Sun 06 Jan 2019

PETERHEAD 1-2 CLYDE

POST-MATCH REACTION

 

Peterhead manager Jim McInally

“I thought the better side won.”

“We were fortunate to be ahead, although there was too much in the game in the first half.”

“We did not sit back deliberately in the second half.  We were just pushed back by Clyde, who did not actually hurt us too much.”

“But the annoying thing was that we were done in by a long ball and then we got picked off again for the second goal.”

“Probably, I did not make the right substitutions either.”

“I kept changing the shape of the team to try and alter the course of the game because I could see were getting over-run.”

“Sometimes it pays off for you and sometimes it does not so I probably failed the players as far as the substitutions go.”

“But I have got a lot of respect for Clyde , although I am not so sure they have got the same respect for us the way they came in and started shouting and bawling.”

“I thought that was bang out of order but it has been noted and if we can win our game in hand, we will go five points clear of them again.”

 

 

Clyde boss Danny Lennon

“We have come to this venue a few times now during my time with Clyde and have come away empty-handed on the back of good footballing performances.”

“This match was all about being brave and being hungry for the ball, in and out of possession, and I thought we showed that in abundance.”

“Even after the setback of the goal that we gifted, the response was good and the tempo was excellent throughout.”

“To get those two good quality goals, particularly the second one, was very, very pleasing because we know how hard a venue this is.”

“We have the upmost respect for Peterhead but this was the first time in a while we had won up here.”

“We maybe went over the top with the celebrations but it is something we have not had too often so we will enjoy it and then bring ourselves back down to earth.”
