TERRY HEWITT was in buoyant mood following Sauchie's victory over Carnoustie Panmure last Saturday.

Hewitt, who has proved a popular figure with the fans following his recent arrival at Beechwood Park, was delighted with the performance Sauchie put in as they claimed three vital points.

The defender believes they could even have won by more than the single goal which secured victory.

Hewitt told Advertiser Sport: "It was a tight game in the first half until Jordan Orru won the penalty. Their manager wasn't happy about and was accusing Jordan of throwing himself to the ground but it was a stonewaller.

"In the second half we eased off when we should have maybe gone for the kill. We should have scored a couple more, and if we had it wouldn't have been an unfair reflection of the game.

"We let them back into it a little bit but we defended really well. It was a big win."

Having backed up their Scottish Cup victory over Largs Thistle with three points against Carnoustie, Hewitt is desperate to keep the momentum going and is targeting maximum points from their next two games, at home to Broughty and away at Kennoway.

He said: "The Broughty game is massive. You should be looking to win all your home games. You want it to be a hard place for teams to come and pick points up.

"Kennoway away is huge as well. We should be looking at six points from those games.

"With the squad we have I don't think we deserve to be in the position we are in just now but it's up to us to get us out of that bottom three.

"A couple of wins will get us right up the table so it's up to the players now to make sure we do that and start getting towards the position we feel we should be in."

The centre-back is loving being part of the Beechwood Park dressing room and says confidence is high among the Sauchie squad.

He added: "The dressing room just now is great. It's easy to go to training because everyone is so upbeat.

"The confidence was always there but I think it was just about getting a bit of luck.

"We have kicked on over the past couple of weeks. Everybody is doing well."
