Beith boss Bryan Young lamented over his side’s poor finishing as they lost 1-0 to Bo’ness United at the weekend.

Devon Jacobs scored the only goal of the game in the first half at Bellsdale to dump the Mighty out of the South Challenge Cup.

Speaking to the Herald, Young said: “In the first half, we were not winning second balls and there was no workrate or desire.

"In the second half, I felt as if we came out on the front foot and were probably much the better side.

“We had two or three clear cut chances and one absolute peach of an opportunity that was missed at the end.

“It was the last kick of the ball and we put it over the bar.

“But that is what happens if you don’t take your chances then you are out of the cup unfortunately.”

The Cabes get a quick chance of redemption tonight when they return to league duty against Benburb.

Young says he is expecting a reaction from his players at New Tinto Park as he aims for a climb up the Premier Division table.

He said: “Without a doubt we need a reaction and we need to get as far up this league as possible.

“We have got a real opportunity with some teams around us dropping points.

“The top three are really kicking on and showing their dominance but everyone else has shown a real inconsistency throughout the year.

“So, this is an opportunity for us with a few games in hand.”
