FRASER DUNCAN says Sauchie’s stunning Scottish Cup victory over Largs can give them the confidence to turn their season around.

The Wee County side have struggled in the Super League, but produced a fine display to make sure of their progress to the third round.

The manager praised his players following their win, insisting it was the kind of result they deserve after a tough period.

Duncan told Advertiser Sport: “I’m chuffed to bits. I said during the week how important it was to get the win.

"I think we played well and although there were a few shaky moments, the most important thing was to get through to the next round and we have managed to do that. I’m delighted for the players because they deserve a result like that.

“We eased off after we scored our first. We took our foot right off the gas and made it easy for them to get back in the game, but we picked up again and our fitness showed in the end.

“It will give us a massive lift in terms of believing in ourselves. Now we just need to find the right formula.

“We did well but I’m not going to get too carried away. There is still a lot of work to do and lots of improvements to be made. We need to push forward now.”

Duncan now wants his players to take the momentum from their cup victory into Saturday’s league meeting with Carnoustie at Beechwood Park.

The Juniors’ boss also revealed that he plans to have some new signings in place for the encounter as he looks to bolster his threadbare squad.

He added: “The priority this week is now to make sure we are all fit and get a few things in place for the Carnoustie game next week.

"We do want to get a couple of signings in this week, but we have to make sure they are right for the club.

“The next two weeks are massive, and with it being two home games six points are a requirement. We will work hard in training and make sure we are ready.”
