BUCKIE Thistle defender Iain Macrae admits they really let themselves down against Annan Athletic.
And Macrae insisted the 4-0 replay defeat at Galabank on Saturday was a missed opportunity.
"Their wide players are good and their strikers are good but they are not the best team we have played this season. If you put them in the Highland League I don’t think they would be among the top teams.
"Maybe we came here and gave them too much respect.
"We are really disappointed because we let ourselves down big time."
Despite the defeat, Macrae is excited at the prospects for the remainder of the season.
"We have a great group of players here. This current group, I believe, will finish very high up the leage."
