Broughty Athletic manager Keith Gibson saw his side bring their mini five-game unbeaten run to an end following his side’s 2-1 home defeat to Broxburn Athletic on Saturday, a result leaving his side still in twelfth position in the Super League. Read below what he had to say on the game and defeat…
“We started the game very well and were well on top for the first 30/35 minutes and created 2 or 3 excellent chances through Jake Mair (pic below) and Kevin Buchan. Broxburn came into it the last 10 minutes and started to put us under more pressure, then we lost the goal at the worst time possible just into injury time.
We were looking for a big reaction in the second half but to be honest we never really got going for the first 10 minutes, we then got back into the game with a great finish from Brian Clark, scoring his first for the club and playing an excellent game. After the goal, I felt the momentum was with us and we created numerous chances to take the lead. But again for the second successive week, we lose a goal from about 25 yards which wasn’t closed down. Fair play to the players we pushed to get the equaliser but at times we left ourselves exposed at the back and Broxburn had 2 or 3 really good chances to kill the game off.
Overall I’m gutted not to have taken anything from the game but when we’re on top in games we need to start putting away our chances. We’ve got another massive game this Wednesday away at Carnoustie and I’m sure the players will be hungry to get a positive result against them. A quick special mention I feel has to go to our young reserve goalkeeper, John Sinclair, he had a great game and made a few good save’s at crucial times in the game…”
