Cumnock manager Brian McGinty lamented over his sides lack of squad depth as they lost 2-1 to Maryhill at the weekend.

The Nock found themselves behind early on in the West of Scotland Football League Cup tie at Townhead Park.

A header from Craig Patterson put the away side ahead before the hosts quickly equalised through Greg Ferry.

A goal late into injury time in the first half from Ross McKenzie put the Hill back ahead at the break. That was how the score stayed as Cumnock exited the competition in the First Round.

Speaking to the Chronicle, McGinty said: “There is a lot of injuries at the moment but that is no excuse.

“With all respect to Maryhill, if I do not have players in the dressing room that regardless of what team I pick can beat Maryhill in the cup then the depth of the squad is not good enough for this level of football.

“If I can’t jumble the squad and give people opportunities and still have a team that can beat Maryhill, it tells you that the squad as a whole in terms of depth is not where it should be.

“But credit to Maryhill they deserved to win.”
