STUART McINNES has backed Fraser Duncan to turn Sauchie's fortunes around as he celebrated his own side's triumph over Syngenta.

The Wee Sauchie boss believes the Wee County legend, who returned to the club earlier this month following Martin Mooney's departure, is the man to guide the team off the foot of the Premier Division.

McInnes' Reds beat Allan Walker's side at Beechwood on Saturday to make it three wins from four and he hopes it won't be long until both Sauchie teams are back to winning ways.

"I know Fraser personally and we are quite similar in the way we think," McInnes told Advertiser Sport. "We see guys for what they do bring rather than what they don't bring.

"He gets the best out of players so, hopefully, we can get the two teams winning together.

"He's a good lad and has been managing a lot longer than a lot of others in the game. He knows what he needs to do and knows he needs to get rid of a few players."

McInnes' side bounced back from their defeat to Stoneyburn to romp to a 3-0 win over the Grangemouth outfit.

Peter Maxwell opened the scoring with an early striker before Bryden Nolan gave the Wee Reds a 2-0 lead at the break.

Syngenta improved after half-time without ever truly threatening and Brian McAdam rounded off the scoring to lift the Wee Sauchie to sixth in the table.

It was a day of delight for McInnes and he was keen to highlight the impact of local youngsters McAdam and Josh Blyth, who have both hit top form in recent weeks.

He said: "We knew it was going to be harder than the last game when we drew 1-1 because of the changes they have made in the background.

"So, I went with three strikers to try and pin them higher up the park and it worked. We should have won by more but if you had offered me 3-0 before kick-off I would have taken it.

"We played really well and in the first couple of minutes they couldn't cope with us.

"In the last few weeks, Bryan has been terrific and the good thing is that he is a local boy.

"Bryan and Josh Blyth have been excellent recently and I want people to know that when they are picking up the paper.

"The main thing right now is that the players are enjoying things right now and that comes with winning."
