KIRKINTILLOCH’S junior side will be looking to make it three wins on the spin this weekend.

Rabs claimed their second successive 2-1 victory on Saturday and once again came from behind – this time to claim victory over Cumnock.

It puts them on six points after three games, just a point behind early leaders Auchinleck Talbot.

Gaffer Lindsay beamed: “We did very well. Again we went behind in the first half, but again we showed the character to come back and win it. The ethos of the players who have come in is superb. They have an amazing work rate and a real will to win.

“Fitness is key. I think that at the moment we’re playing these teams and matching them for long periods of time then our fitness kicks in and we get the goals. It won’t always happen, of course, and we need to start passing the ball better, but this is a completely different squad to last year’s.”

And the manager says another crucial difference from last year – when Rabs finished seventh in the league – is the strength in depth the new players have added.

He explained: “We’ve got guys who aren’t in the side who are still encouraging the players on the pitch. Meanwhile, those players know that one bad performance and these guys could have their place. It’s a good position to be in.”

Lindsay now hopes his team can deliver the hat-trick of league wins against strugglers Glenafton Athletic at home this Saturday. Kick-off is at 2pm.
