The reserves return to league action tomorrow night (Monday 20th January) at the K Park facing East Kilbride. Kick-off is 7.45. We've slipped to 5th in the league (of 9) but are just 2 points off 2nd place.
Entrance is free, not sure if they open their pie shop or not.
The Reserves played their first game for four weeks and gave a really disappointing first half display, which saw them well off the pace and second to every ball. 2-0 behind at the interval – and only two down due to Chris Smith’s outstanding penalty save late on in the half – they started the second period a bit better, but more sloppy defending saw them go further behind before tenacity on the ball from Lewis Guy set up Kyle Doherty to score with a brilliant long range shot into the top corner. The home side scored again on the break before the finish however to complete a well deserved win against a Rovers side without its regular midfield of Paul Fee, Jamie Leslie and Dylan Monaghan. The only passmarks were for goalkeeper Smith, centre back Mark Doran, striker Kieran Dolan – and for the three second half substitutes, Lewis Guy and trialists Derek Armstrong and Jamie Prete, who all came on and contributed well, lifting the overall performance on a night when the team gave its worst performance of the season by far.
