Pollok returned from Arthurlie’s Dunterlie Park with their biggest victory at that ground since 1975, making the short journey back to Newlands with a 6-1 scoreline.

Arthurlie opened the scoring in the 19th minute through Gary Carroll, before they were reduced to 10 men on 27 minutes, Graham Girvan sent off after kicking Michael Daly.

He was joined in the showers by team-mate Ryan McGregor in the 51st minute when he received a straight red for impeding Daly in the area.

Tam Hanlon stepped up to restore parity with the resultant spot-kick in this exciting Premier Super League clash.

’Lok took the lead in the 77th minute, their trialist midfielder controlling Gary McCann’s cross on his chest before volleying in.

Liam Rowan doubled the advantage two minutes later with a well placed front post volley from Robbie Winters’ low cross.

Davie Winters blasted in from 12 yards before brother Robbie netted a crisp finish.

MacKenzie’s late header completed the scoring.

Fifth placed ’Lok have no league game this Saturday.
