NEILSTON co-manager Derek Carson insists his side won’t take anything for granted as they get set to welcome basement boys Larkhall Thistle on Saturday. 

Larkie have only picked up one point all season and already seem destined to be playing League One football next season.

They picked up their first point of the campaign on Saturday in a 0-0 draw with promotion chasers Whitletts Victoria, ending a run of 17 straight defeats.

And after Neilston dropped points against relegation strugglers Kello Rovers in January, a game they were hot favourites for, Carson isn’t taking anything for granted. 

The Farmer’s Boys were left “embarrassed” by that surprise draw and the gaffer is determined to avoid a repeat on Saturday. 

He said: “Larkhall got a really good result on Saturday.

“Everybody expected us to beat Kello and the boys didn’t turn up.

“We prepared well last week and got a terrific result on Saturday so we’ll be preparing the same way again.”

Neilston welcome Larkhall Thistle to Brig O’Lea at the weekend and kick off is at 2pm.
