First team coach Stephen Findlay has called for the fans to back his Airdrie flops after another humiliating day in Methil.
The Diamonds go into Saturday’s tie against Forfar after a disastrous display against East Fife where they shipped six goals.
In the past month, the full-time club have been destroyed in Arbroath 7-1 and knocked out of the Scottish Cup by Cove Rangers, before another heavy loss to the Bayview men.
The off-field crisis has also been hanging over the club – with the group of Airdrie-minded businessmen fronted by Bobby Watson going through the due diligence process as they look to save the outfit from their current nightmare and purchase Tom Wotherspoon’s stake.
Despite the woes, hurting boss Findlay has pleaded with fans to continue to get behind the team.
“We are determined to put this right,” he told the Airdrie and Coatbridge Advertiser.
“Myself and the players are extremely disappointed.
“Make no mistake, the players understand what it means to the fans and nobody is hurting more that the people in that dressing room.
“It’s a difficult period for everyone at the club – both on and off the park.
“We all need to stand up and be counted. There is no hiding place, we have to roll up our sleeves and learn from the season so far.”
He continued: “I don’t believe we are as bad as some of our recent results suggest.
