Contribute to support quality local journalism
KEITH were thrashed 8-2 at home to Buckie Thistle, prompting manager Dean Donaldson to warn that heads will roll.
The Maroons capitulated after losing two quick goals before half time to trail 3-1, with Jags running riot in the second half.
"The chaacter in the team was shown right through," blasted Keith boss Donaldson. "There were so many boys who just gave up.
"So many of them boys won't be here for long because it's either me or them. I'm not going to accept that."
Scott Adams' fourth of the season put Buckie ahead before a cracking finish levelled for Keith.
Just when it looked like finishing all square after 45 minutes, Scott Robertson and Craig Cowie netted in the dying moments to edge the visitors in front.
From there it was one-sided with Keiran Adams, Sam Urquhart (2) and subs Callum Murray and Scott Graham surging Jags into an 8-1 lead before Cammy Keith got a crumb of consolation near the end.
Yet even with such an emphatic first half show, Buckie manager Graeme Stewart was critical of his team's first half display.
"I thought we were poor in the first half and very lucky to go in 3-1 up," he said. "They must have listened to what we said at half time because they knew they needed to up their game and they definitely did that."
