The was no dream start for new Duns manager Carl Hudson as Duns narrowly lost to Burntisland on Saturday.

After a dour start the game burst into life with both sides creating chances. Firstly Duns keeper Scott Lumsden did well to deny Doig whose header was sneaking inside the post then a last ditch tackle denied Garry Waddell getting his shot in.

Lumsden then pulled off a tremendous save a minute before the interval when Doig was clean through.

The second half saw a lot more goalmouth action and Lowe was not too far away after latching on to a Sartarello knock down. Daniel Pattenden then just failed to make good connection with a ball across the face of the Shipyard goal.

The home side took the lead with a superb strike from Pete Bell but just seven minutes Duns drew level when a free-kick was headed out of the Shipyard box and Mark Weatherburn showed fantastic technique to volley home from 22 yards.

Within a minute Weatherburn almost put Duns ahead but his left foot shot smashed back of the post.

The Shipyard scored what proved to be the winner when Lumsden saved well from Doig but but the ball dropped to Craig McKay and he rammed it home from close range. Steven Burns should have done better with a close range header in added time when he looked certain to score but he headed over the bar.
