A SHOCK defeat has prompted Elgin City’s boss to demand that his team delivers at least seven points from their next three outings.

Ross Jack branded City’s display in Saturday’s 3-0 loss at Montrose “hopeless”, and is urging the players to make amends by winning maximum points from their next two home games against Queen’s Park and East Stirling.

The manager is hoping last week’s surprising Links Park slump will act as the wake-up call to make his men realise that they need to strive for consistency if they are to make a stronger promotion challenge this season.

“Our performance simply wasn’t acceptable,” Jack said. “As good as we were against Berwick, we were as bad this week. We were hopeless.

“Now I will make sure we get back to doing the things that we are good at, and that have got us success. That’s playing together as a team, working hard for the team, being difficult to beat and taking our chances.

“During the first half on Saturday we didn’t do any of these things and let ourselves down extremely badly.”

The Borough Briggs boss admitted he was counting on a victory at Montrose, and won’t accept anything less than two wins out of two to finish the month.

Then looking ahead to September, Jack is aiming to take something from the derby visit to Peterhead.
