RELIEVED Irvine Meadow manager Brian McGinty hopes to build on his first league victory since taking charge.

Medda bounced back from their 1-0 home loss against Cumbernauld United by defeating Largs Thistle by the same scoreline away from home.

McGinty who previously presided over a draw and two defeats in the league, was pleased to break his duck.

He said: "It's not the best we've played but we created chances. Admittedly our penalty is a bit soft but I'll take the win as we didn't get the breaks in some other league games."

Medda host Kilsyth Rangers in another league match on Saturday and McGinty added: "We are taking the games one at a time and the priority on Saturday is to take three points as it would push us three points above Kilsyth in the table."

Meadow have been drawn at home to East Superleague team Lochee United in the Fifth Round (last 16) of the Scottish Junior Cup.

But the boss is putting that on the back burner and said: "It's good to have a home tie and I'm gathering information on Lochee but we will get the league game out of the way before thinking about that."

Kilwinning Rangers boss Chris Strain, meanwhile is desperately hoping to be in action for the first time in a month on Saturday.

Buffs head to Loch Park to face Glenafton Athletic on Saturday. They had a friendly on Saturday, losing 2-1 to Cambuslang Rangers, with Ben Lewis on target.

Strain said: "Loch Park is always a difficult place to go and Glenafton are in a false position but we must go there looking for three points."
