McBookie Premiership



FRUSTRATED Buffs boss Chris Chris Strain insisted his side had improved however the refereeing performance of whistler Chris Gentles let his side down in Saturday’s 3-0 away defeat to Pollok at Newlandsfield.

After a fairly quiet first half Buffs captain Craig Pettigrew volleyed wide after Scott Johnson’s punch fell to him at the edge of the penalty area on half-time.

In 50 minutes, Carlo Monto gathered the ball out on the left, took it past his man and whipped in a cross for Bryan Boylan, who connected with the ball five yards out only to see his shot flash wide. In 66 minutes, Pollok made Kilwinning pay for their missed chances. Ryan McGregor’s powerful run couldn’t be stopped as he beat three men and found Shaun Fraser, who netted. Pollok doubled their advantage six minutes later through Adam Forde. Substitute Stefan McCluskey found Forde, who struck a ferocious shot into the top right.

Pollok made it three without reply in 90 minutes when Stefan McCluskey netted.
