DETERMINED Irvine Victoria manager Stevie Wilson says his side must keep their focus after reclaiming top spot in the Ayrshire District League.

The boss was impressed with the performance in the 6-3 home win against Saltcoats Vics, but expects a very tough test on Saturday when they head to Merksworth Park to face Dalry Thistle.

Wilson said: "Saltcoats have improved and it was always going to be tough. It was disappointing to be down at half-time but we dominated the second half and scored some good goals. It's good to be top. We're now at the halfway stage, but have to keep it going. It will be difficult at Dalry as they are a very good side, the aim will be to go there and do what we can to win the game. If we don't we will just dust ourselves down and get on with it."

Vics have signed former Kilwinning Rangers, Maybole and Darvel midfielder Kenny Parris, after making two appearances as a trialist.

Wilson said: "Kenny is an experienced player who has done very well for us, he has been at a few clubs and brings quality to the squad."

Meanwhile Kilwinning Rangers are to appeal the red-cardings of manager Chris Strain and coach Stuart Wilson in the 1-1 draw against Glenafton Athletic a week past on Saturday.

He said: "The decisions are being appealed. We were accused of overly-aggressive behaviour but I don't think that was the case."

Buffs on Saturday are at Clydebank and Strain said: "Hopefully the game will be on after last week's postponement and we aim to get back to winning ways."
