Irvine Meadow co-manager Colin Spence insists the result was all that matters as they got back to winning ways with a 2-1 Bonnyton Thistle at the weekend.

Meadow have had a tough time in recent weeks after back to back defeats against Auchinleck Talbot in the league and cup.

So, they were desperate to get back to form when they welcomed Bonnyton Thistle to Meadow Park on Saturday.

However, the away side quickly upset the odds by taking an early lead in the West of Scotland Football League Premier Division match through Dean McColm.

The hosts rallied quickly however, with Kinlay Bilham getting on the scoresheet to ensure both sides went in at the break level at 1-1.

In the second half, Medda grabbed a winner through Connor Boyd to end their two match winless run and give them a crucial three points.

Speaking to the Times, Spence said: “It probably was not our best performance of the season that is for sure.

“We have played better than that and dropped points but all that matters at this moment in time is getting points on the board as we approach the business end of the season.

“So, I was delighted with the resilience we showed and the spirit to get the win.”

Meadow are back in action again in the league this weekend as they take on Kilbirnie Ladeside.

The Blasties, like Thistle, are also toiling near the bottom end of the table but come into the match in good form.

Spence insists his side need the points as much as Kilbirnie do and he expects a battle for them at Meadow Park.

He said: “Kilbirnie are battling for their lives but are actually in good form at the moment.

“They lost 3-1 to Pollok at the weekend but apart from that they have been on a decent run.

“So, I expect them to come to Meadow Park battling for their lives but we need the three points as much as them.

“The surface is not great at the ground at the moment so I expect that to play a part and make it even more of a battle.”
