Max Allan’s low drive doubled the home side’s advantage before Nico McBride added a quick-fire double to put Bute out of reach of their visitors - and though the goal glut players and fans might have been expecting failed to materialise, the result nonetheless was the ideal pick-me-up for the islanders after their 4-2 defeat against Eastwood seven days previously.
