RENFREW co-manager Martin Ferry remains confident that his side will stay in the Premiership despite losing 2-0 to Petershill on Saturday. 

The Frew created chances but were outdone by a well-taken goal from Lewis Crawford and a 93rd minute clincher from Scott Cameron in the battle at the bottom of the Premiership. 

And Ferry wishes that his side could have tested Peasy goalkeeper Mark Quinn after getting into promising positions. 

He said: “We started really well then it became a wee bit scrappy. They’ve scored out the blue where the boy scores a peach. 

“We didn’t test the goalkeeper enough - we were getting into good positions but missing the target. 

The Gazette:

Renfrew remain just two points above the drop zone 

“The effort from the boys has been superb and if we continue to do what we’re doing we’ll pick up enough points and we’ll be fine. 

“I’d be disappointed if we hadn’t played well but the performances, energy levels and effort are all there.” 

Next up for Ferry’s side is another important game at the foot of the table against Kilbirnie Ladeside at Valefield Park. 

Kilbirnie sit just two points below Renfrew and a win could see Frew move as many as eight points clear of the bottom placed side.
