POLLOK have now gone four league games without scoring a goal after losing 4-0 to Auchinleck Talbot on Saturday.

During the clash, skipper Paul Lovering was sent off, diminishing any hope of a comeback for the visitors.

Lok now have a chance to start afresh when they face Cambuslang Rangers in the first round of the Scottish junior cup.

Kick off is 2.30pm.

Speaking on the club’s website, assistant manager Stephen Docherty, said: “Against Super League teams we have to score goals and we are sitting with two points. So it is a reality check for the all the boys in there.

“It is a new team we have put together and they have maybe thought we were better than what we were but now we are back on the training park”.

On Wednesday, the Newlandsfield side visit Renfrew in the sectional league cup final at Maryhill with a 7.45pm kick off.

At Hampden on Saturday, Ian Watt scored the only goal of the game to secure Queen’s Park’s victory against Clyde.

The striker scored in style — with a 30-yard-scorcher on the 27th minute.

Anthony Quinn scuppered a chance to double the Spiders’ lead on 42 minute and Paul Hay missed another good chance after the break.

The Bully Wee had a chance to equalise in the 78th minute, however Stefan McCluskey’s volley flew past the post.

The last chance of the game fell to Jamie Longworth, who let fly with a speculative effort which went wide.

On Saturday, Queen’s Park, who currently sit in third place in division three, will face a tough trip to league leaders Elgin City.

A win could see the Spiders leapfrog their rivals and take top spot.

Meanwhile, 21-year-old midfielder Paul McGinn will be departing Hampden after earning a contract with St Mirren. This means he will follow in the footsteps of his brothers, after 17-year-old John joined the Buddies in the summer, while Stephen was a product of the Paisley club before departing for Watford.
