SAUCHIE continued their good form with an “outstanding” win against Haddington Athletic on Saturday.

A brace from Danny Smith and a goal from Scott Davidson saw the Reds perform a second half comeback to trump Haddington 3-2.

Manager Fraser Duncan was delighted with their performance, particularly in the second half when Haddington barely had a sniff of the ball.

“The first half we were the better side”, he told Advertiser Sport. “We went one down against the run of play but we pushed and got ourselves back in the game.

“They had a five or 10 minute spell where they’ve done well and scored their second. The conditions were quite rough and the goalkeeper made a mistake but these things happen.

“We told them that they had 45 minutes to go and fix this and show people exactly how we can play, to go and up the intensity and threaten their goal.

“In the second half, we were absolutely outstanding. The intensity from our boys, how we were on the ball, it was outstanding from our boys.

“We’ve had to wait for our goal but Sam Davidson and Scott Davidson has finished it off, our captain leading by example.

“This gets us back in the game then Ross Hutchison and wins the second penalty of the day which Danny Smith converts.”

Duncan hailed Sauchie for responding to the pressure placed on them, particularly when they went a goal down at the break.

The Reds have now faced some of the League’s toughest opponents all away from home, which Duncan pinpointed as a sign the team was back to their full strength.

He added: “We wanted to keep the momentum going and, to be honest, the boys have been outstanding the last couple weeks.

“The last game against Dundonald we played some outstanding football and it was the same against Haddington on Saturday.

“I would say there are four very difficult places to go in the league – Dundonald and Haddington definitely, and I’d say Musselburgh and Hill of Beath are the other two.

“We’ve gone away to three of them and picked up maximum points and I’m thoroughly pleased with that.

“We knew that we had to go get three points and they knew that there was a lot of pressure on them and they had to play with that pressure.

“We didn’t start the season very well so we’ve got that pressure on us now to win every game.”
