Scorers: McKinnon, McDougall

BSC GLASGOW fought back bravely to push Championship side Morton all the way in an entertaining friendly at Airdrie’s Excelsior Stadium on Tuesday night.

The SFA Challenge Cup holders – missing six established top team players – were 3-0 down after just 34 minutes as last season’s deputy keeper Bruno Maltoni had a first-half to forget against Jim Duffy’s League One winners.

Brilliant Morton prospect Thomas Orr, just 18, cashed in on errors from the gutted stand-in Italian shotstopper to grab an opportunist hat-trick and leave BSC looking down and out.

Yet to their credit BSC battled back before the break and Ross McKinnon, who has returned looking fitter and in sparkling form, rifled a 20-yard shot into the top corner to cut the deficit.

The Lowland League side restarted with 19-year-old Joe Wilton earning his second appearance of the pre-season between the sticks and within 90 seconds it was 3-2.

McKinnon whipped in a trademark vicious free-kick that found the head of David Cameron and although Morton keeper Grant Adam, brother of Stoke City and Scotland star Charlie, made a stunning stop Chris McDougall followed up to score.

BSC had the better of an excellent second period but Adam denied trialist David Lawrence and Callum Home and ‘Ton edged the win.

Afterwards head coach Iain King was upbeat, though, and said: “Bruno had one of those nights in what can be a very cruel position.

“We should remember, though, that he was in goal for us in the SFA Challenge Cup semi-final win over Edinburgh City last season when he was a great deputy for the injured Iain Stewart.

“After the setbacks we reacted superbly and whilst we expected less possession against a team of Morton’s class when we did have the ball we used it well.

“We had good performances throughout the team but again the three Under-20s players Joe Wilton, Ross Geddes and Riccardo Corrieri deserve a special mention.

“Geddes is growing up with every training session and game he has with us and looks a real prospect.

“It was also great to see Drew Ramsay get 90 minutes under his belt at left-back, he is getting fitter every day and we feel he will be a big signing for us this season.”
