    Paul Hartley after defeat by Cowdenbeath

    The better team won today, in terms of chances they had, we were way off it in terms of the standard we have set over the season, that is the worst we have played all season, we didn’t get going today, I couldn’t put my finger on it, we were really flat, we had no energy and no intention about our play. We had a chance to go third in the table today, which I had said to the players before the start of today’s game, a real incentive to get into that top four and get ourselves up there – but we didn’t perform, we had too many players below par, we had one star performer and that was the goalkeeper but in terms of the rest them, we need to do better and I now have to pick a team for next week to compete down at Dumfries against Queen of the South. I was disappointed in the disallowed goal, it was their defender who played it back, but it is the way it goes sometimes in football. If we had got a point today I would have been pleased but I thought in how they played and on goal chances they were by far the better team. It is always a concern when you are not scoring goals, especially at home, we have been really good defensively but in terms of at the other end of the park we do not have somebody who scores 15 or 20 goals a season and they are hard to come by, but we are trying our best and I’m trying to get a couple of players in before the next week or so, we must keep at it, goal scorers everybody wants them but I will try my best to get a couple in during this transfer window.
