Neilston co-manager Chris Cameron was full of praise for his side after they extended their excellent run of results with a 1-0 win away to Whitletts Victoria.

Saturday’s win saw the Farmer’s Boys move up to fourth in the West Region Championship table as they stretched their unbeaten run to 11 in all competitions, including four league wins on the bounce.

Neilston settled quickly and created a number of chances in what turned out to be a dominant first-half display.

Mark Archdeacon set up strike partner Dylan Fletcher who forced Scott Johnston into a top save.

However, the Vics keeper could do nothing to deny Fletcher moments later with the striker unleashing an unstoppable drive into the top corner to open the scoring.

Martin Curren, Ross Mackinnon and Archdeacon all came close as the first-half came to an end with Johnston singlehandedly keeping his side in with a chance.

The second-half proved to be a more even affair with chances few and far between at either end. 

Vics pressed for the equaliser but never really threatened Kyle Pirie in the Neilston goal while Fletcher went close with a header past the angle. 

The home side were reduced to 10 men with 25 minutes to go and that was it as Neilston saw it out to take another vital three points back to the Brig.

“We’re all delighted to get another three points on the board and continue our excellent run of results,” Cameron said.

“We scored a great goal through Dylan and should have probably gone on to score another two or three before the break. The game should have been over at half-time to be honest. The boys played some good football so to be fair to Whitletts they dug in and made it a good game.

“The second-half was quite even to be fair without them really troubling us or having any real clear cut chances. I wouldn’t say it was a comfortable 1-0 win but, at the same time, we were never in danger of not picking up those three points.

“We’re flying right now. Everything is going well in terms of results. The victories we’ve had of left have all been different.We’re showing great qualities and different ways of winning which is pleasing.”

Neilston turn their attention to the fourth round of the Scottish Junior Cup this weekend as they play host to East Region Super League heavyweights Lochee United.

Cameron added: “They’re the top boys in the East. They’re probably second favourites to win the competition but it’s a tie that everyone at the club is looking forward to.”
