That was our worst ever slams ‘Port boss Baikie

Tayport will be looking to bounce back from Saturday’s disappointing defeat when they travel to Sauchie tomorrow on East Super League business.

The loss at home to Fauldhouse saw ’Port tumble back down to the foot of the table, albeit level on points with two other clubs.

Boss Dave Baikie didn’t mix his words.

“That was probably as poor as I’ve seen us,” said Baikie.

“We just weren’t at the races and gave them too much time on the ball.

“Ryan Suttie’s dismissal towards half-time obviously didn’t help our cause.

“Going in one down at the break, with only ten men, meant the second half was going to be an uphill struggle and, to compound things, they scored five minutes after the re-start.”

Baikie will be doing everything in his power to ensure that the players get back on track at Sauchie.

After all, a win could propel Tayport right up the table as 10 clubs are currently within two points of each other.

Sauchie sit two points above Tayport but are mid-table in the 16-team division.

They lost 3-1 at Hill o’Beath last weekend and are having a mixed season, losing four and winning three of their seven fixtures to date.

‘Port welcomed back Matt Adam against Fauldhouse and he will enhance the squad and provide an attacking threat.

John Ovenstone made his debut last week, but was sent off late in the match.

He will be available for selection at Sauchie, though.
