We need to believe says youngster Caddis

YOUNG midfielder Liam Caddis says the Lichties must keep the belief that they are able to win their second championship in two seasons.

The 19-year-old, who is on loan until the end of the season from St Johnstone, netted twice in just 15 minutes against East Fife on Saturday.

However, it was a similar story to the game against Airdrie last Wednesday which saw the Gayfield men leading but then being held to a draw.

And even though Saturday marked his first two goals in a maroon shirt, Caddis was still disappointed with the overall result.

He said: “There is always disappointment after you have been leading especially as Cowdenbeath only got a draw too.

“In the first half early on we did well but they managed to pull it back and we couldn’t get going again after that.

“The season is getting close to the end now and what we need to do is believe, push on and hopefully we can do it.

“We just have to kick ourselves and move on as there are enough good players here who can do it.”

Caddis has been at Gayfield since November when he initially joined on a month long loan.

However, this was extended until the end of the season in the January transfer window with Saints’ boss Steve Lomas sending him to gain experience.

Come the end of the season, Caddis will have come to the end of his contract at McDiarmid Park and that is why he will be eager to impress in the last remaining nine games.

He added: “Saturday was my first full 90 minutes in a while and it is always brilliant to get that under your belt.

“The reason I came here is to get games and that is what I am trying to do.

“I’m still young and my contract runs out at the end of the season and maybe I could get a new one but I will just have to wait and see.”
