Mario Balotelli finding the net was the only glimmer of hope in another sorry week for crisis-club Polonia Forsyth.
Despite the manager’s startling battle cry a few weeks ago, the club have occupied last place since January.
“I’m fair plucked from telling the lads to ‘keep the heid or I’ll gie ye a skelpit lug’, but they nae respond,” said the Polonia Forsyth boss.
The side also failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the Cannestan Combi Cup which gets underway today.
The Bala Rinas manager, who also didn’t qualify, will be particularly happy he’s no longer staking his season on cup success. Laurent Koscielny has just scored an own goal.
