A run of wins can shoot the Saints out of sight

Ian Barrett has called on his Saints to hit a run of good form and fire themselves to Super League safety.

Saints remain deep in relegation trouble having watched sides around them pick up crucial wins over the past few days.

Tayport took all three points from Kelty Hearts on Saturday while Fauldhouse crept off the bottom of the league with a 1-0 win over Camelon in midweek.

But Saints know their safety is in their own hands, and the Barnetts Park boss wants to see his side go out and secure it.

He said: “If we can go on a good run in the last five games and take at least nine points from them then we’ll be in the mix.

“We could have done with Fauldhouse drawing with Camelon but their win means Camelon are not out of it either, although they have a lot of games in hand.”

At the weekend Saints scored four at home against Sauchie, but that wasn’t enough to take full points, with their visitors matching the goal tally.

“From our point of view, with Tayport and Fauldhouse both winning this week, it was important we didn’t get beat,” said the gaffer.

This weekend Saints host Kelty.

“Tayport went behind to them and maybe Kelty just switched off after scoring,” said Barrett. “We’ll need to be prepared because Keltymay react to that result.”
