Can't actually work out how we didn't score. Borini and Defoe should have had a hat-trick each. 4 points is a massive gap. Gutted. #SAFC— Zach McAskill (@ZachMcAskill) April 2, 2016
Defoe could have got about 3 in the first half and Borini the same in the second! #safc— Kelly-Leigh Cooper (@kl_coop) April 2, 2016
