JOHNSTONE Burgh manager Jamie McKim praised his players’ ruthless streak as they made it six wins on the bounce against Saltcoats Victoria.

The Keanie Park team cruised to a 6-0 victory at Campbell Park on Saturday to secure another three points in Conference A of the West of Scotland Football League.

And McKim is hoping the impressive performance is a sign of things to come.

He told Gazette Sport: “I couldn’t be any happier with my players. They have all given it everything for the last few months in training and in games. I’ve not got a bad word to say about any of them.

“Every weekend, you want to keep that momentum up, especially going into this stage of the season, so we’re delighted with how it’s going.”

Burgh skipper Stuart Fyfe got the visitors off to a flier after just two minutes as he headed home from a corner-kick before a devastating 10-minute blitz from McKim’s men ahead of the half-time break made life comfortable.

Jojo Gillespie scored a brace to make it seven goals in his last six games and 13 for the season, with further strikes from Ryan Wallace and Brian Connor stretching Burgh’s lead to 5-0 before the interval.

Jason Hardie completed the scoring in the 77th minute.

McKim welcomed the chance to rest some of his key players at this vital stage of the season.

He added: “The game was done by half-time. We aren’t going to lose that amount of goals in 45 minutes.

“We had a 10-minute spell that killed the game off and some of the stuff we played was fantastic, especially on a tricky surface.

“It gave me the opportunity to bring some players on and give a rest to those who needed it.

“The biggest positives for me were going down there and getting the points, getting the confidence up with some goals but also giving some players some time to recover.”

A tricky trip to third-placed Whitletts Victoria this weekend is the start of a difficult run of fixtures for Burgh but McKim insists his players will be full of confidence.

“We’re delighted with how it’s going but this is the run of fixtures coming up that’s going to be make or break for us,” he said.

“We’re playing a lot of the teams around us and above us but we’re going into it in the best shape that we can.”

Kick-off at Dam Park on Saturday is at 1.30pm.
