Girvan manager Matt Maley says his side are looking forward to the end of midweek games as his depleted side lost 3-2 to Maryhill.

Girvan found themselves 2-0, down early on at Hamilton Park, however Kieran Balfour netted from an Alan Orr cross to cut the deficit before the break.

They then got back on level terms just after it when Ross Clark headed home but Darren Kennedy regained the visitors lead to make it 3-2.

Speaking to the Advertiser, Maley said: “We put enough into the game to get at least a point but at this level if you do not take your chances, you do not win your games.

“But it is difficult to criticise the squad given we have so many out, with such a depleted squad, and we are just trying to patch things together. “

Next up for Girvan is a tie in the senior Scottish Cup away to Tynecastle, with Maley looking forward to the break before it.

“I am really glad that the midweek games are finished now and we can get that midweek recovery time.

“It gives us a good chance to dust ourselves off a bit, go for it on Saturday and enjoy the experience.”
