DISAPPOINTED Girvan FC coach Scott Clelland has warned his side they will have to tighten up on discipline, following his team's 4-0 defeat away to Super Premier Division champions Glenafton Athletic.

Michael Reilly was sent off in the 4-0 defeat at Loch Park which leaves Girvan too close for comfort to the bottom of the table.

The former Darvel manager said: "In the first half we shot ourselves in the foot, diving into silly tackles and then getting the red card.

My player has said that the referee swore at him and he responded by telling the official not to talk to him like that, so he sent him off. That sending off has killed us as well as losing some sloppy goals.

"In the second half the boys dug in well without creating too many chances. But we have to sort out our discipline because, against teams like Glenafton, you get punished. They had three chances and scored three goals and the fourth goal at the end was just the icing on the cake for them.

"We are the underdogs in every game we play but we need to give ourselves a bit of a chance going into games. That won't happen when you find yourself down to 10 men after 20 minutes."

He added: "In the second half it was a case of going out and showing a bit of pride, which we did, but that's just not good enough.

Clelland vowed to make changes for Saturday's home clash with leaders Kilwinning Rangers and said: " Once again, we will be massive underdogs but as soon as we can get our discipline sorted out, we will be all right."
