Manager's Programme Notes


Good afternoon and welcome to the Kilmac Stadium for today's match.

I'd like to start by welcoming Steven and his backroom staff along to the match.

It was another frustrating match on Wednesday evening against St. Johnstone, We were in control of the game but being in control, creating chances. looking like a good footballing team and moving the ball about isn't going to win us games.

Putting the ball in the back of the net will do that. That's what we need to do. You do that and you get a foothold in the game, you have that bit of security and your confidence grows.

It's hard because you watch that first 60 minutes and the players look confident, they are creating chances and moving the ball. The ball just isn't going in the net.

It was a hard one to take particularly after the chances we had in the first half. I feel like a broken record though as I am coming out and saying the same things.

The first one was a poor goal. It was a set play and it was ridiculous that we lost that goal. It was really poor defending and the same at the second goal.

I can't fault the effort. People can look at us and say we are playing nice football but we are just not putting the ball in the back of the net.

People are getting fed up with me saying it and I am getting fed up saying it. We could have been giving St Johnstone a mountain to climb in the second half but we didn't do that.

At this level we have to be ruthless and start scoring goals. It is frustrating but we have been back on the training pitch and are determined to put it right.
