Binos boss Dave Mackay admits there were no positives as we slumped to a 3-0 defeat to bottom club Cowdenbeath at Forthbank on Saturday.
On-loan Livingston striker Dale Carrick scored twice and Kris Renton was also on target as the Blue Brazil beat us here for the second time this season.
Mackay said: “The only positive was the final whistle. It was woeful from the first minute – it was very similar to the Forfar game and if we had lost them both 7-0 we couldn’t really have argued!
“We hardly had a shot on goal and we were weak as a team defensively. I know we are still only four points off the play-offs but Montrose are also above us now and if we play like that we have no chance.
“I felt sorry for Ross Kavanagh and Callumn Morrison being taken off so early but I had to do something to try and change it – every player was a mile off it.
“In my eyes Cowdenbeath are not the worst team in the league and even if they finish bottom I’m sure they will stay up – their front two are a real handful.”
Cowdenbeath manager Gary Locke said: “That’s the best we have played since I became the manager and the only negative is that we should probably have scored more goals. We played some great stuff and the way we started the game set the tone.
“Clyde and Edinburgh City also won but if we play like that in our last three games we will give ourselves a chance. The boys have never let their heads go down, which is a credit to them.”
