SAUCHIE captain Brian Morgan believes his side's improved discipline helped them to victory as they saw off local rivals Camelon in the Scottish Cup last Saturday.

Morgan got on the scoresheet as the Wee County outfit kept their cup dream alive.

And the midfielder admitted it all came down to which of the sides was more willing to battle their way to victory.

Morgan told Advertiser Sport: "It came down to desire and in the end we just wanted it more than them.

"They've done us over a few times and we hadn't beaten them in about five years.

"They're a stuffy team and they pull you down to their level at times so we are really pleased we were able to overcome that.

"At the start of the season our discipline wasn't great, but Fraser has been gradually drilling better discipline into us. We've cut out a lot of the silly bookings and that's helping us get results.

"In cup games it's all about the result but we're really pleased with the performance as well. We played well and scored some really good goals."

The skipper's stunning early strike set the tone for Sauchie's afternoon, and he revealed it is among the best he has scored in his career.

He said: "I've hit a few good goals in my time, but that's one of the best.

"Fraser keeps telling me to have a go more because he reckons I've got a good shot on me. When the chance came I just hit it and I'm delighted it went in."

Sauchie's victory set up a fourth-round tie with Bellshill Athletic, and Morgan is hopeful that the momentum they have now can carry them to victory in that tie and beyond into the remainder of their Super League campaign.

He added: "I don't know much about Bellshill but, in the Scottish Cup, anything can happen. The holders Glenafton got put out last week by Kirkintilloch Rob Roy so that just shows you that anyone can beat anyone in this competition.

"We've been up and down this season but in our last few games we've had some decent results.

"This was another good win and we've got a bit of momentum behind us now so hopefully we can start climbing the table."
