Very disappointed with the end result, the first half I thought we played really well, the second half I don’t think we started we couldn’t get out of our own half for the first fifteen minutes in the second half.

I thought we played great in the first half, dominated the game without really creating any real clear cut chances. I knew that Barry would be looking for a reaction from his players at the start of the second half, we spoke about that at half-time, to expect them to come out all guns blazing and they did, that didn’t surprise us but the first goal for me was so disappointing, to have defended as well as we have, to concede a goal so soft – the cross comes in but we have to deal with it, Greig Spence is free two yards from goal with a simple header for him. We highlighted these things during the week and unfortunately we weren’t able to snuff it out. Goals change games I know it is an old cliché but it is a fact, we kept going right until the end, I felt if we had made it 2-1 earlier in the game and given us a bit more time on the clock it might have given us a better chance to take something from the game.

Very disappointed to lose the last two games, I think we have played well in both games but yet we have nothing to show for it, everybody who wasn’t here does care how well we might have played they just look at the end result and we have now picked up no points in our last two games and I feel as if we deserved to have a couple at least.

PJ was booked just before half-time for simulation, I don’t think there was enough contact for to warrant a penalty, there was a possible coming together, I don’t think it was a dive, I understand why the referee has booked him, if he deemed it was that way but it is not something we encourage and the wee man is so quick in and around the box the slightest touch could set him off balance but it is not one we will fall out over.
