Redlands United coach Nick Dibbs was disappointed in his sides result on Saturday night.
"The results, scoreline or the performance was not good enough, I'm slightly embarrassed to be quiet honest," he said.
"The boys have to react and they got to be consistent in our attitude, in our effort and how we approach games but there were some good moments, however, keeping the ball and the simple things have to be done a little better.
"I am disappointed, I'm really sorry to the club for us to come back after a long time away to a performance like that," Dibbs said.
Redlands went down 6-2 to Cairns FC on Saturday night in their first game at the Cleveland Showgrounds after spending eight weeks away from their home ground.
Cairns pushed Redlands from the start as they used their fast forwards to sprint down the wings on the counter and were able to capitalise as they opened the scoring before four minutes later their lead was gone as they fouled a Redlands attacker on the way to goal.
Alex Warrilow converted the penalty before Cairns took back the lead from the restart.
Cairns went on to score two more, one before and after halftime before Redlands replied as Robert Kramer brought the ball up the side, passing it in for Jake Sherwood to tap it in.
Cairns went on to score twice with Joshua Taylor finishing off his hat-trick.
Redlands face Brisbane Roar Youth on Saturday at Logan Metro Sports Complex.
