YOKER Athletic manager Steven Reilly felt his side could have scored more as the Whe-Ho comfortably dispatched Cumbernauld United 4-0 on Saturday.

Braces from Richard Henry and Ryan Hynes gave the visitors the three points, and Reilly was able change his squad around without disrupting the quality of the team.

And the Holm Park boss said it was one of his aims in recruitment over the summer.

He said: “It was a comfortable win in the end for us, it’s normally a hard place to go but I felt we could have scored more.

“From start to finish, man-to-man we were excellent, we worked hard throughout the park and we took the game to them and it could have been a lot more if I’m being brutally honest.

“Four boys who were coming back from holidays, that’s the benefits of having a bigger squad at this point it’s worked well.

“It’s a big squad and a good squad all the players can come in and do a job – and a good one at that.

“I have no qualms about playing any of these guys. If some of our guys are on holiday and they step in I’ll know they’ll do well.”

Hynes has scored eight goals in his last six appearances for the Whe-Ho since joining from Scottish League One side Queen’s Park, and his bit of extra quality has been just what the boss ordered.

He added: “Ryan Hynes is on fire at the moment, the level he’s been playing at with Queen’s Park to this level – no disrespect he’s a step ahead.

“It’s something we’ve been missing the last couple of seasons at Yoker, an out-and-out goalscorer, with him, David Crerand and GaryArbuckle we’re looking good going forward.”

But the manager is not getting carried away.

“We got to theArdrossan game after the new year and we won 4-1, we were on a great run of form and we were looking to finish off in a play-off spot at that point,” he recalled.

“After that we went seven or eight games without winning so at this moment in time I’ll just take every game as it comes.”

Athletic will now turn their attention to Saturday’s derby against local rivals Clydebank, and Reilly said the game will be a big test of how far his side have come.

He added: “Clydebank have had a great start but so have we. Last week was disappointing not to get the three points against Irvine Vics but we’re now on a run of seven games unbeaten.

“We were unlucky not to qualify from the League Cup section, we’ve been scoring goals but this will be a big test for us.It’s a derby game against a good Clydebank side, we’ll be able to see how far we’ve come.”
