Caretaker manager Jamie McCunnie speaks of his disappointment and frustration losing 3-0 at Dundonald Bluebell on Saturday in the Super League. Read below what he had to say…

“Saturday’s game was very frustrating and probably the poorest performance since I’ve been in charge of team matters at the club. I think we had two shots on target in the whole 90mins of the game which is nowhere near good enough considering the players we have in the team and squad.

We were down to the very bare bones as we had some players missing yesterday be it injured or holiday commitments but that’s no excuse and full credit must go to Dundonald who were by far the better team on the day. I went with young John Sinclair in the goal as he played well last week in our win over Jeanfield Swifts. We also brought in former player Ross McCord as a trialist to help us out.

The squad of players we have are capable of a much better performance than they showed and we will be looking for a much-improved performance next week in the East of Scotland Cup match against local East Craigie at Whitton Park. They were thumped 7-2 by Blairgowrie so their gaffer Craig Brown will be looking for a reaction come Saturday too so a hard game is in store.

Hopefully, a couple of our injuries will heal up, and players returning from holiday will boost our numbers wise this week coming, we’ll just need to see how things go…”

Broughty Athletic take a break from Super League football next Saturday when they welcome local side East Craigie to Whitton Park in the first round of the East of Scotland Cup. Should the game end in a draw after 90mins then a penalty shootout will determine who goes into the hat for the second round draw…
