Yogi is a bear with sore head

Lennox Herald - - READER TRAVEL -

John Hughes ad­mit­ted he was strug­gling to find an ex­pla­na­tion for Raith Rovers’ shock­ing show­ing against Sons.

The Fifers were thrashed 4-0 atThe Rock to leave them in the eye of a Cham­pi­onship rel­e­ga­tion storm.

Raith won their first league game since Oc­to­ber lastWed­nes­day night – a 2-0 tri­umph at home to St Mir­ren.

But Rovers re­verted to type and now face an anx­ious end to the cam­paign.

Yogi – who re­placed the sacked Gary Locke as Raith man­ager – said:“We were well beaten.

“Dum­bar­ton did to us what we did to St Mir­ren onWed­nes­day.

“It was a real test of our char­ac­ter but we’ve come un­stuck and not come up with the goods. “It’s very dis­ap­point­ing. “Con­sis­tently we can’t per­form which is a sad thing to say but that is it in a nut­shell. You can’t just turn it on and off like a tap.

“We’re just ask­ing them to do the fun­da­men­tals and bat­tle away but we weren’t at the races. It was miles away from the other night.”

Hughes in­sisted:“I can’t put my fin­ger on it. We’re so in­con­sis­tent that it is un­be­liev­able.

“We are where we are. It’s one step for­ward, two steps back.We need to rec­tify things as quickly as we can.”
