Yoker Athletic boss Gordon Robertson insists he is taking nothing for granted when it comes to securing second division football next season.

The Whe Ho came from 2-0 down to earn a point against Maryhill on Saturday and all but secure their status in the Second Division for the 2024/25 campaign.

Connor Hamilton put Maryhill ahead at Holm Park with a free kick on the stroke of half time and Ross Loughlin doubled the lead just after the hour.

The hosts got themselves back into the game when Nathan Marriott finished from a Gary McKay pass before Macaulay McArthur earned Yoker a point from the penalty spot.

A catalogue of results would have to go against Robertson’s side for them to end up finding themselves relegated as they currently six points clear of the drop zone with Glasgow Perthshire needing to win both of their games with a nine-goal swing to see them leapfrog Yoker.

One game remains for Robbo’s troops when they go to Caledonian Locomotives next weekend, and he hopes that his sides fate is already secured by the time that game comes around.

Speaking to the Post, he said: “On Saturday we were missing a lot of important players and we had to shuffle things around.

“Maryhill are a good team and I had watched them just a couple of weeks before so we knew it would be a tough game.

“I think they shaded the first half and scored from a free kick which took a deflection and made it unsavable really.

“Defending set pieces has been a real problem for us recently and we conceded from another on Saturday but we changed things about after that and scored a lovely goal to get back into it.

“At that stage we were the better team and looked the more likely so I was really pleased with the desire that the guys showed, they didn’t chuck it when we went 2-0 down and five minutes from time we got our reward with a penalty after a well-worked corner of our own.

“With the way the game went, I’m pleased with what we showed to get the point but the manner with one or two things in the game is a concern.

“It would take a number of things to happen for us not to be in the Second Division next season but stranger things have happened so we need to be mindful of that.

“The whole bottom half of the league could in theory still go down – everyone from ninth downwards could still get relegated if enough results go against them.

“The hope is that everything is sorted by our next league game but it’s all still a bit up in the air.”

Yoker face Caledonian Locomotives at Petershill Park next Saturday, May 11.

Clydebank, meanwhile, return to Holm Park this weekend for the final time this season after a month long lay-off from league fixtures.

Bankies will be looking to end the season on a high after a disappointing run of results in 2024 took them out of the title race.

Gordon Moffat’s side host St Cadoc’s on Saturday, kick-off is at 2.00pm, before they round off their campaign at Pollok the following week.
