Tayport look to bounce back over Bluebell

After exiting the East of Scotland Cup last weekend, Tayport will tomorrow turn their attention back to East Premier League business and the visit of Dundonald Bluebell.

The sides have already met this season, with Bluebell winning by the odd goal in five at Moorside Park, in the second match of the league season

Now, the two sides sit on 29 points, behind Dalkeith Thistle, St. Andrews United and Montrose Roselea.

Boss Dave Baikie will be keen to see his side move clear of Dundonald tomorrow afternoon.

The manager will demand a better display from his charges on Saturday, having been hugely disappointed by the cup performance.

“There weren’t really any positives and we lacked leadership in the team,” he said.

“All told, we didn’t deserve to win the game and can have no complaints about Jeanfield winning through.”

“We played okay for 20 minutes, then the opposition had a man sent off and we failed to take advantage.

“There were a couple of second half chances, but we didn’t get in behind their defence or test the Jeanfield goalkeeper at all.

“We found it difficult to make the play and we lacked the guile to break them down when they sat in.”

At least Baikie will have more options at his disposal against Dundonald.

Central defender Clark Kay returns, while Alan Tulleth was cup-tied. Both were badly missed.

Kick-off at the Canniepairt is scheduled for 2.30pm.
