Neilston comfortably progressed to the second round of the Macron Scottish Junior Cup at the weekend with a straightforward 4-2 win over West Region League Two side Yoker.

On the back of last week’s 2-0 win away to Blantyre, Chris Cameron and Derek Carson’s Farmer’s Boys were never in any danger against the Holm Park side with Cammy Haddow opening the scoring just six minutes in.

Paul Stewart should have doubled the advantage from the spot moments later after Mark Archdeacon was tripped inside the box but fired his effort well over.

Neilston wouldn’t have too long to wait for their second, however, with Haddow turning provider 18 minutes in, laying it off for Stephen Stirling whose first-time volley from the edge of the box evaded a ruck of players in the box to sneak in.

The visitors eventually got themselves going and were able to reduce the deficit on the half hour mark.

Neilston’s third didn’t arrive until after the break when Archdeacon slotted it beyond the keeper on the hour mark before Haddow remained composed to add the fourth after a mazy run from man-of-the-match Stirling.

The Whe Ho grabbed a late consolation with 10 minutes remaining but it was nothing more than that as the hosts comfortably saw it out to book their spot in round two.

Neilston co-boss Cameron said: “We’re delighted to get ourselves into the second round. When you play against a team from a few divisions below you, it’s more about getting the result than it is about the performance to be honest.

“To be fair to Yoker, they had a go at us with an attacking formation so I need to praise our boys’ attitude and application right from the off in dealing with that.

“We went on to score four good goals and could have probably got more - the scoreline flattered Yoker to be honest.

“I mentioned last week that the cup was important but we wanted to maintain our form in the league first and foremost so we can’t wait to get back to league duty.”

Returning to the league this weekend, Neilston take on second placed Cumbernauld with Cameron under no illusions that they will face a tough task at Guys Meadow Stadium.

He added: “It has the makings of a really good game. It will absolutely be difficult for us but it will be difficult for them too. It’s two teams in form so it should be a good one.”

The Neilston supporter's bus for the Cumbernauld match will leave Brig O'Lea at 11.45am on Saturday morning.
