Broughty Athletic manager Keith Gibson gives his thoughts on his side’s latest 1-0 home defeat on Saturday against Camelon, their second in a row in the league following their 4-3 defeat to Carnoustie Panmure three weeks ago.
Read below what he had to say about the game and his side’s lack of finishing…
“We started Saturday’s game against visitors Camelon brightly and we created some really good chances throughout the first half and to be honest we could have gone in at halftime with 3 or 4 goals to our name but for poor finishing throughout the players who had decent chances.
The second half was quite even regarding play but I felt after Camelon scored they created more clear cut chances than us and without some great goalkeeping from Iain Ross in our goal we could have found ourselves further behind than just by the one goal. Some of his saves were first class and really showed what a great keeper he is that we have at the club.
That’s two defeats on the trot now for us, both at home too, and for me, we’ve not reached the standards we have set ourselves this season in those defeats. Although we lost the game there are still lots of positives to take from the ninety minutes but we lost a really sloppy goal and that’s what lost us the game along with poor finishing. We created 16 chances in the game but only managed one shot on target and we had 18 crosses within the game, maybe it was just one of those days? Who knows, but Camelon went home with the points. If we hadn’t created anything in the game I would be concerned but we had chances, plenty of chances, especially in the first half.
We now go to Bo’ness United next week in the Super League, a place where we won 1-0 last season, it’s never an easy place to go but I’ll be looking for much of the same from the players as we did on Saturday but with us having a cutting edge to our play and putting the ball in the net…”
