PETERSHILL kept their hopes of league glory alive after coming from behind to take all three points against a hard- working Cumnock side on Saturday.

Two goals in three second-half minutes from Burke and McLaughlin gave Peasy a crucial 3-2 win and extended their lead at the top of the Premier Division to eight points.

With just two fixtures left to play the Springburn side know they need every point on offer – with main rivals Irvine Meadow X1 17 points behind, but with a massive eight games in hand.

Co-manager Scott Smith said: “We were delighted with the result. Getting an away win in this league is always an achievement – particularly against a team who are fighting for league survival.

“We’ve let in a few sloppy goals of late, but just as long as we keep on more than making up for it at the other end it’s not costing us.

“To come from behind also shows a bit of character as well, which is good because we can’t afford to lose any more games or drop any more points.”

Petershill don’t have any game this weekend and the date of their next league fixture, against either Largs or Ashfield, has yet to be announced.

Kirkintilloch Rob Roy were in cup heaven on Saturday as they thrashed beleaguered Royal Albert 10-0.

Five goals from super striker Iain Diack and a hat-trick from Adam Coakley were amongst the highlights.

Meanwhile, Rossvale FC beat Blantyre Vics 3-2 at Petershill Park in the Central District Second Division.
