DEREK McCULLOCH shrugged off Beith's OVD Scottish Cup exit - and insisted his side must channel everything into climbing the Super League First Division table.

The Bellsdale Park outfit went out of the cup to last season's beaten finalists Tayport last Saturday. In the league they had been tipped to be challenging for promotion but lie third bottom.

Tough-tackling captain McCulloch said: 'Now the Scottish is out of the way we must concentrate on pushing up the table.

'For whatever reason, things have gone flat in the league.

'We have three games in hand over most of the sides in the division and if we were to win them it would put us back in the picture.

'However, we have a fair bit of ground to make up on the sides near the top so we cannot afford many slip-ups.

'Saturday's performance showed what we can do. There's no disgrace in going down to a side like Tayport and we managed to keep them at bay for almost two thirds of the game.'
