    Peter Grant after victory at Gayfield

    I was pleased with an awful lot of today’s game but naturally disappointed at the goals we lost, the first one was another free kick, from a similar area to Tuesday’s nights free kick against Stirling Albion, that’s three goals we have lost from the exact same area giving silly free kick’s away, so that is disappointing and the second goal was a bit of a fluke with the wind assisting, but we made it hard for our selves, I thought we played a lot of good stuff but need to be more clinical and take care of the ball in certain areas, Arbroath is not an easy venue to come and I thought we played very well.

    I want our wide players to be involved in the game as a team we need to attack together and not being out on the line not being involved, Kevin Cawley has too much ability to be out just on the wing and has been brought more into the middle to be involved more and I think he has had a big effect in every game we have played and is getting better and better, he is a great team player and talented individual.

    We again go into this season the same as every other team, we are there to challenge, we want to win the league or qualify and aim for the promotion play-off’s, it is not all about survival, we have players who can play and we have to be brave enough to play, of course there are things we need to iron out but Jim Goodwin left a very good side here and hopefully we can build on that and be better, I am still trying to bring three or four players in to make the group stronger. We have Robbie Thomson coming back now from injury, we have not seen much of him that’s his first 30 minutes of competitive football this season and he is a different type of player as we also have with Kevin O’Hara as well, so we now have different types of strikers we can call upon, Andy Stirling came on today and did well but he has to be more consistent because he has the talent.

    The players from day one when I joined the club have been fantastic, that’s great credit to the past managers who have went before me, they have set that standard and we now look to build on it and get better on the football pitch and the only way to do that is by the players learning, and bringing quality football players to the club to play along with them in that affordable market we are in.
