After three straight defeats Culter co-manager Andy Gibson was delighted with the performance of his side in the 5-1 victory over Lewis United.

United had been joint-top of the Superleague going into this weekend’s round of matches and Gibson was full of praise for his side’s battling spirit.

He said: “It was a great result. We did well after going behind in the first half and the conditions also made it difficult to play football.

“I felt we started slowly and our goalkeeper made a couple of good saves to keep the scores level, but after that we got stronger and finished the game really well.”

The result pushed Culter up to seventh in the Superleague table, with games in hand over all the teams who lie above them.

This week sees Culter begin the defence of the McLeman Cup when they host Banks O’ Dee in the first round at Crombie Park.

Banks O’ Dee are in poor form but Gibson is wary of the threat they might pose.

He said: “We are now looking forward to the game this Saturday and although Banks O’ Dee have lost a few recently, I know we are in for a tough game.

“They have a young side and have a lot of pace so we will have to be on our game and hopefully try to keep a clean sheet.”
