Fan blog: Air­drieo­ni­ans In the lead but doomed to con­cede

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Reader Travel -

Air­drie re­main un­der se­vere pres­sure fol­low­ing this loss.

Three con­sec­u­tive de­feats, de­spite scor­ing first, saw Air­drie fall to just two points above the bot­tom team.

Be­gin­ning with the same team as last week, the scram­ble to clear in an un­changed de­fence in the open­ing minute was a har­bin­ger of what was to come later.

A promis­ing start ended with Vic­to­ria scor­ing after 15 min­utes.

The re­cent fail­ings quickly re­sumed three min­utes later as a rapid un­chal­lenged move gave Jack­son time to shoot home.

It got no bet­ter in the scond half as, de­spite some changes, care­less de­fend­ing al­lowed Brechin to take the lead.

We are sup­posed to“en­joy the game”as Stephen Find­lay promised in the match­day pro­gramme, but these dire per­for­mances, week after week, are a frus­tra­tion to many.

We’re told ev­ery team can beat any other team in this league.

Un­for­tu­nately, that has been us re­cently.

Our next three games are against sides be­low us in the league, but if this slide con­tin­ues, we’ll soon be look­ing up at all of them.

Leaky Air­drie can’t hold a lead
