Match Recap

Jedi@RugbyPark

Not that much different in performance overall than SC against the OF, result apart. 1st half, sat in, and restricted them to one chance from a corner, defended fairly comfortably, get to HT, having sussed them out, and then open up, which we did really well 2nd half, ending up the better side. Had Brophy slotted his chance away reckon we would have gone on to win from there. 2nd half in particular was very much a performance from last season. 

Could well be that AD had a good influence on the set up today, but thats fine as after all he is the assistant manager. Feel for AA tonight to not have taken anything from that, least we deserved was a draw. Only way they looked like scoring (one Larry save apart) was from corners. Get that sorted out and we are still pretty strong defensively. Lots of positives overall, sterling performances from Larry, Taylor, Findlay, Power, Rory, and Kiltie in particular. SOD in the 2nd half was the SOD of the first half of last season as well. 

Night and day in every way from the CQ game, so hopefully thats the (major) 'blip', out of the way, add another creative midfielder, pacey winger and forward, and we are set. Feel 100% better than 2 weeks ago, though obviously utterly sickening to walk away with 0pts, certainly didn't deserve that.

Comments

Angelo Alessio: “We knew it would be a tough game and I think the game was slow in the first half. At the same time, I got a good reaction and a good attitude from my team but the result is a shame. I think we have improved a lot, of course but we conceded two goals from two corners and we have to improve in this aspect. We have to keep the same attitude and determination [as the rest of the game] when we are marking in the box.  I believed we could come back and I believe we can come back and transfer these thoughts [at half time] to the players. In the second half we played well and we pressed more than the first half and we created two or three opportunities to score. I asked them to press more and my team played in this way.”

Stephen Gerrard: "Kilmarnock were themselves and when they are organised, they are a tough nut to crack."
