    Allan Maitland after Peterhead victory

    In the preview for today’s game, I had been saying all our previous games against Peterhead had been really open with plenty of goals, today I thought it was the complete opposite to that, neither of the two teams played well, we did improve after half time and created a couple of chances in the second half, however a least during these times when not playing well we are defending well, digging in, scot Buist and Scott walker did extremely well but it would be unfair to single these players out as the back four and the goalkeeper did well and at 1 -0 and Peterhead pushing for an equaliser David Crawford blocked a Martin Bavidge effort which Scot Buist cleared from the line. Even although we we are not playing well, we were defending well, and you always know with Brian Carrigan, Stuart Noble, Andy Scott and Hugh Kerr who came on late in the game, that we have something that might give us something different, and that’s exactly what happened Andy Scott provided the real quality getting away and creating the opportunity for Stuart Noble to score the vital goal. Then just right after the goal Andy Scott had another opportunity which was very similar to the goal but the referee ruled this effort as being offside, we are pleased to win but there is an awful lot more still to come from this team, we can play a lot better than that. I think the fact that it had been raining really heavy this week, but the park was really dry today with the sun and wind drying the park and the ball was really sticky on the park, I don’t think that helped. However not playing well and winning is a lot better than last year I can assure you, last year we played much better at times and lost 4-3 and 3-2, so I would take today’s result any day of the week. In the moment we are doing fine and I am pleased the way things are going.
