FRASER DUNCAN is on the verge of bolstering his Sauchie squad in their fight for Premier Division survival.

The Reds boss could be set to bring in as many as three new players to the Wee County outfit ahead of crucial run of games over the Christmas period.

Duncan has made no secret his desire to add more firepower but he had been forced to move on bodies before club supremo Noel Dalli opened the cheque book.

Josh Munro and Lewis Small have both departed the club by mutual consent in recent weeks and Advertiser Sport understands another of former manager Martin Mooney's summer signings will move on this week.

Former Falkirk youngster Conor Langton, who was one of Sauchie's star performers last season, had been placed on the transfer list, but Advertiser Sport can reveal Duncan and assistant Davie Beaton have now agreed to let him stay and fight for his place.

Meanwhile, Sauchie's survival hopes were given a major boost on Saturday as they brushed aside Blackburn United at Beechwood Park.

The Reds bounced back from their Camelon disappointment as goals from Stevie Dolan, the returning Kyle Turnbull, and David McCaughie secured all three points.

Duncan told Advertiser Sport: "After the disappointment of the Camelon game, I said to the boys they really need to pick themselves up for the big games coming up and get maximum points.

"We need to concentrate on our home games and pick up the points at Beechwood and we did exactly that on Saturday.

"It was one of those games where it was never really in any doubt and we went out and did things the right way.

"We defended really well and played some great stuff and it could have been more than 3-0 if we had been that wee bit more clinical in front of goal.

"We are still searching for that little bit up front, but it was good to get three points and that's the most important thing at this point."

The goals for Stevie Dolan and McCaughie will be a huge boost to the makeshift frontmen who both missed a number of key chances in the defeat to Camelon.

The search for another striker goes on, but Duncan hopes the duo will push on after finding the back of the net against their fellow strugglers.

"It is good to see and I have said to Stevie that is something he has to add to his game," Duncan said.

"To get the goals, he's got to start having more shots and he did that. We've been encouraging him and asking him to have three attempts on goal in a half.

"Kyle Turnbull stepped up to take the free kick and I asked him to shoot and it came off the surface and the goalie hasn't been able to save it.

"Dave McCaughie is the same and he's got to take ownership when he gets in front of goal.

"You never have to tell strikers to shoot normally but they did that on Saturday and I am delighted for them.

"Hopefully they can now kick on."
