MATCH REPORT :: ROVERS TAKE BSC TO SCHOOL

BSC Glasgow :: Brilliantly finished by Ciaran Johnston for his first goal of the new seasonBSC GLASGOW learned some lessons about the gulf of two divisions as League One Albion Rovers notched up an eventually comfortable friendly win at Airdrie’s Excelsior Stadium on Saturday.

Rovers had too much nous and class for BSC who defended superbly for an hour before hot prospect Yamikani Misanjo sped away to grab the opener for Darren Young’s side.

Scott McBride and John Gemmell made it three for last season’s League Two champions before an excellent BSC counter engineered by Aaron Connolly and brilliantly finished by Ciaran Johnston for his first goal of the new season.

Gemmell crashed home a harsh last-gasp penalty to seal the win for the Coatbridge side who looked slick and strong.

After the highs of the 3-1 win at Queen’s Park this was a performance that didn’t reach those levels from BSC.

Yet the truth is that this time the gulf in the divisions showed with too many key BSC players not at their best.

Assistant-manager Craig Young said: “There’s no need to be too downhearted, they start their campaign next week and they were very strong.

“They are better than us, simple as that. Yet we have had an excellent pre-season so far.

“The players are getting fitter, our new skipper Davie Gray got his first 90 minutes and over the piece we actually had some excellent defensive displays.

“We will take the positives and move onto the Kilwinning Rangers tournament this weekend, that will be a batter gauge of where we are for the start of the Lowland League campaign.”
