Looking for a winning run

KILSYTH Rangers' players will take a huge confidence boost from their 5-0 win at Neilston, says assistant manager Danny Smith.

The Duncansfield side controlled Saturday's game from start to finish, something they must learn to do regularly if they are to challenge for promotion.

Smith said: "I think for the first time we showed what we are capable of this season. When we made it three nil they lost their discipline and ended up with eight men. But we did the damage when they still had their full team on the park.

"At the beginning of the season we weren't starting to play until we had gone a goal down, then against Greenock the other week we started well and faded away. This is the first time we've played well for the whole game - it was a great performance."

Smith thinks the team are capable of great things and hopes they learn from their early results this season.

He continued: "Neilston in my eyes were no better or worse than any of the other teams we've played against. The result was down to our players' performances and hard work. I'm hoping they take a lot of confidence from it and take that into our next game."

Smith told the News and Chronicle last week that he felt the team needed "a decent result together with a really good performance". With that in mind, does he think this could be the start of a winning run?

He added: "I'm hoping so. I just thought we needed something to spark us and get us going this season, before Saturday we hadn't had a great performance. But now we can use this to progress and build on and hopefully make it two wins in a row and take it from there."
