Boss disappointed with defeat however performance shows progress

Aug 8, 2021

Peterhead manager Jim McInally found positives in his side’s display despite their 2-1 defeat at Falkirk in their first League 1 away match of the season.

Jim spoke last night about penalty decisions before and after Craig McGuffie and Paul Dixon scored for the Bairns and Jordon Brown grabbed a late consolation and this moring he reflected on the Blue Toon’s display.

Jim said: “You never look losing and I have to admit that for several periods of the game we were pushed back and saw little of the ball. Brett Long made three good saves, and you could look at that and think, it was another of those displays we put in at Falkirk where we never seem to get going however this one was not like that.”

“However we caused them a few problems which was pleasing as in other games here we have never looked like scoring. Also at two nil down the players could have felt sorry for themselves and folded. We were not awarded what I believe to be two penalties however for the final 15 minutes of the game we played some good stuff and had energy all over the park.”

“I left The Falkirk Stadium disappointed however I have been much more disappointed when I have left in the past.”
