Neilston co-boss Chris Cameron watched on as his side extended their unbeaten run to 10 games in all competitions with a 4-3 win over Gartcairn at the weekend before insisting the Farmer’s Boys are still nowhere near their best.

With a five-game run in the league topped up by their Scottish Junior Cup exploits, the Brig O’ Lea side are flying, with their most recent win seeing them climb up to fifth in the West Region Championship table.

Neilston were missing the suspended Cammy Haddow on Saturday as well as captain Allan Diack, who picked up a knock during a friendly with the U19s last week, as Dylan Fletcher and Mark Archdeacon started up front.

Cameron’s side opened the scoring just three minutes in at MTC Park in Airdrie with Martin Curren there to nod home Fletcher’s cross before they went on to double their lead on the 20 minute mark with Dylan Convery poking it home at the back post.

The Cairn pulled one back from a corner on the half hour mark but Neilston restored their two-goal lead less than a minute later thanks to Fletcher.

Gartcairn responded well early in the second-half to reduce the deficit once again before piling on the pressure for the majority of the second 45 with the Farmer’s Boys forced to dig in.

Neilston grabbed a fourth against the run of play thanks to Ross MacKinnon with five minutes remaining.

Back came Cairn with a third in the 90th minute but it was too little too late as Neilston managed to see it out.

Cameron said: “I’m absolutely delighted to get that win. As expected, it was a very difficult game and they came at us right from the off.

“To be fair to Gartcairn, they had us under the cosh for a solid 40 minutes in the second-half. It was back to the wall for most of that and a bit of a rollercoaster with the quick-fire goals.

“The first-half was all us and the second was a different story with them playing well, so we’re delighted to come away with the three points.

“If you look at all of our games in the league and in the cup then we’re unbeaten in 10 matches now.

“That run has got us up to fifth in the league with a game in hand on those above us.

“The crazy, and maybe frustrating thing at times, is that I don’t think we’ve actually played our very best football for an entire 90 minutes yet.

“We’ve not reached the level we know we can but we’re still digging out the wins and doing the business to grind out the results and move up the table, which is the mark of a good team.”
