Broughty Athletic manager Jamie McCunnie couldn’t hide his frustration when he sat down with our website admin team following Saturday’s 3-3 result with visitors Hill of Beath. Despite being disappointed he was also pleased with his squad of players. Read what he had to say below…
“I’m very disappointed to come away from Saturday’s game with only one point when it should have been all three and to make matters worse, conceding a penalty deep into injury-time made it all the worse for me.
I thought we played well for large parts of the game and we scored two really well-worked goals but there are a few things we need to make sure we learn from, one, in particular, is game management when we’ve done well to build up a comfortable lead in a game. That said, I’m pleased with how the way my players tried to play on a heavy pitch at Whitton Park.
Young Derryn Kesson took his goal well, he was comfortable on the ball and curled a cracker around the keeper. Great to see Greig McNaughton on the scoresheet too although how he scored with his eyes tightly shut is still baffling us all, but joking aside, he met the ball, racing away from goal may I add, and put it in the net (pictured left & below). He then went on and played a major part in our third goal too, providing the inch-perfect cross after pushing forward down the right side for Kevin Milne to score in the box.
We now look forward to another away trip, we have a few to go, as we make the journey to face Camelon next Saturday who are doing really well recently, they have been coming out with some good results as have we so its a chance for the lads to go there and continue our good run of form and results and go full of confidence from the way we have been playing in recent weeks. They have two games in hand on us and trail us by one point so a wee win for us would help us stay in the top half of the table…”
