Peterhead 1 East Stirlingshire 0

Sat 14 Jan 2012

Blue Toon manager Jim McInally had mixed feelings after watching his side grind out a 1-0 win over former club East Stirlingshire.

Dennis Wyness netted the only goal of the game eleven minutes before the interval, after Shire keeper Callum Antell had dived full length to push away a Scott Ross header.

McInally said "It was a good result but a poor second half. We were worried about the comedown from last week but I thought we overcame it because first half we played some decent football and could have had two or three goals.

"I told them at half-time to keep at it because I knew East Stirling would keep at it. They’ve got a mentality that whatever goes against them, they stick at it. For 15 minutes in the second half they gave us a really tough time and could have got a couple of goals.

"I thought we saw the game out fairly well but it just wasn’t good enough, especially second half, and the players know that. They’ve now won three out of four games, though, and winning’s a habit. Hopefully it’s a habit we can get them used to."
