Interim manager Jamie McCunnie spoke of his disappointment and praise for the opposing goalkeeper following his side’s chance to leave Fife with three points in Saturday following the 1-1 draw with Kennoway Star Hearts in the league. Read below what he had to say…
“The boys started the game well on Saturday and created a good few half chances in the game. But sadly a slip in concentration, a short back pass from us, allowed the Kennoway striker in on goal to make it 1-0. But we lifted ourselves and continued to press them.
Midway through the first half, we had a great chance to level things, Kevin Milne was brought down in the box for a penalty but Paul McLellan’s effort was saved by the Kennoway keeper. But gain we continued and pressed on and got a deserved equaliser a few minutes before half-time, Jamie Winter played in Kevin Milne who rounded the keeper and made it 1-1.
The second half was a frustrating half for us, we managed to create numerous chances but the woodwork and an excellent performance from the home keeper, who had a great game I must say, prevented us from leaving with what would have been a deserved three points and make it three out of three wins.
All in all its been an excellent start to the season so far, we’re unbeaten, and full credit goes to the players. We have seven points from three games and that sets us up nicely for our next game on Wednesday night against Lochee United, a game that will be a tough match for both sides. We have a couple of players carrying knocks but we’ll assess them the next day or two and see what’s what come Wednesday night…”
