Renfrew continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 2-0 victory over Kello Rovers at New Western Park on Saturday.

Second-half goals from Jamie Docherty and Kieran Healy secured the win as Kello Rovers’ Ross Costello saw red for a two-footed tackle and manager Geoff Patterson was given his marching orders.

It was Frew’s third win in as many league games. Renfrew have also gone through six games unbeaten in the Sectional League Cup ahead of the semi-final against Premier League side Pollok at New Western Park tonight (Wednesday), kick-off 7.30pm.

It was the hosts who started on the front foot. Good wing play from Darren Jones allowed him space to cross for Docherty but he nodded wide.

Kello created their first chance five minutes into the game with a good passing move, Greg Miller found space for the shot but it was well saved by Danny McLeay in the Renfrew net.

The first half was a scrappy affair with neither side really testing the opposition goalkeeper with any degree of difficulty.

However the second half exploded into life as Renfrew stepped up the pressure to break the deadlock.

Their efforts were rewarded when, in the 62nd minute, David Quinn was brought down in the box by Ally Smith.

Docherty stepped up and made no mistake to score his sixth goal of the season as he sent Kello keeper Ryan Dunsmuir the wrong way.

A moment of madness from Costello saw him ordered off for a two-footed lunge.

Kello’s manager then received his marching orders as well, it wasn’t the first time ref Connor Ashwood had been over to speak to Patterson and he was sent from the dugout.

Frew’s second of the game came just two minutes after Costello’s red. A deflected Kieran Healy free kick wrong footed Dunsmuir to give Renfrew a two-goal cushion.

Renfrew cruised to victory from there to make it nine points out of nine and go joint top of the Super League First Division alongside Petershill and Cambuslang Rangers.
