PETERHEAD 1-1 ALBION ROVERS

Post-match reaction

 

Peterhead manager Jim McInally:

 

“There have been many games this season where we have been one goal ahead and we have managed to get over the line.”

 “But before the goal was scored, I said it was only a matter of time before we get caught with one and in fairness it was a fantastic finish.”

“It can happen because one is never enough and it seemed to me that once we scored our goal, we never really got a grip of the game again.”

“We got a break with our goal because I don’t think Jack’s shot was going in but we did not see it out, the same as last week and we got punished against a team that are fighting for their lives.”

“There is no doubt there is pressure.”

“That is what happens in football and when you get to this stage of the season, you have got to stand up and be counted.”

“I would have killed for this position and I told the players that in the dressing room.”

“I was hard on them last week but they need to dust themselves down and go up to Elgin next week and try to win the game.”

 

Albion boss Kevin Harper:

“The boys have been giving absolutely everything.”

“We were disappointed last week because our standards dropped but we knew we had to come up here to the league leaders and not be outfought.”

“I did not think we were outplayed either and if we perform like we did here and like we have done in the last five weeks apart from the Queen’s Park game, we will have a chance of staying in the league.”

“But when it is mathematically possible to go down, you still have to work your socks off.
