Broughty Athletic manager Jamie McCunnie started the year 2020 a happy man following his sides 3-1 away win at Kirriemuir Thistle on Saturday. The Fed went into the game missing several key players as well as returning from injury ones but the boys dug in and came home with the points. Read below the thoughts from the manager on the 3-1 victory…
“We knew we were in for a tough game on Saturday against Kirriemuir as it took a last-minute winner only a few weeks ago to take all three points from them at Whitton Park.
Things were made even more difficult considering we had Derryn Kesson, Jamie Reid, Adam McCracken and Brad Smith all missing for this game for one reason or another and Kieran Conway struggling to make the squad.
But full credit must go to the boys that were available on the day. We spoke to them on how we wanted the game to go and they stuck to the game plan and came out on top winning the game.
Our keeper, Sean Diamond, had some great saves early on in the game but the longer the game went on we grew into it and looked a threat going forward each time. The goals that won us the game came from some good finishing from Bryan Duell and Josh Skelly, getting us over the line and the three points. It was also good to see Ross McCord back playing for us as he’s been out for a while through injury so it was good to get him back.
The result on Saturday now sets us up for our next league game against our near neighbours, Carnoustie Panmure, who are already eight points clear at the top of the league and we need to close that gap. We’ll prepare with our training sessions during the week and be ready for Saturday…”.
As the manager states, Broughty welcome their near-neighbours next Saturday, Carnoustie Panmure, to Whitton Park in a top versus second place clash in the McBookie.com Super League. Kick-off is at 2-30pm.
