Arthurlie manager Colin Reilly was delighted with his side's professional performance as they moved into the second round of the Scottish Junior Cup on Saturday.

Two goals in either half was enough for the ‘Lie to breeze past Kilsyth Rangers at Duncansfield Park and set up a tie with Forfar West End in round two.

Conor Bolger opened the scoring after six minutes after he burst into the box and drilled a low effort into the far corner before Dylan McGuigan headed in a second before the interval.

He also tapped in number three on 69 minutes after Bolger’s shot had been initially saved with Dylan Dykes nodding in the final goal of the afternoon in added time.

Reilly was also able to welcome goalkeeper Michael McKinven back to the starting eleven after injury whilst Godwin Kangni-Soupke was handed his full debut and Dylan Fletcher continues to settle into life at Dunterlie Park after his arrival from Johnstone Burgh last month.

The ‘Lie boss was forced into the transfer market after injuries in the final third and hopes the duo can have a positive impact.

He told Barrhead Sport: “The main message before the game was to make sure we were professional and how we dealt with the game on the day.

“It was quite comfortable and we’re glad to get the job done and into the next round.

“There was quite a lot of chances for us and going into the second-half 2-0 up took the pressure off a little bit.

“We had Michael McKinven back which was big to have and to get minutes under his belt and Connor Bradley was back in the squad so it’s good to have numbers back and start to boost the squad again.

“We’ve brought in Godwin from Stirling Albion as well as Dylan who are both attacking and exciting players and they will come and express themselves.

“Dylan scored 16 goals last season for Neilston and we needed some more goals in the team.

“We needed to boost our attacking options with Gary Carroll out for about 12 weeks and we’re already missing Scott Anson so we had to boost our options in the top end of the park.”

Arthurlie travel to Beechwood Park this weekend where Auchinleck Talbot await.

The Ayrshire side haven’t yet hit the sights that have in recent seasons as they have just one win from their opening seven fixtures.

They also hit Wigton and Bladnoch for 12 in the Junior Cup on Saturday and Reilly insists it’s always a tough place to go.

He said: “It’s always a tough place to go but we’ll approach the game in the right manner and hopefully get a result at the end of the day.”
