PETERHEAD 2 QUEEN'S PARK 1: REACTION

Mon 16 Sep 2013

Jim McInally again praised his players for their character, after watching them come from behind to record a first home league win of the season against Queen's Park.

The Blue Toon had fallen behind to Tony Quinn's strike midway through the first half, but Rory McAllister struck before the interval and then set up the winner for Fraer McLaren five minutes after the break.

McInally said "It was pleasing to come back from a goal down again. The players are a bit disappointed, which is amazing really but it shows their standards.

"They were quiet in the dressing room, but I told them to enjoy winning because it is the name of the game. It's goosd in a sense that they are disappointed.

"Our goalkeeper has not had a save to make and we had chances to make the game safe. But still, the players showed a lot of character again to come from behind."

McInally was pleased with the way his side defended other than the goal they lost, but admits the points should have been made safe.

"It was a set-piece we conceded from," he added. "It was clever movement from the Queen's Park player, and sometimes you have to give credit to the opposition.

"In general play we were never opened up so that's a positive, but we should have put the game to bed."
