JOHNSTONE Burgh manager Jamie McKim hopes he can get his first win on home soil on Saturday against Carluke Rovers, after drawing 2-2 with Vale of Leven this weekend.

Lee McGeachy opened the scoring for the visitors, before Jack Heron equalised for Burgh on 38 minutes.

Andrew Clark looked to have given Brian Brown’s side victory on 82 minutes, but Heron came up with the goods again and scored in the 89th minute.

The Johnstone side take on Carluke Rovers on Saturday at Keanie Park, a team McKim has already beaten in his tenure as manager.

But he’s hoping to get off the mark at Keanie Park, and wants to make their home ground a tough place to come.

He said: “We’re at home for the next two of our three games, so we need to make it into a hard place to come.

“I’m just glad we never lost, but the more you reflect on it the more you’re disappointed you didn’t get the win.

“Although we’ve beaten them already that doesn’t mean anything going into this game, they’re a strong side.

“We know what we’re coming up against but we need to get that first home win.

“It’s good to see the boys coming in are having a good impact and are gelling well together, and I’m hoping that carries on into these games.”

McKim continues to shape his squad since becoming manager in January, with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Chris McQuade signing at the weekend.

But goalkeeper Fraser Wilson hung up his gloves after 10 years at Burgh, and McKim said his influence would be missed at Keanie Park.

He said: “It’s disappointing to lose someone with that much experience. It was good to have him in and around the changing room and in training, helping out the younger guys, as we’ve got a young boys on board. His experience was valuable, but the time was right for him to go, and we have to respect that.”

Johnstone Burgh go again at home against Carluke Rovers as they look to climb up the table, kick-off is scheduled for 2pm at Keanie Park.
