Depleted Saints battle to stay in Scottish Cup tie

Greenock HSFP 2

Oban Saints 2

Scottish Cup - 4th Round

A DEPLETED Oban Saints, with two 17-year-olds and a considerably older member of the coaching staff on the subs bench, forced a highly creditable Scottish Amateur Cup fourth round draw at Battery Park, Greenock, last Saturday. The well below full strength Saints side twice battled back from a goal behind against Central Scottish Amateur Football League Premier Division Greenock High School Former Pupils to force a replay at Glencruitten this Saturday.

A crippling combination of injuries, work and family commitments forced Saints manager Alex Craik to keep up his unwanted record of naming a different starting 11 for every match so far this season.

Saints got proceedings underway at a dry but overcast Battery Park, Greenock, playing into the cold wind blowing in off the Firth of Clyde. The makeshift Saints, trialling a new 3-4-2-1 formation, made a solid start against opponents Greenock who were also missing a few regulars.
