Neilston co-boss Chris Cameron admits Saturday was just all about picking up three points as they returned to winning ways with 2-1 victory over Thorniewood United.

The Brig O’Lea side had to come from behind after Ally Small headed the visitors ahead after only a minute.

Neilston were on top for the rest of the first-half but couldn’t find a way through before goals from Dylan Fletcher and Euan Clark turned things around after the break.

There was disappointment for the side on Wednesday evening as Rutherglen Glencairn grabbed a late point in a re-arranged league fixture and Cameron was pleased with the reaction on Saturday after going behind early on – though he did urge his team to find the clinical touch in front of goal.

Speaking to Barrhead Sport, he said: “The last four or five league games we have been saying the same in that we’ve played really well but haven’t taken three points out of games we’ve dominated or got a draw in games we’ve narrowly lost.

“It was really important just to get back to winning ways and that’s what we told the boys.

“We lost a late goal against Rutherglen on Wednesday night for them to snatch a draw and then for us to say all the right things before Saturday and lose a goal in the first minute it was really disappointing.

“The reaction was brilliant and we created seven or eight real opportunities in the first-half and we should have been out of sight so it was frustrating to be a goal down. It was a combination of us being wasteful and their goalkeeper playing really well. The message at half-time was just to keep doing what we’re doing.

“Thorniewood weren’t great in the first-half but they were better in the second-half and it was a more difficult game which sounds a bit funny considering we went on and scored two to win the game.

“It’s pleasing we’re creating so many chances but we need to start being clinical and burying teams.”

Neilston travel to the Synergy Arena on Saturday to take on Bonnyton Thistle as they look to go one better than the 1-1 draw they managed with the Ayrshire side earlier this season.

Cameron added: “Bonnyton are a good side, I know their manager well and he has a good team. It’s going to be really difficult. His teams don’t give you in inch and they are really well organised but we’ll be going there to win.”

Kick-off is at 1.30pm.
