Kirkintilloch Rob Roy looking to get back on track in the league

Rob Roy will travel to Irvine Meadow this Saturday without a win in five games - but with close to a full-strength squad and high hopes.

Rabs have had a bad run of late after a promising start to the season, culminating in a 2-1 loss to league strugglers Arthurlie.

A plague of injuries has done them no favours, but gaffer Stewart Maxwell says that his team are back to near full-strength and ready to reignite their league campaign.

He said: “Don’t judge me on recent results, judge me on our performances when we have all our players fit.

“We were poor in the first half against Arthurlie. I told the players at half-time that it wasn’t good enough and to be fair to them they responded.

“We should have got a draw, but it’s hard when you are continually being forced to play players out of position.

“This Saturday is the first time we’ve had just about a full team.

“At the end of the day we’re three points off second bottom, but we’re only two points off second top, which shows how close the league is.

“Only Auchinleck are running away with it.

“We just need to start getting some results in the win column.”

Rob Roy play Irvine Meadow at Meadow Park on Saturday. Kick-off is at 2pm.

Stewart Maxwell is running the Glasgow Half Marathon this Saturday to raise money for Campsie View School.
