TERRY HEWITT insisted his Sauchie teammates wanted to be back on the pitch to put things right as quickly as possible following their defeat on Saturday.

Two sloppy goals, either side of a missed David Cross penalty, saw the Beechwood Park side’s winning run come to an end against Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale.

Before that, Sauchie had won five games in a row in all competitions and Hewitt insisted he was determined to get back to winning ways.

He told Advertiser Sport: “Everything that we have done lately, we didn’t do on Saturday.

“We’ve been solid at the back and scored plenty of goals recently, so I think it was just a bad day at the office.

“Training’s been good, everything has been good, it’s just a wee blip and hopefully we will get back to winning ways on Saturday.

“It’s time to dust ourselves down and get back to winning ways and I wish there was a game tomorrow.”

Sauchie’s lacklustre performance came out of the blue for the the side who had scored in every single game they had played so far this season.

And Hewitt admitted the side just weren’t at the races.

He added: “It wasn’t due to a lack of desire or anything and we can’t wait to put things right.

“The way we play, the other team did that to us.

“They pressed us high up the park and didn’t allow us to create the kind of chances we normally do.

“On our day, we should be beating them. You want to win all your home games and I think we have been good lately at home.

“There was a good crowd and it was disappointing to let them down.

“But, I think to be honest, we could still be playing now and not score.”
