    Jim Goodwin after home draw against Stranraer

    Disappointed with the result, it was a game we wanted to win of course, disappointed with the goals, two good goals from Stranraer’s point of view, but we should have stopped the cross for the first one, it was a  great finish from Scott Agnew. I’m really disappointed at the free kick which lead to the second goal, Jason Marr slides in, wins the ball, it actually goes back the way and a free kick is awarded, he gets booked and then Willie Gibson has that in his locker, it was a great strike you can’t take that away from him, but I’m a bit deflated, we bossed the first half, I don’t think we played particularly great in the second half but at the same time the boys showed great determination and character but far too often lately we have been allowing the opposition the first goal, then we have had to dig deep to get ourselves back into games. When we got ourselves back to 2-2 we had another couple of chances where we could have nicked it but I think over the whole piece a draw was probably a fair result.

    Iain Flannigan was missing tonight, he picked up a knock at Peterhead, he has a dead leg which he wasn’t able to shake off, I’m hoping he might be fit for Saturday. Kevin Cawley came back into the side, he was missing at Peterhead after picking up ankle knock in training. We have plenty of options, Steven Hetherington is also back in the squad but we would like to bring him back a little bit at a time. We will look forward to the transfer window and do our best at strengthening the side, I would like to bring in two or three more players, but only if they add quality, it will not be the case just to make up numbers they would need to add value to the side, but everybody out there is trying to do the same thing so we are fishing in a small pond at the minute but we will do everything we can to bring in the right people.
