BAJFC manager Keith Gibson gives us his views on his side’s third win on the trot following Saturday’s 2-0 away win at Fauldhouse United in the Super League. Read below what he had to say on the game…
“It was great to get another win on Saturday in the Super League, against Fauldhouse United following our win over Dundonald Bluebell the week before, and it was a comfortable one without us really being at our best on the day but we’ll take the 2-0 win and the three points.
In the first half, we started very well but Fauldhouse had a couple of chances due to us switching off, our keeper Iain Ross (pictured left) once again coming to our rescue with some great saves. We went on and scored two well-worked goals courtesy of our strikers Shaka Roy and Kevin Buchan and deserved to be 2-0 up at half time.
In the second half we controlled large parts of the game despite Fauldhouse going down to ten men following a last man challenge on Paul McLellan and we played some good stuff and cut Fauldhouse open but we just couldn’t get the third goal we deserved. I’m over critical of the players at times and I was probably like that yesterday after the game as I felt we could have played better but after reflecting on the game it was a really good, professional performance from the players. It’s always tough away from home in the Super League so to take the three points was massive for us.
We welcomed back Brian Clark to the squad following his recent injury, having been out for several weeks, last week as an unused sub against Dundonald Bluebell, but we brought him on midway through the second half against Fauldhouse and he played well in his time on the pitch. He gives us more attacking options upfront from the middle of the park or a wide position.
We’ve now won our last three games since our 1-1 draw away to Penicuik Athletic in the league at the start of March, with two in the league and one in the GA Cup, and we need to take confidence from it. Another positive point is we’ve only conceded two goals and both were penalties against us so defensively we’re looking a lot more solid at the moment. We now play Broxburn Athletic in the third round of the EOS Cup next week which will be a really tough game and we’ll need to be at our best to take anything from there…”
