Beith manager Bryan Young bemoaned a red card costing his side as they lost 1-0 to Darvel.

The Cabes were in action on Monday night in a quick turn around from their 1-1 draw with Clydebank at the weekend.

They were away from home once again as they made the trip to Recreation Park for more West of Scotland Football League Premier Division action.

The two sides went in at the break goalless with little action in the opening 45 minutes.

In the second half, the Cabes were reduced to ten men when Steven Noble was shown a second yellow.

The hosts made the most of their man advantage to grab a winner through Ian McShane as the Mighty fell to defeat.

Speaking to the Herald, Young said:”To be fair to the players they worked their socks off and the effort they gave me was absolutely incredible.

“I thought with 11 men the game was very competitive and we carried out the game plan right until the sending off.

“Steven has been given two yellow cards within five minutes of each foul.

“The first one was fair enough but the second one was right in front of their dugout and the referee has been so quick to bring out the second yellow.”
