Neilston can take heart from their gutsy performance against “cup kings” Auchinleck Talbot – despite being on the receiving end of a sore scoreline.That’s the view of co-boss Chris Cameron after they suffered a bruising South Challenge Cup third-round defeat at the hands of the Premier Division side at Beechwood Park.The Farmer’s Boys more than held their own against Talbot, almost taking the lead in the first half, but spurning a couple of well-worked opportunities.That profligacy came back to bite them when the hosts netted through an unfortunate own goal just before the break.The opener seemed to suck the belief out of the visitors, with Auchinleck going on to win comfortably thanks to efforts from Ross Taylor and Mark Shankland.Cameron was still upbeat after the match, insisting his players showed they can match top flight teams when they’re at their best.He told Renfrewshire Live Sport: “It’s always a very tough place to go and get a result.

There’s no doubt they are the cup kings at our level.“We played really well in the first half and had two great chances to take the lead.“Unfortunately, we didn’t take them and they scored an own goal just before half-time.“That was tough to take because we’d played so well.

The boys maybe felt in the dressing room at the break that they’d missed a big opportunity to cause an upset.“They stepped it up a gear in the second half and there’s no complaints about the final scoreline.

Their right winger was superb throughout and they deserved to go through in the end.“I’m pleased we had a real go and we more than matched them in the first half.
