Irvine MEADOW co-boss Colin Spence admits that Saturday’s opposition Largs are fighting for their lives - but that’s no excuse for them wanting the points more.

He conceded that the better team won at the weekend, despite the 1-0 scoreline suggesting a rather tight affair.

In typically blustery conditions at Barrfields Park, Spence feels his side struggled to take advantage in the first half, with the wind at their back. He highlighted that his side “wasted a few good set-pieces”.

Largs would make them pay with a corner kick of their own in the first half, with centre back Connor McGoldrick rising highest to nod home.

Come the second half, it was Largs who looked like building on their lead, with Medda having ‘keeper Marc Waters to thank on more than one occasion.

Their number one made multiple saves, including keeping William Sewell out from the penalty spot for the first time this season - though it was not enough.

Co-boss Spence told the Times: “Largs have hit form at the right time, and they’re fighting for their lives, and you could tell that on Saturday.

“We still need points as well, it can’t be a case of teams that want it more than us, we still need to go and fight for every point that’s available as well.”
