    Barry Smith after defeat by Cowdenbeath

    We were second best all over the park today, and had a crazy spell after getting back level, we weren’t sharp enough today, we looked flat and when you are flat against a team like Cowdenbeath you are going to have your work cut out because they are structured to make it difficult, especially after going 1-0 down. Their goalkeeper has had some great saves but I’m disappointed after such a positive performance last week against Hearts, to go and show a pedestrian performance today we are disappointed at that. After going 3-1 down we threw bodies forward but we must be better than that and the goals we conceded all came from mistakes by ourselves. We don’t want to be bottom of the table at any time but there’s a long way to go yet. The players know that the performance today was not enough and they have to to get back to the high levels of performances we have already seen this season at our previous home games against Hibs, Hearts and Rangers. We had a lot of pressure in the last 15 – 20 minutes but overall I don’t think it was a performance that I recognise from an Alloa team.
