A frustrated co-boss Kenny Coull said after the match: “I thought we played very well. I was very happy with the way the team played in the second half.
“But I felt it was down to defensive errors again, the long ball for the first goal and we’re caught out. For the second goal, the guy has run from nearly his own half. We have to start learning and learn quick.
“Kieran Adams did very well (looking after Cammy Keith) but on that occasion (the first goal) he let Cammy slip off his shoulder a bit, you cannot do that with Cammy Keith, that’s why they (he and Jamie Lennox) are top Highland League players
“Today was tough. We knew we were tight on numbers because we count Scott Buchan and myself. We need a couple more players. Some of the young guys came in, got their chance, some of them took it
“Missing players like Craig Ross and Neil Gauld, you cannot have to expect to always rely on these players. We have a squad for a reason, we need other options, to take it on and change a game. We need to get our boys just enjoying things again, it’s difficult to get the boys lifted again, we want it to be a happy place”
