Gartcairn can't feel sorry for themselves after West of Scotland League woes, says Scott Mills

By Paul Thomson

Gartcairn assistant Scott Mills insists they can’t feel sorry for themselves after their latest defeat and the Covid issues affecting the club.

The Airdrie outfit have now gone four games without a win in West of Scotland League Conference B after a 1-0 defeat to Greenock on Saturday.

It came on their return to action following a Covid outbreak forcing their clash with Cambuslang last week to be postponed, but Mills said his players should have gave more.

He said: “We were very frustrated and annoyed. There was nothing in it in terms of the game. I don’t think either team played particularly well, but their boy James Marks was the difference.

“He scored the goal and had a really good game, that’s what it came down to.

“It’s the first time this season where we’ve felt let down by the performance.

“We didn’t have enough passion, desire and effort - the things you take for granted. I think there’s a few of us feeling sorry for ourselves and we need to snap out of it quickly.

“We’ve not won a game in the last four in the league, so we all have to take responsibility and ask ourselves how we can make it better.”

Cairn have slipped down the table to seventh and now visit Thorniewood on Saturday, having let a 3-0 lead slip against them earlier in the season.

And Mills warned: “We are looking for a reaction this week against a team we were 3-0 up against and drew 3-3 with,

“That should be enough motivation for us all to go and win this game. We’ve got a couple of games in hand and we can go back up the table if we win them.”
