Peterhead 0-1 Brechin: Dugout Reaction

Sun 12 Mar 2017

PETERHEAD MANAGER JIM MCINALLY
 
"It was a disappointing goal to lose and I thought a draw would have been a fairer reflection of the game."
 
"I know Brechin missed a few chances after they went ahead but by that time we had pushed players on and the game had become a bit false."
 
"But once again, a corner kick came in and we did not clear it well enough and then their player had a mis-hit shot, which broke out to a team-mate from a few yards out."
 
"That is how things are going for us just now and it was a long way back for us after that because obviously we were missing Rory."
 
"I have no complaints about the efforts of the players but in games like this when the margins are so fine, you have to take your opportunities when they come along and we had a good one in the first half."
 
"You know that games are going to be tight and it is tough especially when you are without your top man but I thought Nicky Riley, who we chose to play through the middle, did really well until he tired."
 
"We just need to keep going."
 
"The way the other results went, nothing has really changed but that is not any consolation."
 
 
 
BRECHIN PLAYER-BOSS DARREN DODS
 
"This is always a hard place to come to but that is back to back wins now and our first clean sheet for a while so it was pleasing." 
 
"We had a couple of chances towards the end to kill the match but I am just happy we were able to see it out."
 
"Peterhead were missing Rory in this game and he gives them 20-odd goals a season."
 
"Nicky Riley is a good player and in Grant Anderson, they have someone with lots of Championship experience so these players will be vital for Peterhead now."
 
"I think we have been waiting all season for them to go on a run and start climbing the league and I think it will happen."
 
"They still have eight games left and I think they will pick up the points to help them get up the table."
