wishaw.

An equaliser in the clos­ing stages saw the league lead­ers drop two points to their North La­nark­shire neigh­bours in an en­ter­tain­ing 4-4 draw.

MTC Park gaffer McKen­zie ad­mits it is the first time he has had to “have a go” at the play­ers af­ter they let the lead slip three times.

How­ever, he is op­ti­mistic about the rest of the cam­paign as Cairn hold a slen­der three­p­oint lead at the top of the ta­ble.

“It’s two points dropped for us, def­i­nitely,” McKen­zie told the Ad­ver­tiser. “With less than five min­utes to go it was a cruel way to draw the game.

“I can’t be too harsh on the boys, but it’s the first time this sea­son I have had to have a go and a heart-to-heart with them in the dress­ing room to let them know I was dis­ap­pointed.

“They have been so good for me this sea­son, but I am look­ing for us to win at least 10 of the re­main­ing 12 league games.

“That’s what I think we will need to make sure we win the league.”
