Welsh Woe

 

A visit to Balmoral Stadium to face Cove Rangers on Tuesday night brings fresh urgency after a lacklustre draw against Stirling Albion ended with the Bino's taking the bonus point after a penalty shoot-out. We will have to do it without the injured Sean Welsh. The Cove game kicks-off at 19:45 with live streaming available from Cove Rangers TV for a tenner.

Both sides had the wind taken out of their sails at the weekend with Stirling Albion causing an upset at the Caledonian Stadium after winning the bonus point in a penalty shoot out following a 2-2 draw after ninety minutes. Mackin and Moore had given the visitors an early lead before Roddy MacGregor pulled one back before the break. Shane Sutherland quickly restored parity after the break but no further scoring saw the tie being decided on penalties where the Bino's took the bonus point.

Cove surprisingly went down to a rejuvenated Peterhead by 3-1. Brown put Peterhead in front after only three minutes before Megginson levelled ten minutes later. However Cameron and McLean scored either side of the break to give Peterhead their first win of the competition. Surprise surprise; Vigurs and Draper both booked.

Cove starting XI v Peterhead:

McKenzie; Ross, Neill, Higgins, Yule, Vigurs:yellowcard:, Draper:yellowcard:, Scully, Megginson:yellowcard:, McAllister, Leitch

Latest team news

Captain Sean Welsh looks likely to be out for at least a month. The often injured midfielder turned his ankle at the weekend and will miss the next few weeks. Leaves the door open for another midfielder to stake a claim for a start, or push David Carson forward and see if Wallace Duffy is ready to fill the right back slot. Still waiting for Billy Mckay and Anthony McDonald to surface, although Mckay could be ready sooner rather than later.

Can’t believe we have wasted part of our budget on Broadfoot and Gardyne. Both hopeless. Would have preferred to give our kids a game, couldn’t be any worse. Drapes played centre half for Cove and pro

A must win game Sunday 😂😂

For the second game in succession, we find ourselves two goals down to a part time team from a lower division.

I was prepared to look on the Stirling game as an aberration. Unless we turn it round in the second half, it is beginning to look far more serious and concerning than that.

Ouch, pretty painful watch.  I hope Broadfoot is just short of fitness because if not his signing is a colossal waste of time. We'd be far better off signing players on other positions and just developing Fyffe.

It’s not just 2 goals, all the other stats favour Cove too eg 61% possession in first half. Rather worrying.

If we see ourselves as promotion contenders this is laughable. 

Pathetic.

Dodds out. Clueless and toothless. I thought we were getting a strong new manager but without McCann we are looking like a side fighting for relegation in the new season. No heart, no fire, no idea!

Shocking and an embarrassment. Outplayed and outcontested in every department.

Our League Cup campaign is over for yet another season before it has properly began.

That is immensely disappointing and hugely worrying but not a disaster.

What would be a disaster would be to take anything like this form and this attitude into the league season

The Championship is going to be highly competitive this season and this form, or anything like it is relegation form and not the form of a side competing at the right end of the league table.

We can't afford a slow start to the league season.

Billy Dodds, the board and the majority of fans put their faith in you only a matter of weeks ago. Get it sorted and get it sorted without delay.

Both full backs getting very little in the way of protection. We are completely exposed in the wider areas of midfield. We look like we’re playing 4-2-4 and not very well. We need some solidity against hearts or it’ll be embarrassing

Nice to get the bad days in the office out of the way before the serious stuff starts! That's about the only silver lining I can find from the last two results...

Not great to say the least.  More worrying than previous years too as we were taking it seriously this year rather than using it as pre season. Just doesn't look like a plan and system is coming together yet at all.

That was a waste of £10 for the streaming.    Boring commentators but enjoyed stadium announcer making a mess of his own players names - sub with Mac replacing another Mac and he got them muddled.   At least we know Manny can score pens.

It is commonly known as sarcasm. As Yazoo once said to me after getting beaten by Wick Academy - "The only way is up baby".
