Shotts captain Paul Finnigan admits he is going through the toughest spell of his Shotts career but believes the squad has what it takes to climb off the foot of the Super Premier League table.
The Scottish Junior Cup champions were promoted last year to the top flight but lost 4-2 at Rob Roy on Saturday and have now failed to win any of their opening six games.
“It is tough when you are not getting results,” Finnigan said. “It becomes a bit of a monkey on your back and players start to wonder when we are going to get the first win instead of relaxing and playing the game.
“In the three years I have been at Shotts, we have never gone six league games without a win. I can count on one hand the amount of times we have been beaten back-to-back.
“That is a standard as a player you take great pride in. It is the toughest spell I have certainly had at Shotts and, under the management of Tony (McInally) and Stewart (Ralston), who I have played under for five or six years at different clubs.
“We just need to dig deep and stick together and it will come good.”
