ARDEER Thistle boss Sean Kenney says his side now “need to kick on” after picking up their first win in five games last weekend.

Goals from Jacob Long, Joe Young and Ben Strain helped Ardeer to a resounding 3-0 win at home to last season’s Scottish Junior Cup finalists Yoker Athletic on Saturday.

The result moves Thistle to within a point of safety in the West of Scotland Football League Second Division, and now Kenney is keen to build from this.

Speaking to the club’s media team after the match, Kenney said: “Now we’ve got to kick on. There’s got to be consistency. It’s got to be a turning point, the biggest thing for me at the end of last season was inconsistency, I hate inconsistency.

“What we do have right now is a consistency in performance. We need to have that as our platform to build and keep that.

“It wasn’t set today, it was set a couple of weeks ago, and it’s been like that every week. We’ve not had a wee bit of luck, and we’ve given away soft goals, that wasn’t the case today.

“We’ve got to go on a run now. We can’t come off it.”

He continued to say that it is these performances that have him confident of Ardeer’s survival this season.

The Thistle boss added: “Performances have been there. If we were going out and getting pumped every week, I’d think ‘we’re down’.

“But performances have been there. That’s why I’m telling you we’re still fighting.”
