THE SJFA are under pressure to award Glenafton Athletic three points from their abandoned match with Cambuslang Rangers.

Police were called to Loch Park on December 22 after referee Calum Scott was assaulted and the match was abandoned in the first half with Glens leading 1-0 against nine men.

Manager Craig McEwan felt his side were in for a comfortable win but admits the club don’t know what will happen.

McEwan told the Chronicle: “We’re waiting on the SJFA to make up their mind. I don’t know if they are waiting for the police or what, we don’t know.

“Our point of view, from a club stance, if we don’t get handed the three points it’ll be really, really disappointing.

“We’re 1-0 up, cruising against nine men, we’re probably going to go on and win the game comfortably with the chances we created but it’s up to the SJFA.

“There probably hasn’t been a decision made because it’s Christmas and New Year so we probably won’t find out for another couple of weeks. We’ll see what happens.”

On the park, McEwan’s side twice threw away a lead as they drew 3-3 with Beith.

Mick McCann scored twice after Joe Andrew gave Glens the lead but they couldn’t see it out as both sides ended with 10 men and had a goal disallowed for offside.

A disappointed McEwan added: “I’m absolutely gutted for my players.

“How we drew that game is beyond me but we can’t play great for 45 and lose a cheap, cheap goal before half time and then contribute to our own downfall by giving away a penalty.

“The referee’s job is a very, very hard job and I’m not going to slaughter a referee but some of the decisions baffled me today. There was a two-foot lunge just before half time from their centre half which you’d get six months in the jail for .

“I don’t know what to say to my players.

“We scored three very, very good goals and we created umpteen chances.

“We contributed to our own downfall by giving them three goals which in my eyes were cheap.

“They didn’t have to work for their goals, we handed them goals on a plate to be honest with you so I’m spewing.

“We’ve got a point but we’re disappointed, it should have been three. I think it’s two points dropped today.”
