The Gowfers may have painted themselves into a corner, but it’s one the gaffer is confident of getting out of cleanly.
Panmure boss Alan McSkimming was understandably unhappy with the 4-0 loss to Armadale at the weekend. He said: “Saturday was a particularly low point for us. We didn’t play anywhere near the standard we set ourselves.
“It was really disappointing. It was such a big game for us and unfortunately we didn’t show up and compete the way Armadale did and we got what we deserved, which was nothing.
“It was a real opportunity to get back on track but we didn’t take it and now we’ve got ourselves into a bit of a tricky situation going into the last six or seven games of the season.”
Carnoustie have a tough task ahead next week as they face Camelon, St Andrews and Musselburgh over the course of seven days.
There is still plenty to play for as the boss explained: “We’re really confident as a squad that we can get ourselves out of this as it’s in our own hands.
“We can still finish in a really good position and that’s the aim.”
