Red Star exit cup af­ter dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance

Argyllshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Red Star crashed out of the Scot­tish Cup on Satur­day af­ter an er­ror-strewn re­play per­for­mance was pun­ished by a clin­i­cal South­side team.

As in the orig­i­nal tie, Red Star got off to a ter­ri­ble start, find­ing them­selves two goals down in­side 20 min­utes af­ter sloppy er­rors. To make things worse, de­fender Luke Naisby was forced off with a ham­string in­jury.

Star tried to play their way into the game but their pass­ing was rushed and it was South­side who added to their tally be­fore the break af­ter a long ball over the top re­sulted in a break­down of com­mu­ni­ca­tion at the back and the striker had the sim­ple task of round­ing Kalache and plac­ing the ball into the net.

Star pulled a goal back in the sec­ond half thanks to an ex­cel­lent in­di­vid­ual ef­fort from Cammy Mac­Don­ald. Chances fol­lowed for Star, but Aaron Moore’s shot was blocked by the South­side keeper and Gre­gor Pea­cock shot just wide of the far post.

The scor­ing was com­pleted by the vis­i­tors in the 85th minute when Star failed to clear a cor­ner and the striker shot past Kalache from close range to seal a 1-4 vic­tory.

Star will look to bounce back in an­other tough tie on Satur­day Septem­ber 15 when they take on Ud­dingston at home in the first round of the West of Scot­land Cup. The match will take place at the Rope­work or Joint Cam­pus with a 2pm kick-off.
