McDermont foaming at the mouth.

Gav Greener takes the brunt of it again.

Another disappointing game topped off with McDermont foaming at the mouth, requesting to be subbed, then fannying around in the box to concede the fourth goal.

The side was a bit all over the place. We had around five new players in Nelly Richardson, Gavin Brannen, Dale Storey, Jason Stuart and goalkeeper Mark Turnbull. However, conceding a goal in the first few minutes didn't help and we held it at 1-0 until the half ended. We had chances (or potential chances) at the other end, but like the last few weeks, we weren't clinical enough.

Second half saw another goal conceded and more chances squandered, while defensively we were dithering. The 4-0 result wasn't ideally a reflection on the chances, but 4-0 is 4-0.
