SAUCHIE recorded a confident win over league strugglers Hill of Beath over the weekend, beating the visitors 4-2.

Four different goal scorers got on the scoresheet over the weekend, with goals from Kieran Anderson, Sam Davidson, Danny Smith and Sam Collumbine securing three points for the Reds.

Sauchie gaffer Fraser Duncan said it was important for his side to set up correctly, with Hill of Beath fighting to stay out of the relegation zone.

He said: “They’re fighting for their lives and they’ve got a lot to play for. It was important for us to set up correctly in response.

“The guys have been superb over the past few weeks and we were continuing to get better. The game was a funny one, I think if Hill of Beath had taken the lead early, it would’ve been tough for us to get back into it.

“We went out in ascendancy and stayed composed and got a goal in from Kieran Anderson. Hill of Beath gave us a few scares at points but we looked in control of the game for the most part.

“Going into the second half sitting at 3-2 was a bit of a worry at the time, but Sam Collumbine pulled a rocket out and sealed the points for us.”

Sauchie currently sit at second in the League, eight points behind Linlithgow Rose with just a few games to go.

Duncan said he wanted his side to enjoy the rest of the season and enjoy their football, something he said he saw on display on Saturday.

“I said to the lads: ‘let’s just go and enjoy the rest of the season’”, Duncan added. “We wanted to try and put as many points on the board in the time we had left.

“We’re still in two cups so we’ve got two great chances to go and get something from this season.

“We had many great individual performances on Saturday. I don’t usually give out individual praise but Jack Docherty was outstanding and has been the past few weeks. Darren Carroll as well has been amazing.”

Sauchie step away from league action this weekend as they travel to Bo’ness Athletic in the League Cup.
