Match Report


Today we welcomed back Gala this time in league action. East Kilbride started strong and looked to get in front early on to settle the nerves after last week's nail biting Scottish cup tie.
It took the home side just 12 minutes to take the lead when a whipping cross from Coll into the area was cleared only to land at the feet of Longworth on the 18 yard line who fired the ball home to put his side in front.
East Kilbride settled into the game and started to play some lovely football with all players getting in on the action.
With chances from Longworth and Malcolm coming close without success it took the home side 2 minutes before the break to get the second.
Sean winter broke into the box to set up Paul Woods when he steps to the left passed the defender and slots the ball home through the goal keepers legs.
Half time 2-0
The second half started just as the first half finished with East Kilbride taking control right from the start.
On the 53rd minute East Kilbride made it 3 when Brady split the defense to put Paul woods in who as calm as you like chips the keeper meets it at the other side and taps it home.
A late tackle stopped the celebrations when Gala defender needlessly tackled woods after the goal sending him hurling to the ground.
Woods reacted out of character and got himself in the referees book along with Rovers 2 center half's.
Craig Malcolm also found himself in the thick of it which also resulted in a yellow card.
Once the game got back underway the away side looked to get themselves back into the game with a couple of chances on goal but never looked like troubling McGinley too much.
East Kilbride seen the game out comfortably and picked up another clean sheet.
Next up the club are away to Stirling university where they look to carry on their recent form to keep the pressure on Kelty hearts who sit on top with just 1 point in it.
