With his side fresh off a 5th round Scottish Cup win last weekend, Fed manager Jamie McCunnie knew his side faced a tough test when they faced local side Dundee North End, who incidentally are managed by former Broughty coach Tony McAuley, in the league, and three points were a must.
Read below what he had to say on the game and win…
“Well, that was a game of two halfs on Saturday against North End. I thought we started the first half quite well but after ten minutes or so we started to overplay on a heavy park and made some poor decisions when in safe possession of the ball. In fairness to North End, they caused us problems and should have taken the lead midway through the first half. But fortunately for us, we managed to go in 1-0 ahead after an error by their keeper.
As for the second half, I thought we were much better, particularly in midfield and caused them problems in the forward areas. The boys managed to get up and support Bryan Duell and it was good to see Brad Smith get on the score sheet with two goals after some good play at the edge of their box.
Our third goal was a good break from the back with a weighted pass from Ross McCord for Brad to show complete composure by finishing with the outside of his left boot to seal the win (pictured).
We now move onto this Saturday ahead, the first of a doubleheader with Scone Thistle, we still have a couple of players missing with injury, Josh Skelly and Ryan Ferguson, so we will work with them on the treatment table try and get them back as soon as it’s possible. This Saturday’s game is a Thortons Property League Cup game followed by a Super League fixture the week after with both games at home…”
As Jamie says, it cup action this Saturday at Whitton Park with fellow Super League side Scone Thistle the opposition in the Thorntons Property League Cup, kick-off is at 2-30pm.
