RENFREW co-manager Colin Clark admits his side have got what they deserve in their last two defeats and says the results should serve as a wake up call for Frew.

The New Western Park side started the Super League First Division campaign in fine style, winning six of their first eight league games.

But a 4-0 league defeat to Cambuslang and Saturday’s 4-1 loss to Larkhall Thistle in the West of Scotland Cup has threatened to derail Frew.

Clark admits his side can have no complaints over those results and conceded he had seen the defeats coming with performances slipping prior to the Cambuslang tie.

He said: “We’ve had two really poor results, but we can have no complaints because they were two really poor performances.

“To be fair in both games we haven’t conceded loads of chances, but the goals are coming from our mistakes. The teams didn’t have to carve us open to score.

“We’re making horrible defensive mistakes, we’re just not doing the basics right defensively which is killing us.

“It’s definitely a wake up call for the players. It has been coming in all honesty. We had been winning games without really being at it before these two games.”

Renfrew have an immediate chance for redemption as they face a trip to Larkhall in the league on Saturday.

Clark is under no illusions that Thistle will make life difficult and his players will have to be up for the fight.

There is some good news for Frew, who were without a recognised striker on Saturday, with Scott Morton set to return.

He said: “We had no strikers on Saturday. We’re struggling with injuries. We were lacking a cutting edge.

“But Scott Morton should be back for us this week. The pitch at Larkhall isn’t the greatest. It’s a bit tight and they use a long throw to bombard you.

“They go back to front really quickly. We have to go there and roll our sleeves up, it is not a place for the faint hearted.

“We have to stand up and be counted, especially on the back of two really poor results.”
