MANAGER Steve Young was left fuming after being let down by three players on the morning of the game, meaning the manager was pressed into emergency service.

Despite having only 11 players available, Saints took the lead on 17 minutes through Wes Byrne after Young had seen his shot blocked by the home goalkeeper.

Young, a goalkeeper by trade, had earlier hit the crossbar with a 25-yard piledriver from his unfamiliar forward position but it was not to be for Saints.
