Irvine Meadow co-manager Colin Spence says his side need to get back to basics after losing 1-0 to Kilbirnie Ladeside at the weekend.

Medda got back to winning ways a fortnight ago with a 2-1 win over Bonnyton Thistle to end their two match winless streak.

So, they were keen to pick up another win and a bit of consistency when they welcomed Kilbirnie to Meadow Park.

However, they were undone in the second half when the away side took the lead via Dylan Henry’s rebound.

Meadow were then given a man advantage late on in the West of Scotland Football League Premier Division match when Alan Frizzell was shown a straight red.

Despite having the extra man on the park, Medda could not find an equaliser as they fell to defeat.

Speaking to the Times, Spence said: “We did not create enough chances, simple as that.

“I thought we defended pretty well, Marc Waters only had one save to make in the full game and they scored from the rebound from that.

“So, defensively I did not think we were bad at all but unfortunately right now we are just quite not firing at the top end of the park.

“Which obviously is a bit of a concern and we are not getting into the same flow as we were earlier in the season.

“So, there is a lot of hard work needed, go back to basics and start doing the basics right.”

Next up for Meadow is another league match as they travel to the KG Stadium to take on Blantyre Victoria.

It is the first of 10 upcoming league fixtures as Medda endure a chock a block fixture frenzy towards the end of their campaign.

Spence is keen to get a positive run of results in a busy run of fixtures starting this weekend against the Vics.

He said: “It has been very stop start, we win a game, lose a game and we cannot get any momentum going.

“So, we have a lot of work to do this week at training, starting with getting back to fundamentals.

“We need to change something at this moment in time to get a reaction from the players and get back to winning ways.”
