A full-strength Rob Roy team showed exactly what they are capable of on Saturday - scoring four goals and leaping up to third in the league table.

The 4-2 away win against Irvine Meadow was undoubtedly the Kirkintilloch team’s performance of the season, delighting gaffer Stewart Maxwell who had previously insisted that a run of bad performances was largely down to a string of injuries.

He told the Herald: “It makes a massive difference having a full squad to pick from. It was difficult because for the first time I had to leave some of the boys out of the team, but they took it in the right spirit.

“We were able to play more offensively and it was a great performance.

“The only disappointment was losing a couple of goals, but the way we defended we didn’t deserve to. One was a deflection and the other came from nowhere.”

This Saturday Rabs take on big-spending Hurlford United, but Maxwell insists his team “can beat anyone in the league on their day”.

He added: “We have heart, endeavour, youth and honesty – I’d take that over their money any day.”

Rabs play Hurlford United at Adamslie Park on Saturday. Kick-off is at 2pm.

There will be a charity collection at the gate for Campsie View School.
