Broughty Athletic stretched their winning streak in the Super League to five games following their narrow 2-1 win over visitors Kirriemuir Thistle on Saturday at Whitton Park. Goals from Bryan Duell and Derryn Kesson, right at the death, were enough to seal the points.
On the day, the Fed welcomed back into the starting eleven midfielder Ross McCord and gave recent new signing Jamie Reid (pictured below) his first start for the club. Read below what manager Jamie McCunnie thought on the game and his sides’ performance…
“Saturday proved to be a very tough test for us but I’m glad we managed to secure the three points. We are honest enough to say on Saturday we were far from at our best but I can’t praise the boys enough for the character and togetherness they showed.
Losing the late goal, Kirrie’s equaliser, looked like we had dropped two points but the players gave it one final push and managed to get the winner from Derryn Kesson. Even in the last few minutes we managed to push forward with pace and score a great team goal. The boy’s fitness levels are really impressive and that showed even when the clock was running down we still had the energy to break from our own box to score the winner. Personally, I thought the subs that came on yesterday were excellent and really affected the game in a positive way for us.
Finally full credit to Kirrie, they came with a game plan and were one of, if not the most, organised teams we have played against this season. Darren Scott, their manager, is doing a great job there and I’m sure when we play them later on in the season we will be in for another tough game.
We move on now to next week where we welcome Luncarty to Whitton Park. We played them not too long ago at theirs and only came away with a point in a 2-2 draw. But we are hopeful next Saturday that we manage to come away with all three points but there’s still a lot of work to be done on the training park before then…”
