Duns went down to a 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Burntisland on Saturday.

And coming as it did just a week after their away win over Stirling University, manager carl Hudson said it highlighted their lack of consistency throughout the season.

“In that respect I was disappointed with the result and the performance,” he said, “because it was very lacklustre.”

Duns travelled with a weakened squad - they didn’t even have a goalkeeper, and central defender Gavin renton had to take over between the posts.

He didn’t have a lot to do throughout the 90 minutes, making one good save, but the key fact was that he had to pick the ball out of the net twice.

Burntisland were rarely seen as an attacking force. They only had one shot at goal in the first half, which they scored from, whilst at the other end Stevuie Shennan was unlucky to see an effort come back off the inside of a post.

It was a similar story in the second half. The away side only created two chances and scored from one of them, ten minutes from the end, to put the game out of Duns’ reach.

“This was a definite ‘bottom of the table’ clash,” said Hudson, “but unfortunatelty we weren’t at our best.

“We have three games left, but it looks like we might very well finish bottom of the league and that would be a first for me. It means I wouldn’t have achieved what I set out to achieve when I first took over.”

Duns: Renton, Wedderburn, McHoul, Finnie, Ainslie, Stewart, Walker, McGregor, Lee, Shennan, Robinson.
