Post-match reaction


Blue Toon boss Jim McInally:

“We did not start well in the first 20 minutes and I thought Annan were far better than us but when they scored, we improved.” 

“In the second half, I thought we just edged it although there was not a lot in the game but it was all about the result.”

“I have been moaning about performances for weeks but Annan turned us over the last time down at their place and they will have a say between now and the end of the season.”

“Edinburgh are down there next week and Annan are a tough side so this was a big result for us.”

“It is a long way back for Clyde now and mentally it is tough for them.” 

“16 games undefeated and then that happens to them (four point deduction) so I can imagine what their manager and the players feel like after all the hard work.”

“But we can only look after ourselves and we have got our goal so all we can do is keep winning games.”


 Annan manager Peter Murphy:

“It was disappointing just with the manner in which we conceded the goals.”

“We were on the attack for the first goal and we got done by a counter-attack, which was not very good defensively.”

“In the second half, I thought we started well and there was not much in the game but we made a mistake and it cost us the second goal.”

“It was disappointing to lose the game but fair play to Peterhead, who were very efficient.”

“It is always a tough game up here but I am still pleased with the run we have been on and pleased with how my players acquitted themselves in this game apart from the two errors, which we need to tidy up on.”
