VETERAN Irvine Meadow stopper Darren Miller believes that experience in the squad has boosted their hopes of top-flight survival following another vital victory.

And he also insists that team spirit has never wavered.

Meadow defeated Cambuslang Rangers 2-0 at Somervell Park to rack up their fourth straight win and fourth successive clean-sheet.

They are now fourth bottom of the McBookie Premiership - four points clear of basement side Renfrew.

Miller said: "I have been playing in central defence in partnership with Callum Gow and we have been playing well. We also have a very experienced squad with James Latta signing this season and Colin Spence coming here last season. There is a great spirit in the squad but to be fair there always been even when results weren't going so well. We were creating chances in games and not taking them and making mistakes, although we know there is a lot of work to be done. Our aim is to stay in this league."

Boss Brian McGinty was delighted with the result and hopes the team can prove their critics wrong.

He said: "That was another good win but when we move on to our next league game we are starting from zero, you can't talk about four-in-a-row or anything. Some teams have written us off, hopefully we can prove the doubters wrong come the end of the season. But we must keep working hard."

Saturday sees Meadow host Vale of Leven in the West of Scotland Cup.

McGinty added: "It was bitterly disappointing to be out of the Scottish Cup the other week and we would have liked a league game as we have momentum. But Vale of Leven will be up for it but we just look on this as a game we should win and will prepare for it properly in training from Tuesday."
