Neilston co-boss Chris Cameron admits he couldn’t have asked for more from his side after they came away from a tough trip to St Roch’s on Saturday with a comfortable 2-0 win.

Having thrown away a 2-1 lead against Blantyre Victoria in the final minutes at the end of August, the Farmer’s Boys were denied the chance to put that swiftly behind them last weekend due to the weather.

With Saturday’s match at James McGrory Park in north Glasgow getting the go ahead, Cameron and fellow co-manager Derek Carson were desperate to return to winning ways following the Vics sickener.

And they got off to a flyer with summer arrival Mark Archdeacon opening the scoring after just eight minutes.

Neilston were comfortable for the best part of the match without looking like adding a second until the final five minutes when substitute Dylan Fletcher raced through on goal before smashing it home to seal the points late on.

“We’re delighted with the result, especially after the Blantyre game a couple of weeks ago,” Cameron said. “Going to St Roch’s and picking up three points with a clean sheet is great - I couldn’t ask for more from the boys.

“It’s always good to get a win but it was particularly good on Saturday after the Blantyre loss and the postponement last weekend. 

“To have the three points in your grasp only to lose it in the final minutes is really disappointing and then not be able to put that behind us with a match last weekend was gutting. There was five training sessions in between matches so it was hard to keep the boys’ heads up to be honest. I’m delighted with the reaction from them all.

“We were definitely the better side in the first-half and scored a decent goal.

“They looked a bit more threatening in the second-half but we made a change and began to dominate in the middle of the park, took a chance to go 2-0 up and then we could have scored three or four after that in the final minutes.”

With Neilston now in Macron Scottish Junior Cup action this weekend, Cameron admits he would have preferred to have had the chance to build on their league form instead.

He said: “We would have loved to be back in league action this weekend to carry on some momentum but the Scottish Junior Cup is the biggest tournament you can play in at our level so we’re definitely looking forward to it.”

The Brig O’ Lea side welcome league two Yoker on Saturday, with Cameron adding: “We’ve got  a home tie against a team that are two divisions below us so couldn’t really ask for any more than that. We just need to go on and do the business now.”
