ANT MCTAGGART believes two huge results for Sauchie in the last week can kick-start their stuttering season.

After a poor start to the league, Sauchie finally got a win on Saturday, beating the undefeated Lothian Thistle HV away from home and claiming a major scalp.

That result followed a strong cup performance last Wednesday, beating Kilwinning Rangers 2-1 and McTaggart thinks it should be a platform to build from.

McTaggart told Advertiser Sport: "The next two games are at home against Inverkeithing on Wednesday and then Camelon on Saturday and they're two games we should be looking to win.

"It'll be hard, there's no easy games but if we play the way we did on Saturday and last Wednesday there's no reason why we can't get six points. Hopefully we can kick on from here.

"It was a hard game [against Lothian Thistle]. Obviously, going into it they were unbeaten.

"After dominating the Blackburn game for 85 minutes, the last five minutes was an absolute disaster. But then we got the win against Kilwinning during the week and that gave us a good lift going into Saturday and we were right at it from the word go.

"We deserved it, it should have been more because we had loads of chances to kill the game off at 2-1.

"A lot of our chances we should have been scoring but Craig Donaldson came on and got a good finish at the end so it was a good day's work."

With a slow start to the season, now is as good a time as any to start getting some wins and McTaggart is optimistic.

"Anybody can get anybody," he said. "There's a lot of new boys and we've not really had time to bond with one another because of the restrictions but we're starting to build a bit of momentum.

"We have got a good team, we've got right good players but we've got a lot of injuries too. Hopefully we can kick on."

After a spell out of the team, McTaggart is back in the starting 11 and hopes he can cement a place in the team.

He said: "I'm loving it. The last [few] months obviously with lockdown and before lockdown I wasn't really playing because the team were winning.

"I feel like I'm playing good and I'm loving being back involved so long may it continue."
