PETERHEAD 4-3 STIRLING ALBION
POST-MATCH THOUGHTS

 

PETERHEAD MANAGER JIM MCINALLY

“As far as I am concerned, that is probably our best three points of the season.”

“At half-time, Stirling might have thought the game was in the bag because that is probably as bad as the wind has been this season.”

“It is farcical when a goalkeeper kicks the ball and it is nearly blowing straight back to him.”

“But sometimes it is as hard to play with the wind as it is against it and we knew at half-time we were still good enough, if we could get into advanced positions, to create chances.”

“Generally, I felt our second half performance was terrific and I am so happy for big Russell to go on and show people that, apart from his size, he has got a bit of skill about him.”

“His second goal, especially, was a fantastic finish, so I’m delighted for him, the team and for Rory because he has had a traumatic week with his wee boy so this result is brilliant.”

 

STIRLING ALBION MANAGER DAVE MACKAY

“At the start of the second half with the wind behind us, we played in the right areas and put Peterhead under pressure.”

“But the four goals we conceded in the match were poor, every one of them woeful.”

“To concede from a corner inside the first minute, the keeper has got to do better.”

“The second one, we think the ball is going out for a throw-in on the far side but then our player kicks it into our own box, which causes havoc and we concede a penalty.”

“For the third goal, it was a bit naive from a young defender, who got rolled, and for the last one, their player is standing in 20 to 30 yards of space. How he can be afforded that room is incredible.”

“We shot ourselves in the foot because when you score three goals away from home, you should be getting something.”

“Just the way we defended was not good enough.”
