    Allan Maitland after Peterhead draw

    It was a difficult game today for both teams, as much as we wanted to win it, it was also so important not to lose. We have tried to play a lot of football this season and ended up on the end of the wrong sides of 3-2’s or 4-3’s whatever it might have been – so it was important to be solid at the back today and make sure the ball was as far away from our goal as possible which we probably did well, we tried to play up the big Jim Lister as early as possible and try and play off him, I thought we did that quite well in the first half but I don’t think we did it at all well in the second half and to be fair to Peterhead I thought they handled that very well as the game went on. And they created two or three good chances in the second half, again I have to view it as another point gained, a point last week and again today now we have a big game away to Brechin City on Tuesday night. Our biggest concern again for Tuesday is the fact that we had a few players unable to play today because of injury and then ten minutes into the game we loose our captain, Brown Ferguson off again injured so that does not help the continuity of the team, but I cannot fault the players again for lack of effort that we are not winning, however we are lacking that we bit of quality that comes through from not winning games along with a lack of confidence, so hopefully that goal will come which will lead to a victory sooner rather than later and we can relax and start playing again.
