Kilwinning Rangers boss Chris Strain says he was left disappointed with his side’s performance and result as they drew 1-1 away to Rossvale.

A David Syme penalty levelled the score for The Buffs, but they were unable to go on and find a winner, which leaves them four points behind league leaders Auchinleck Talbot.

After the match, Strain was not shy in his criticism of his players. He said: “When you pull on that Kilwinning Rangers jersey and you don’t come up to the standards of what we expect then you can expect criticism, we were highly critical of the boys based on the attitude, based on the actual technical aspects of the game. The passing, control, decision making it just wasn’t a good day for us at all.

“Our attitude was that it will come, and the game will take care of itself, but it doesn’t happen like that. You have to force yourself to go and word harder than your opposite number and today we didn’t do that and I’m disappointed.

“The feeling at this moment in time is a wee bit of anger because we’ve had warnings. That’s three Saturday’s in a row that we’ve drawn games.

“We didn’t deserve to win, we didn’t get enough from the guys, we didn’t get enough quality and Rossvale were certainly worthy of their point”.

The Buffs will be looking to avoid further disappointment and to bounce back straight away as they host Cumbernauld United tonight.
