Irvine Meadow co-manager Colin Spence says his side could have picked up the three points at the weekend instead of just one, as they drew 1-1 with Hurlford United.

Medda went into the West of Scotland Football League Premier Division match looking to get back to winning ways in the league having lost their past two top flight matches.

They started off perfectly in their quest to do just that at Blair Park when they stunned the Ford with an early opener.

Sam McCloy blasted in on the breakaway to put the visitors ahead.

Meadow could have double that advantage in the opening period via several chances, however they were unable to add to their lead as they went into the break 1-0 up.

In the second half, Hurlford punished the away side by grabbing a late equaliser to level proceedings.

Poor defending in the Medda box saw a cross hit off two defenders before hitting off Ford sub Carter Frew and into the back of the net.

That was how the match finished in the end and the points were shared as Meadow’s winless run in the Premier Division was extended to three games.

Speaking to the Times, Spence said: “It was probably a game that we could have won.

“But in the end it is a game that I am thankful not to lose.

“I think if we had won the game no one would have complained.

“But I think for the way Hurlford came at us in the second half, they will maybe think they deserved a point.

“The main thing is if you cannot win it, you do not lose it.”

Next up for Medda is another league match as they host Blantyre Victoria.

Spence says his side must pick up three points on Saturday as part of his December targets

He said: “The month of December has three games now, Blantyre and Rossvale in the league and we play Saltcoats in the cup.

“So, I think we have got to target three wins.

“I think that would be acceptable to sit us in a good position after the first half of the season to tell you the truth.”
