Absolutely delighted with the victory today. We once again had 6-7 players unavailable for various reasons but I felt the players put in a very dominant performance and that the result flattered Inverness. That is by no means being disrespectful to Inverness but I feel our players deserve an enormous amount of credit for what I felt was a very strong and dominant performance.

Inverness are, in my opinion, a very good side who play football in the right manner but we played a system today that counteracted their threat well and its was a performance where the players attitude and desire to win was excellent. Once again we found ourselves 1-0 down at the break from Inverness’ second shot of the half from a free kick but our reaction to the game was excellent.

Within the second half we counted that there was 12 minutes of open play where Inverness never got out of their half, and for any junior side that is a very good statistic. James Duguid does what he does best with another good finish and then we kept the pressure on Inverness and got our rewards with a goal near the end of the game and then our game management was superb.

It was another good three points against good opposition and it leaves us 6 points off last season’s total with still half a season to play which is credit to the players for their efforts thus far.

As explained last week we still have a long way to go from where we want the team to be but we, as a coaching staff, are really enjoying working with these players and are very confident of our future in regards to what we can achieve.

We face a difficult game next week when we welcome Dyce to Pleasure Park but it’s a game we look forward to as, once again, we test ourselves against strong opposition.
