Yoker made it three wins from three in the league at the weekend with a 3-1 victory over Maybole at Holm Park.

A somewhat depleted Whe Ho due to suspensions and holidays, Peter McKenna and Tommy Montgomery’s side started well all things considered and carved out a number of chances early on with high pressing and clever link-up play proving key.

After a number of missed opportunities, Gordon Cree eventually netted the opener 25 minutes in, slotting past the keeper from a one-on-one sistuation.

To their credit, the visitors, who have picked up just one win from three now, pulled one back relatively quickly.

The panic was short-lived, however, with Chris Moulangou finishing from close-range to restore the lead before the break.

The hosts couldn’t quite build on that one-goal lead at the beginning of the second period as the Bole piled on the pressure with Yoker’s defence having to come to the rescue on more than one occasion.

A powerful run and an excellent finish from Moulangou with 10 minutes remaining provided a much-needed two-goal cushion as Yoker went on to secure maximum points.

And McKenna praised his side for maintaining their perfect league start despite a number of key personnel missing.

Speaking to Post Sport, the gaffer said: “That was a great result for us. We actually had six first-team players missing which made it even better.

“We didn’t care about performance or anything like that on Saturday, it was just a case of picking up another three points and getting out of there. We worked hard, secured the three points and now we move on.

“We had a suspension and players with work and holiday commitments. To still get a 3-1 win in those circumstances goes to show how strong our squad is right now.

“Those are the kind of hard-earned points that can win you leagues. You’re not playing particularly well and you’re missing big players but you still dig in and come away with the win.

“The boys know they weren’t great but they know the points is all that mattered.”

Next up for McKenna’s men is a trip to Millburn tonight to take on Vale of Leven.

Like Yoker, Vale have also started with three wins from three and sit joint top of the table. And while McKenna acknowledges that Vale will provide a tough test, he is more than confident in his own side’s ability.

He added: “There’s a lot of confidence in the team right now. When you’re winning, there’s a buzz about the place. Hopefully we can take that into tonight against Vale of Leven.

“Vale are a good side. We played them in the Sectional League Cup group and there was nothing between us, but if our boys all turn up and play like they can, then I’m confident we can secure the three points.”
