AFTER tasting victory for the first time since taking over as Irvine Meadow co-boss, Colin Spence is looking to build on the success as they gear up for one of their biggest games of the season.

Spence steered his team to a 3-1 success away to struggling Benburb. Now they face McBookie Premiership rivals Pollok in the third round of the Ardagh Group West of Scotland Cup on Saturday. A win will take them into the quarter-finals with Talbot legend Spence hoping to help them end their trophy drought.

Spence experienced one of his most frustrating moments against the Glasgow side earlier this season as they were held 3-3 at home, despite charging into a 3-0 lead.

The co-boss said: “It was good to finally chalk up a win. We had chances in the other games, but failed to take them. Hopefully we can finish well in the league.

“This is a big game for us on Saturday. It was so frustrating not beating Pollok in the league match. Irvine Meadow are looking to win trophies and if we can go through we are in the quarter-finals. Hopefully we can do it.”

Kilwinning Rangers boss Chris Strain was unhappy to see his side draw 2-2 at home to Rutherglen Glencairn.

He said: “I’m disappointed we have not won. I thought we could have been better in the first half and let ourselves down when we went 1-0 up. They came out in the second half, got their sleeves rolled up, got stuck in and merited the draw. We missed a couple of chances near the end which would have got us three points.”
