Irvine Meadow co-manager Colin Spence says his side’s second goal was key as they got back to winning ways with a 3-0 win over Rutherglen Glencairn at the weekend.

Medda got off to the perfect start in the Premier Division clash taking the lead early on through Sam McCloy’s rebound.

That was the only goal of the opening period at Meadow Park as the hosts went in at the break one nil up.

In the second half, Meadow doubled their advantage through returning striker Graham Boyd.

The forward burst through on goal on the breakaway and coolly slotted past the Rutherglen goalie Matt McGinley.

The hosts then had a chance to grab a third when Del McNab was fouled in the box whilst trying to get onto a rebound.

Up stepped Mark McLennan and he made no mistake from the spot, sending McGinley the wrong way and rolling the ball in.

That ended the scoring and Medda’s winless streak as they picked up the three points.

Speaking to the Times, Spence said: “The difference from recent weeks is we went and got that second goal at the weekend which really made a big difference.

“It gave us a platform then to go and enjoy the rest of game.

“I thought the boys were excellent, especially in the second half , it was a really good performance from them.”

Up next for Meadow is a tough test in the Scottish Junior Cup against a familiar foe in Auchinleck Talbot.

Medda have already faced the Bot twice this season losing on both occasions in the Scottish Cup and the league.

Spence says his side will be massive underdogs for the tie but that tag suits them for their trip to Beechwood.

The co-manager said: “Obviously, this time nobody is expecting us to win after losing to them twice now.

“I do not think anyone will give us a chance, so Talbot will be big favourites and hopefully we will go there as underdogs and it will suit us.

“We have been excellent on the road this season so far, so the players have nothing to fear.”
