FURIOUS Troon assistant boss Matt Maley hit out this week after a hugely controversial penalty scuppered their chances of taking a point.

The Seasiders were level at 1-1 with Petershill at the end of normal time in a Championship game.

However, two minutes into injury-time, Peasy were awarded a penalty, which they converted to win.

He said: "There wasn't even a foul and I couldn't believe a penalty was awarded. We thought we were going to take something from the game but that decision cost us any chance of it. I will be playing the incident back on tape but to me there was no way it was a penalty."

The number two believes his side played well and said: "We had some opportunities to win the match but didn't take them and we thought we were at least going to take something from it. So that's really disappointing."

Maley, meanwhile is happy with the progress being made by his team following their promotion from the Super First Division and said: "The manager Jim Kirkwood and I both feel we have competed well against the top teams, with the exception of Kilwinning and that is pleasing."

Saturday sees the Portland Park side make the short trip to New Western Park to face Renfrew and Maley said: "They have been struggling this season and we must go up there and look to take three points."
