SALTCOATS Victoria have their sights set on higher things after picking up their second win of the season.

Boss Bryan Slavin spoke of his delight at picking up more points this weekend, after the Campbell Park side fired four past Easterhouse in a resounding 4-0 win.

The result puts the two sides level on points at the foot of the West of Scotland Football League (WoSFL) Fourth Division table - though Slavin doesn't plan on remaining their much longer.

He said: "The aims are the same as last time we spoke. Overhaul the team above us, which is Easterhouse, and then the team above that and so on.

"It's important that we don't get ahead of ourselves too quickly."

While the result may have come as a surprise to many, after Saltcoats succumbed to a 10-1 defeat only last week - though manager Slavin said his players were well prepared to bounce back.

He continued: "They bounced back tremendously well from last week and again all the credit goes to the players for that.

"The reality of the result last week was that it was a bit of freak in the end, as the players just completely lost their way towards the end.

"I wasn't hard on them afterwards as I could see it for what it was, but I knew it would be a huge test for them today and they passed with flying colours."

The manner of the victory was one that also had the Saltcoats boss grinning ear to ear - though he was far more focussed on the lack of goals conceded, rather than the four scored.

Slavin added: "The clean sheet is everything. It's utterly crucial that we are strong at the back in order to give the midfield and attackers a chance to go and get something we were very solid all throughout the game.

"Our new goalie, Cammy Taylor, was absolutely first class and the back four never put a foot wrong all day. That gives every other part of the pitch great confidence to go and be positive."

Slavin compared himself to the Grinch, as he said he wasn't exactly impressed by the win as a whole.

He explained: "Without trying to sound like the Grinch, I wasn't impressed as such, because I knew that we were capable of it.

"It was just a matter of things clicking in the right areas. We probably still lack the confidence to do it against teams further up the league, however the players know they, at the very least, are a match for those teams around us."

Now, the Saltcoats boss is eyeing more of the same, and picking up more 'surprise' wins to climb the league.

Slavin added: "Getting the points on the board was just a good morale boost for the players I think, given all the effort they've put in.

"I'm not paying too much heed to it as my focus is on performances and development this early but it is still nice to see us starting to catch our opponents above us.

"There's no doubt that there will be the odd raised eyebrow after the manner of our victory but hopefully not enough interest that people start to take us serious just yet. I'd like to rely on the element of surprise for a few games yet."
