Yoker Athletic have made a stuttering start to their league campaign, losing against Neilston 2-1, with Clydebank loanee Alan Frizzell scoring a late winner for the Farmer’s Boys at Brig O’Lea on Saturday.

It was a largely dominant display from the home side, but the game sprung into life after 70 minutes with three goals in 10 minutes.

First Simon McBryde’s free-kick was flicked on by Allan Diack for Craig Patterson to put the Farmer’s Boys in front.

But the Whe-Ho struck back immediately when Greg Maitland crossed for Ryan Hynes to equalise.

But Frizzell, who last week signed on a season-long loan from Clydebank, struck with 10 minutes to go after the ball dropped his way following a corner.

Yoker nearly scored in the opening minute.

They forced a corner and Gary Bissland’s drive was tipped onto the crossbar by Burns.

Neilston hit back and were denied by a series of saves from Liam Campbell as he first blocked Diack’s shot from McBryde’s lay-off.

Minutes later he stopped Patterson’s low shot at his near post.

Then Patterson set up Jonny McStay whose shot was tipped around the post by the keeper.

The visitors started the second half well and Craig Burns denied Maitland the opening goal as he saved well from his low drive.

Neilston made their only change of the game with Alan Frizzell replacing Martin Curren in the 50th minute and were denied a goal minutes later when Clark’s header was cleared off line.

Neilston had the ball in the net but the referee ruled out for offside much to the annoyance of the home fans.

Then came the frantic 10 minutes which ultimately decided the game as Neilston kept up their perfect start to the league season.

Athletic’s next game is away to Forth Wanderers, kick off at Kingshill Park is at 2pm.
