Three on the bounce for Gretna

The Raydale club defeated Gala Fairydean on Wednesday night and made it three wins on the trot for the first time since 2018.

Speedy winger Lewis Bell poked home the opener for 2008 following some pinball inside the Gala penalty area.

Danny Galbraith almost levelled for the Borders outfit with a rocketing 35 yard strike straight at Gretna keeper Ali Adams, but Adams got his fingertips to the ball to divert it, and it crashed against the crossbar.

In-form striker Russell Currie doubled the host’s advantage with a delightful dink over the onrushing Gala keeper. Super sub Aiden Munro fired in Gretna’s third of the evening with a 25 yard wonder strike.

Lewis Hall netted a consolation for Gala in extra time to deny Gretna a clean sheet.

The Anvils look revitalised, and they return to Raydale this Saturday full of confidence to face Tranent Juniors.

After the game Gretna assistant manager Robbie Park said: “To a man, we are a really good cohesive unit right now, the boys are starting to gel and it’s starting to show on the pitch.

“Their (Lewis Turner and Ali Adams) experience definitely adds a lot.

“We’re starting to creep up the table now, we’re clawing back at the goal difference and it’s important we keep that going.

“We need to focus more on ourselves, we know Tranent are a very good team.

“We know it’s going to be a tough test, but it will be a good football match, we hope the fans will come out in their numbers and get behind the team.

“We’re going to keep playing positive attacking football and the results are starting to show.”

IT was derby delight last weekend when Gretna travelled to face Dalbeattie Star in a must-win Lowland league crunch clash.

Lewis Bell hammered a right-footed shot into the net to open the scoring, and in extra time Mikey Mbewe and Rhys Caves both chipped-in to make it three.
