    Paul Hartley after victory over Shire

    We didn’t start today’s game particularly well, but their goal certainly woke us up, it wasn’t until the final 20 minutes of the first half and certainly in the second half every time we attacked we looked capable of scoring today. We scored some really good goals and of course I am delighted we are at the top of the league but we will not get carried away – we must keep it going and roll on to next week, today’s game is finished and we will look forward to our next game. I was delighted that Robbie Winters got on the score sheet today, he had not scored since he came to the club – his work rate and linkup play was really good today and he started the game, after Kevin Cawley had missed last week’s game at Annan, we thought we would introduce him later in the match on this occasion, Robbie gave us a good 60 minutes and scored a good goal, indeed it was pleasing to see five different goal scorers, Stevie May scored his 11th goal, Ryan Harding got his 1st goal for the club, Ross McCord scored a cracking goal and Craig Campbell rounded it off with a spectacular effort, we scored some really good goals today and I’m pleased for everybody. Today was a great team performance, I wasn’t happy with the first twenty minutes of the game, I said that to the players at half-time – we have to be better than that, but it was night and day from the first half performance to that in the second, everybody played their part Stevie May is always a threat, he has been great for us since he came., but everybody played their part today. Even after losing such an early goal I knew we would come back because of the type of players we have at the club – we keep going and even at 5-1 up we still wanted to score more goals, I knew we would get back into the game and chances would open up – today was great, however because we took some of these chances!
