Yoker Athletic manager Steven Reilly said his side fully deserved their 4-3 derby day victory against Clydebank on Saturday.

Goals from David Crerand, Mark Maxwell, Ryan Hynes and Greg Maitland moved the Whe-Ho to the top of the Super League First Division after three games.

Reilly was delighted with his side’s performance, as Yoker continue their good early season form.

He said: “We deserved the victory, there’s no doubt about that but we could have made it a bit more comfortable for ourselves.

“We let in some stupid goals which Clydebank really didn’t have to work for. But all in all it was a good result.

“It’s a nice feeling [to be top of the table] even though it’s only a few games, we’re on an eight-game unbeaten run if you count the League Cup section games. The confidence is high but it’s still early doors.”

The only black mark from Saturday for Athletic was Gary Bissland’s dismissal after 66 minutes, and the boss had no arguments over the sending off.

He added: “I’ve got no complaints, it was disappointing from Gary to go and do what he did. We don’t mind giving away fouls or fouls that are going to benefit us by stopping the play but I’m not sure what Gary was trying to do.

“He’s disappointed with himself and he let his teammates down. It would be different if we had lost the game but we got the result at the end.”

And the Whe-Ho boss gave his thoughts on the controversial second goal Yoker scored – Bankies protested the ball hadn’t crossed the line.

He said: “I’m not too sure and I couldn’t see it from where I was standing – at the time I thought it was a goal, but I wasn’t in a good position to see it.”

“They go for you sometimes, and sometimes they don’t.”

Yoker host Girvan on Saturday, and Reilly will be looking to start a similar team against a side who have won both their opening games.

He said: “I think the team are doing well, we’ll try and keep the same team for the next game.”
