In it to­gether – boss

West Lothian Courier - - Memory Lane - Fauld­house Utd ...... 0 Thorn­ton Hibs ........ 4

Fauld­house boss Jon Con­nolly says the club will re­group and bounce back stronger af­ter their dis­ap­point­ing start to the sea­son con­tin­ued.

De­spite hav­ing the bet­ter of the play in the first half, the Hoose went into the break two goals down thanks to Garry Thom­son and Chris Ire­land.

The hosts again en­joyed plenty of the play in the se­cond half be­fore Thom­son net­ted his se­cond with a smart strike on 63 min­utes – be­fore com­plet­ing his tre­ble with a stun­ning free-kick to round off the scor­ing.

Af­ter­wards, Con­nolly took United’s Face­book page to re­lease a state­ment that said:“I first and fore­most I take full re­spon­si­bil­ity for dis­plays by the as­sured my­self and coach­ing staff will be work­ing hard to fix it and turn things around.

“The play­ers are fully aware that I will not tol­er­ate that per­for­mance and more so the at­ti­tude and lack of fight. We will re­group this week.

“I’ll be assess­ing the play­ers’ re­ac­tions to Satur­day this week and if I don’t feel they are up for the fight, they won’t play, sim­ple as that. We all stick to­gether and be­come stronger.”
