Nemanja Jankovic looks on as his shot finds its way into the net to equalise.

Brook Street handed debuts for new signings Leandro Di Gaudio and Eyüphan Toga for today’s trip to Kessler’s Eleven, but they must wonder what they’ve let themselves in for after their new side contrived to throw away three points after Jake MacConnechy was red carded for an off the ball incident.

At that point, Brook Street were 2-1 up and looking impressive having fought back from losing a goal in the first quarter of an hour; two goals in the space of a minute from Nemanja Jankovic and Jake MacConnechy had turned the game around just after the half hour mark.

However, just two minutes after taking the lead a moment of madness from Jake MacConnechy proved to be pivotal, and four unanswered goals for Kessler’s in the second half consigned Brook Street to their second successive defeat.

“Yet again our indiscipline has let us down”, admitted a clearly exasperated Marcus Lövman at the post-match press conference. “From being in control of the game and looking to close it off, we shot ourselves in the foot”.

When asked what had changed to make Brook Street’s disciplinary record go from average to the worst in the league, the coach shrugged and said, “I honestly haven’t a clue. What’s clear though is that it can’t continue. We got away with going down to ten men against Airth Castle, but we paid a huge price today”.

With confidence perhaps wavering, the double-header against Edinburgh-KSZO can’t come quick enough for the coach… and the fans.

Elsewhere, there were victories for Airth Castle, Carbrain FC and Vines Cross.
