Broughty Athletic manager Jamie McCunnie was a disappointed man for the second game on the trot following his side’s exit from the DJ Laing East Region Cup on Saturday. With a league defeat last Saturday he was looking for a reaction from his side going in against Dundee North End in the cup competition. Read what he had to say below…
“Saturday’s game proved to be a disappointing one and seen us exit the cup, we are holders of, at the first hurdle. Full credit to North End though who dug deep, frustrated us, and then eventually went through on penalties.
As for the game, I thought we dominated possession without really looking like putting the ball in the back of the net. Young Alassan Jones scored a good goal for us before half time to level the score but apart from that, I could count on one hand the number of clear chances we created in front of their goal.
It’s always disappointing when you get knocked out of any cup competition in a season but I don’t think we did ourselves justice on the day. Looking to next Saturday, we will freshen things up for the game against Luncarty at Whitton Park and look to be more of a threat in the attacking areas on the park”.
As the manager says, Broughty are back on Super League business next Saturday against fourth-placed Luncarty at Whitton Park with kick-off at 2-30pm.
