EAST Kilbride will have to wait for another week to win the title after being held to a goalless draw by Cumbernauld Colts.

Despite Stuart Malcolm’s team carving open countless chances at K Park they couldn’t find a way past Colts stopper Jordan Pettigrew.

At Innerleithen East Stirlingshire goal hero Connor Greene believes his team will be serious challengers next season.

The 23-year-old centre half, who netted a brace in Shire’s 3-0 win over Vale of Leithen, said: “We have done well since the new gaffer Derek Ure came in and we’ve pushed our way up the table.

“Next season we can be up there competing for the title - not just seeing out the remaining games with nothing to play for.”

David McCaughie was Shire’s other scorer at Victoria Park.

Dalbeattie Star moved clear of the relegation spot after coming from behind to shock Kelty Hearts.

Barry Ferguson’s team had gone in front through new signing Sean McKirdy, but Star responded with goals from Ben Irving and Lewis Todd.

Bottom side Whitehill Welfare are all but relegated after going down 2-1 against Gretna at Raydale.

Kevin Connolly and Jake Smith scored for the home team before Scott Wright netted a late consolation.

Civil Service Strollers moved into third despite losing a last-minute goal in the 2-2 draw with Gala Fairydean Rovers.

Jordan Hopkinson and David Churchill had twice given Strollers the lead only for Hibernian loanee Ruari Paton to level both times.

Gala boss Dean Shanks said: “Civil have shown where hard work and good organisation can take you in this league yet I thought we were a match for them today and we deserved the draw.”

Edusport Academy got back to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Edinburgh University at Peffermill.

Mathew Flynn and Gavin Stokes both scored in the second half.
