The centre-back – who turned 19 last week – played the full 90 minutes at the Peninsula Stadium, registering his third clean sheet in six League Two appearances.
The win saw Michael Duff’s side move up to sixth place in the fourth tier of English football – two points adrift of the automatic promotion spots – having accumulated 14 points from their eight games to-date.
Elsewhere, Sean McLoughlin maintained his record of playing every minute of St Mirren’s SPL campaign this term with another 90 minutes away at Ross County at the weekend.
However, the Irishman was unable to help his side avoid a third straight defeat as Marcus Fraser’s dramatic injury-time strike earned a precious three points for the hosts with a 2-1 win. The Staggies’ captain finished from close-range late on to sicken Saints, who thought they’d done enough to earn a point after Tony Andreu levelled following Ross Stewart’s opener.
Nouha Dicko endured a debut to forget for Vitesse as they went down to a 5-0 defeat at the hands of PSV Eindhoven on Saturday.
The striker was introduced into the action in the 58th-minute with Vitesse – who started the day top of the Eredivisie table – already trailing 3-0 courtesy of a Donyell Malen hat-trick. And the former Arsenal striker added two more to his tally from the penalty spot in the last ten minutes to complete the scoring.
