Post-match reaction


Peterhead manager Jim McInally:

“It was a good three points.”

“I was really angry at half-time because we scored at a good time and had started brightly.”

“But then we went into the same mode as last week by not putting our best foot forward or being brave on the ball.”

“We had a real go at the players at half-time but it did not really work until Queen’s Park scored.”

“I don’t know if subconsciously they went on the back foot a bit after equalising but certainly we went on to have a better control of the game without playing particularly well.”

“It was pleasing to win the game but there is still a long way to go as far as performances go, that is for sure.”

“But this is a big victory.” 

“I hate games in hand and I hate people talking about games in hand and unfortunately in the last couple of seasons, we have had plenty of them.”


Queen’s Park Head Coach Mark Roberts:

“I was happy when we got the goal back because we knew if we put Peterhead under pressure, we would get a chance.”

“But then we conceded a poor goal from our point of view because it was a free hit from the edge of the box and we could not get a block on it and I think it went through the keeper’s legs.”

“After that, we were still well in the game and could definitely have taken something but the bottom line is we go back down the road beaten.”

“That is disappointing and we are in the horrible situation where we are not going to get promoted or relegated so it is just about getting the players into the mindset of turning defeats into draws and draws into wins.”

“We are in a good run of form but are not getting the points we deserve at the moment.”
