Kilbirnie Ladeside co-boss Thomas Molloy says his side will need a ‘miracle’ to avoid relegation after they drew 1-1 with Rossvale at the weekend.

The Blasties went into the West of Scotland Football League Premier Division clash in search of their first win this year, with their last victory coming back at the start of December.

They started brightly at Petershill Park, taking a one goal lead into the break through Dylan Henry.

However, things began to fall away in the second half when the hosts equalised via Jonny Kavanagh.

The Blasties were then reduced to 10 men after a straight red not long after the Rossvale equaliser.

The hosts then had a chance to take all three points when they were awarded a penalty late on.

However, a great save from Joe Wilton ensured the points were shared in Glasgow.

The result sees Kilbirnie now sitting on 23 points and 18th in the table with 11 games still to play.

Depending on a variety of factors there will be at least six to eight clubs relegated from the top flight this season.

Speaking to the Herald, Molloy said:”The chances are that we need a miracle stay up.

“But the message to the players after the game was that we are still playing for the badge and the club.

“There is no way we are taking the foot off the gas, we are still representing Kilbirnie.”
