    Delighted to have collected another three points which keeps us top of the league, we could not have asked for a better start to the season and it was important going into the International break we kept up our good early form today. I have had two good spells with Allan Maitland before and I have always been successful working along with him, so I am enjoying playing my football again and delighted he has given me another chance, Alloa Athletic showed faith in me paying money for my transfer back from junior football and again to a higher lever, I wanted to play at as high a level as I could again and it is Allan who has given me the chance again, our aim is to win the league and I want to be part of it. Although not at our best today we deserved to win, but we still have other options going forward, we still have Stuart Noble to come back, Stuart is missing just now due to injury. The boys are all enjoying their football but there is still more to come from this Alloa side, we have still not played to our full potential and hopefully in the coming weeks in training we will start to be a bit sharper and finding our shape, but I think once this comes we will be a force to be reckoned with. There is no place for sentiment in football and today it was strange scoring against my old club, confidence is sky high at the minute at Alloa, although we only scored one goal today, I think we should have had at two or three. I have had a connection with Clyde Football Club for seven or eight years in the past, this is where I grew up playing football so it is sad to see the way the club is at the moment but that is just how football is at the minute and there are other teams in the same boat, I just hope they soon move forward again and times get better for them.
