Post-match reaction

 

Blue Toon manager Jim McInally:

“It was tough in the first half because if you watch how the opposition play against us, it is not normal lower league football where we have so much of the ball.”

“At our level, it is not as easy to open teams up when they sit it, until we score the goal, which was a fantastic goal.”

“I do not know how many passes were in the move but when we get the ball into the strikers we try to get it wide and get crosses in.”

“It was a wonderful goal and as far as shots at goal goes, we were not doing enough of that in the first half hour.”

“We had lots of the ball but did not do enough with it but the second half was completely different because we had the goal and Elgin had to come out.”

“If it was not for their goalkeeper, it could have been six or seven.”

 “We are on 22 points from nine games but it is not enough at the minute.”

“We need to try to get 22  points every quarter and if we get that, I am sure we would win the league.”

“We need to keep chasing Edinburgh, who have been fantastic and 24 points is a terrific start.”

“We have learnt lessons from last season and we need to keep going.”
