RENFREW co-manager Colin Clark was delighted to see his side end their Petershill hoodoo on Saturday, writes Jack Crawford

Goals from Scott Morton and Bob Campbell were enough for the Frew as they prevailed over the Springburn outfit.

Peasy have been a bogey side for Renfrew in recent years and won both Premiership meetings last term.

Morton scored his seventh goal of the season after capitalising on a mix-up between Chris Ketterer and goalkeeper Andrew Wilson before stroking the ball into an empty net.

The second arrived on 65 minutes when Craig Dallas used the windy conditions at Petershill Park to his advantage as his corner landed on the head of Campbell, who headed in at the back-post.

There were chances for the hosts in the final stages but Danny McLeay kept his clean sheet intact to cement the three points for Renfrew.

The result lifts Frew to fourth in the Championship and Clark believes his side took their chances at good times to settle the game.

He said: “We’ve played an awful lot better than that against them and got beat, so we’ll take it all day.

“They had their new manager in, so there was probably a few there playing for their futures, so we expected a bit of an onslaught in the opening stages.

“The surface was good but the wind was really strong and hard to deal with.

“It wasn’t comfortable by any stretch but we scored at good points of the game.”

The fixtures settle down now for Junior sides after a busy start to the season which saw most teams play three games a week for a month.

It’s something which Clark feels his squad has struggled with as they prepare to welcome second-placed Cumbernauld United this weekend.

He said: “The schedule has been horrendous.

“The last couple of games against Craigmark and Neilston, the boys had nothing in the tank.

“It’s been difficult and we’ve not came through unscathed.

“The positive is we’ve taken five points from nine when we haven’t been playing well.

“Cumbernauld are flying and they’ll be looking forward to the game.”
