A big, big win for Lanark away to Carluke today.
Lanark took the lead around half an hour into the game when Danny burns outpaced his man down the left, bursting into the box and squaring the ball, the keeper was commited, leaving Kris Jarvie to knock the ball into the back of the net.
Lanark leading 1-0 come the break, within the first ten minutes of the half Carluke were reduced to ten men when the number two was sent off for a second booking. Lanark made the extra man count through Danny Burns, in a similar position to where he squared the ball for Jarvie in the first half, he finished well from close range.
Carluke hadn't really managed to trouble Lanark throughout the game, brought a good save from the keeper with a stinging drive from the edge of the box after Alan McCrum uncharacteristically lost his footing, about the only mistake he made all game.
Carluke will have perhaps counted themselves lucky to finish the game with ten men after a number of incidents which on another day would not have been punished so leniently. Player-Manager Brian Johnston was the victim of a shocking two footed lunge in the corner of the pitch, the player did take the ball but it was a cynical challenge. In a seperate incident in the same area of the park a Carluke player raised his hands to Ryan Docherty but it was unpunished.
A much needed victory for the Yowes, all the better to get it against their local rivals on their own patch.
Good performances throughout the team, Danny took his goal well as well as the assist. Alan Murdoch was immense at the back, mopping up everything that came his way. John Renwick followed up his goal last week with a very impressive display today, Davie Collins also had a solid game, a no nonsense display. Could really write a few lines about everyone who played, well done to all.
