ELATED Troon FC assistant boss Matt Maley admits he wishes his team didn't have to down their tools this week after taking their goals tally to a whopping 17 goals in four games.

The Seasiders hammered Larkhall Thistle 5-2 on Saturday to leave them in third spot in the Super First Division, nine points behind leaders Petershill, over whom they have two games in hand.

But they have an enforced break on Saturday owing to the Quadrungular Junior International Tournament being played in Glasgow, finishing at Pollok FC on Saturday.

Maley, who was appointed number two to Jim Kirkwood in the summer said: "We played really well on Saturday and I don't like to single out players but Scott McLean (who scored four of the goals) had a great game. We signed him from Killie Under-20s in the summer and he has been a great addition to the squad. But it was a real team effort on Saturday.

"Earlier in the season we were not taking our chances but now we are cashing in on them and you can see that in the results. We are still conceding a few goal and that is something we have to work on."

However Maley added: "The break has come at totally the wrong time for us, we are on such a roll and we are well placed in the league. But we will have to keep working hard and prepare four our next league game at Kilsyth a week on Saturday."

The assistant was again delighted with the backing of the fans.

He said: "We had good support again on Saturday. and I think people know what we are trying to do and that we have a good squad here."
