GLENAFTON Athletic fought out a hard-earned 1-1 draw away to table-topping Kilwinning Rangers at the weekend.

Both teams had spells where they dominated proceedings but Glens manager Craig McEwan felt they should have edged it in terms of chances created over the 90 minutes.

He said: “I was frustrated — very frustrated — and I told the players after the game that they need to be more clinical in front of goal.

“The second goal in the game was going to be a crucial one and it was Kilwinning who got it. They got a massive lift from that and, to be honest, we kind of huffed and puffed after that.

“Yet, if we had scored the second goal and taken some of the umpteen chances we had, it would have been a different outcome.

“But they are top of the league for a reason. They have got good players and at the end it looked as if we were the lucky team when they hit the post.”

Buffs are in much the same position that Glens were a year ago when they started to string results together, and their gaffer wants that to happen again.

“I am looking on this match as two points dropped although they will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season.

“People don’t like the unfashionable teams being up there and Kilwinning are proving them wrong, just as we did last year.

“We now go again at Girvan and we need to put a run together — I have 100 per cent belief in that dressing room, I know we will do it. It’s just taking a bit longer this season,” he added.
