    Jim Goodwin after victory in Scottish Cup

    When the draw came out we knew it was the potential to be a bit of a banana skin, Brechin City are a decent team, I know they have had an up and down couple of weeks beating Forfar Athletic 4-0 and then losing heavily last week to Arbroath. I thought my players managed the game brilliantly with a very professional performance from start to finish, we knew we would have a lot of the ball and I thought we moved the ball really well at times in games like that you can drop the tempo and it gets a bit slow and mundane but the players never allowed that to happen and we kept passing and probing and looking for the right opportunities to get forward. The game finished 3-0 and we are delighted with that but I thought we could have had other three or four goals on top of that. A clean sheet, plenty of goals and a decent performance for the fans as well, so all round a decent day.

    We played to our strengths today, getting the ball down and passing it about, the pleasing thing for me today is we did this for the majority of the game and had 75% of the possession which we expected, but I was more satisfied of what we did with it and the amount of opportunities we created. At 1-0 at half-time Brechin City were always in the game but it was pleasing we went out and got the second goal so early on in the second half and the game then became a little more comfortable.
