Kilbirnie Ladeside co manager Thomas Molloy says the Blasties 2-1 win over Rutherglen Glencairn was one for the fans.

A Dylan Henry double in the first half put the hosts in control early on in the first half at Valefield Park.

Rutherglen grabbed one back before the break but they could not add to it as the Blasties picked up a second league win of the season.

Speaking to the Herald, Molloy revealed: “I said to the players after the game that win was for the fans.

“I keep trying to drum it into the players, in the short space of time that I have worked with them, that we need to get the fans onside as they will be an extra man for us.

“It proved true at the weekend, they stayed with us right until the end.”

Next up for Kilbirnie is a big derby match up against rivals Beith Junior s at Bellsdale Park.

Despite the Cabes higher league position, Molloy says the blasties recent form has him quietly confident for the clash.

“I know Beith have had quite a decent season so far but there is nothing to fear on our end.

“If you take the Cumbernauld game in the cup out of the equation,we are unbeaten in three games now.

“We might have one or two new faces in the squad as a couple from last week cannot make it.

“It is a big game but it was one we are going into on a bit of form and we are really looking forward to it.”
