A SECOND half comeback saw Tynecastle put two past Sauchie as they battled the weather conditions in the capital.

The Reds headed to Edinburgh for their penultimate away game of the season, looking to see the season out on a strong footing.

Sauchie got off to a bright start, with Ross Kavanagh burying his shot away after the Tynecastle keeper palmed the initial chance from Mikey Cunningham to the feet of the No.9.

Heading into the break, the Reds were holding onto their one goal lead, but the hosts came out the traps in the second half.

Tynecastle grabbed two quick goals and put themselves in the front, with Sauchie unable to find their equaliser.

Speaking to the Advertiser afterwards, manager Fraser Duncan said: “First and foremost, I'm really disappointed to come away with nothing from the game.

“I just felt with the conditions, with the wind howling and the rain coming down, it meant the pitch was really slippy and the boys were struggling to keep their footing, but like we said at half time, it’s the same for both teams.

“I felt in the first half, we deserved the lead with the chances that we created. Second half, I know we’ve created four or five chances, but I just think that Tynecastle adapted to the conditions better, they just looked a bit slicker going forward.

“They managed to move the ball quicker and I’d say were more direct, our guys were over-playing it at times, trying too many short passes with nothing getting in behind and testing them.

“Tynecastle got the joy and got up the park really well, which caused us problems and caused us to concede goals.”
