Broughty Athletic manager Jim Finlayson was a delighted man following his sides 2-1 Super League win away to Sauchie on Saturday, giving his side three points in the process to move up to sixth in the league table. Read below what he had to say about the game…

“It was my first ever visit to Beechwood Park on Saturday in all my time in Junior football and to return home with the three points was even more pleasing. It was a hard-fought game between us and Sauchie but I thought we thoroughly deserved to win and take the points. Very happy with the lads to get the win.

The score may have only been 2-1 but we could have won by a bigger margin if not for the few great chances we had that weren’t converted. On another day the lads know the goals would have come. I was pleased to see Brian Clark get his first goal for the club this season and Kev Milne getting on the scoresheet again. We were 2-0 up and in control but lost a late goal in the dying minutes and young John Sinclair in our goal pulled off a couple of good saves for us during the game.

A point against a good Bonnyrigg side last week and these three points away from home bode us well going into another tough away fixture at Bo’ness next Saturday in the league. They nearly came back to level in a cup game on Saturday after being 4-1 down so we know it’ll be a tough one next week but we’ll prepare midweek. We should have two or three extra bodies back in the side who missed Saturday’s game, namely Garry Kenneth, Iain Ross and Derryn Kesson which is a bonus to the squad…

The Fed travel to Newtown Park to face former 2014 Super League champions Bo’ness United next Saturday with a 1-45pm kickoff.
