GREENOCK Juniors were unable to go forth and prosper at Ravenscraig on Saturday, as the 10-man home side slumped to a third loss in as many matches.

Player-manager Stevie Mooney had stressed the importance of the meeting with Forth Wanderers in his pre-match comments, but his team couldn"t quite rise to the challenge, despite a valiant effort after losing Jonathan Donnelly on the stroke of half-time. They went down 1-0.
