“To go into a big game like Saturdays visit to Fauldhouse, you want a full strength squad and options to chose from however we had now few than 7 players injured and several players struggling with niggly aches and pains.

The timing of these injuries could not have come at a worse time of the season with every point absolutely crucial.

We started the game really well on Saturday and took the lead after 44 seconds with a superb finish from Marc Scott, who himself has only just returned from injury. That was injury was to come back to haunt him and the team when he pulled up after 15 minutes and he had to be replaced.

There was nothing in the game until a big decision was made by the match official in the 62 minute of the game when skipper Danny Millar was sent off for foul on Fauldhouse striker. We all felt that it was poor decision to issue a red card because Danny did everything he could to pull out of the challenge which was just over the half way line and not a clear goal scoring opportunity. That decision proved costly, and we went on to lose the game 4-1.

We had two or three opportunities in the second half, however we just lacked some quality to deliver the right ball into the right players or areas. The negative side of the second half performance was the lack of discipline that crept in the latter stages of the game which is extremely disappointing

We now have two games left and nothing has changed, we still need to pick up a minimum of a point to ensure that we can retain our Super League status which we are confident that we can do.”
