DOUBLE hero Ryan Nisbet praised his side as they snapped a seven-game winless streak in the league with a stunning comeback against Glenafton Athletic.

Trailing 2-0 at half-time and facing some criticism from frustrated fans, Buffs turned the tables on their opponents and clinched an improbable 4-3 victory.

Nisbet said: "When we spoke at half-time we were still hopeful we could get back into the match. It was a real setback to go down 3-1 but we battled back strongly and it was nice to get a couple of goals. This team know what they are capable of. We have been playing well in some games but getting nothing from them.

"We really had to dig deep and show a lot of character. That was an important game, but we have take each one as it comes and look to win all our games, that's the mentality we have."

Buffs on Saturday host Bellshill Athletic in a Macron Scottish Junior Cup third round tie.

But Nisbet insists they must approach it with caution and added: "People are talking about us winning the Scottish Cup 20 years ago but we have to just focus on this tie and make sure we get through. We can't look far ahead."

Boss Chris Strain was also impressed with the comeback and said: "We showed a lot of character and really battled, it was good to get the win. There has been some criticism of us as this is a results-driven business but it was good to get the win. We have played well in other games although have made mistakes."

The manager also expects a test in the cup and added: "Bellshill have been scoring a lot of goals and if we don't turn up we could have egg on our faces so we must approach the game like all the others and make sure we progress,"

Meadow manager Brian McGinty was encouraged as his side racked up a fourth straight win, defeating Kilbirnie Ladeside 4-0.

He said: "Aaron Connolly took the penalty well and it was a great strike from Ben Carson. Also our goalie Mikey White had a couple of good saves at 0-0."

Meadow on Saturday face Kilsyth Rangers away in the Scottish Junior Cup and the McGinty added: "It won't be easy as Kilsyth will be up for it. but hopefully we can progress. It's an important game."
