BAJFC manager Jim Finlayson couldn’t hide his disappointment as he saw his side lose a comfortable 3-2 halftime lead to finish 3-3 away from home to Bo’ness United on Saturday in the Super League. Read below what he had to say about the game…
“We brought a point home with us on Saturday but ultimately it should have been the three, but at the end of the day, coming home from Newtown Park with a point is a good point. The lads played well during the first half, some really good football was on display throughout the team against a decent Bo’ness side and a strong wind in the park.
We scored three good goals from Hayzer, Clarky and Kev despite going behind early on and that showed great character. If not for a great save from Iain Ross in our goal the scoreline could have been a lot closer going in at halftime.
But the second half we somehow took our foot of the pedal and let the home side back into the game, something I said to the players at halftime I didn’t want to happen. They scored twice to level the game with the equaliser late on, but I thought we could have gone on and nicked the winner in the final minutes but we didn’t so had to settle for a deserved point. I’m disappointed with the goals we let in, giving away needless possession and fouls. We also lost Ryan Blair to a red card, something that could have been avoided.
Special mention has to go to Jamie McCunnie (pictured) coming back from his recent injury, I asked him if he was ready to return and play ninety minutes and he was and gave us much-needed experience in our defence. We’ve still got Suttie and McLellan to come back so things are looking up. That’s three games unbeaten for us in the league and we’ll be looking to continue the run going into next Saturday’s away game at Tayport in the GA Cup. It’s a tough place to go and get a result, but we’ll give it our best shot and plan during the week with our training sessions…”
