Renfrew manager Jimmy Quigley insists his players have set a new standard for the rest of the season after earning a point at Drumchapel United on Friday night.

The visitors were unlucky not to secure victory against their promotion-chasing opponents after dominating proceedings.

Quigley’s men had two shots cleared off the line and missed a host of other chances.

Jojo Gillespie had fired the New Western Park outfit into an early lead and they looked on course for an impressive win as the scoreline remained at 1-0 with just a few minutes remaining.

However, Jack Breen stole a point for the recently-crowned Strathclyde Demolition Cup winners by netting a late equaliser.

Renfrew are seven points clear of the First Division relegation places but have played more matches than their rivals in the chasing pack.

The likes of Neilston and St Roch’s have eight games in hand over Renfrew but Quigley insists his players will continue to focus on themselves.

He told Gazette Sport: “I thought we were excellent against Drumchapel from start to finish.

“They are a really good side but we had chances to score four or five.

“In the first half, we defended well and scored a good goal and limited them to shots from range and, in the second half, we had them camped in their own half.

“We had two efforts cleared off the line and had another few opportunities where you are expecting to hit the target and then we got hit with a sucker punch.

“Even in the last minute, Andy Skinner has gone through and beat the goalkeeper but a defender has got back to clear it off the line when we’re all away celebrating.

“It was a free hit for us with Drumchapel going for promotion but we have set a standard now and we need to keep working hard.

“If we keep playing the way we did the other night, somebody is going to be on the end of a good victory for us.”

Renfrew aren’t back in action until February 24, when they host Blantyre Victoria, and Quigley admits the break comes at a bad time for his team.

He said: “Unfortunately, we don’t have a game for a couple of weeks, so we’ll need to keep the intensity up at training and then focus on the seven cup finals we’ve got left.

“We’ll look at getting a couple of friendlies sorted to keep the guys ticking over.”
