Unfortunate yesterday that a depleted Saints took on a spirited Bonnyton side really keen to christen their new pitch with a win. Uncharacteristically showing their opponents too much respect, a makeshift Saints midfield a wee bit out of sorts and shape gave away the flanks too easily and set the defence up for a busy afternoon against a good, young, well drilled fast attack. But for some first rate defending, quick thinking and timely cover, 4 would have been more. Indeed reports to the detriment and demise of the Saints rearguard are greatly exaggerated with the back line seen to be full of heart, trust and energy, keen to turn defence into attack. On the flip side Saints again could have been at least 3 up themselves at half time, just like last week, if the early pressure and chances had gone their way, adding to a slick penalty from Dolly and an absolutely cracking strike from Blair. Signs are good that this new Saints team, managers and players, are not far away from clicking.
