ARDEER Thistle boss Sean Kenney described last weekend’s loss to Glasgow University as his “lowest” point in the role.

The Stevenston side were dispatched 5-0 at the Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie – as they were one of only four matches involving WoSFL sides to beat the freeze.

Though Kenney and his team may have wished the game had been called off, and they had avoided that performance.

Thistle were 2-0 down at half time and though while Kenney was far from pleased he admitted it was only mistakes that cost them.

However, when it came to the second 45 he had nothing good to say.

He told the club’s social media: “First half, two silly mistakes cost us. Our general play was not bad but nowhere near enough.

“Second half was terrible, an absolute embarrassment. We’ve let ourselves down massively.”

That second half saw a complete collapse from the travelling Ardeer side.

A 12 minute spell from the 50th minute saw Ardeer concede three goals, and they were reduced to 10 men as Jack Taylor was sent off – as the match became not only out of reach, but out of hand.

The scoring would stop there, although Thistle would end the game with nine men as Andy McGregor joined Taylor in having to take an early bath.

At the full time whistle, boss Kenney cut a very dejected figure.

He commented: “It’s the lowest I’ve been since I’ve been at the club. It was nowhere near good enough and nowhere near acceptable.

“We’ll not be forgetting with it because we’ll be dealing with it on Tuesday [at training].

“We need to look into it, we’ll watch it back, we’ll learn from it and we’ll need to sort stuff out that’s for sure.”

Ardeer will now look to bounce back, having followed up their excellent three league wins in a row with three defeats on the spin.

They face Maybole away next week, which will be a stern test against a side who have lost just one match in the league all season.

When asked how he will pick his players up for the game, Kenney said: “That’s not up to me, that’s up to the boys, they’ll need to do that.”
