Glenafton Athletic manager Mick McCann says he was sure of the same penalty takers in their weekend shootout win against Kello Rovers after they lost on penalties midweek.

The Glens suffered penalty shootout heartbreak midweek in the Scottish Junior Cup, as they lost to derby rivals Cumnock.

Leon Murphy opened the scoring for the away side at Townhead in the first half of the second round tie.

But the Nock fought back in the second period, with the inform Finlay Frye levelling the game.

It went the full distance before the penalty shootout, with the Afton losing 5-3 to Cumnock to bow out of the competition.

It was not too long before they were back in cup action however as they faced Kello Rovers in the South Challenge Cup at the weekend.

However, it looked like it may be deja vu for Glenafton as the second round tie finished 3-3.

But the hosts prevailed at Loch Park, winning the shootout 4-1 to progress into the hat for the third round.

Speaking to the Chronicle, McCann said: “To be fair apart from the one we missed against Cumnock the players scored some good penalties.

“So, I did not think there was any need to change who was on them.

“Penalties are a lottery, as we all know so, and this past week proves it.

“We went out midweek and at the weekend we went through, so you just never know when it goes to penalties.

“But the players were brave enough to step up again and do the business.”

Next up for the Afton is a Premier Division clash against Rossvale this weekend.

It is a side McCann says he is very familiar with having beaten them in the league a few weeks ago.

He said: “It is the Scottish Junior Cup this weekend so we had a free week as did Rossvale, so we decided to take on the fixture.

“We only played them a couple of weeks ago at New Petershill Park, so it is still fresh in the memory and we know how hard and tough it going to be.

“Looking at the league table we are both in the mix, it is tight.”
