DETERMINED Girvan skipper Scott Dinwoodie wants to start turning draws into victories after his team were held by fellow strugglers Arthurlie.

But he was still pleased to take something from the game at Dunterlie Park after the first clash between the two teams also ended in deadlock back in August.

The Seasiders drew 1-1 in a closely contested match, although they were dealt a blow as Mark Doolan was taken off with a broken foot following an innocuous tackle.

Dinwoodie, however said he felt they could have taken all three points.

He said: "Arthurlie is always a difficult venue and it was good we took something from the game. I would say Arthurlie had most of the pressure, especially in the first half. The second half was a bit more even although we had a couple of opportunities which if taken would have won us the match. It was a blow to lose Mark as he's a key player for us. He could be out until after Christmas."

Girvan on Saturday head up the M77 to face basement team Clydebank at Holm Park.

And the significance of the match is not lost on Dinwoodie, who said: "They beat us twice last year and we were both promoted. We really must go up there and look to take all three points. So far we have drawn four games, lost two and won only one, which was against Hurlford.

"The aim is to start turning our draws into victories. We have a lot of chances in games but are not putting them away and that is something we must start doing. We don't want to end up second bottom or bottom and be in the playoffs.

"There is a good team spirit and a lot of the guys have been together for five years."
