Fox: We’ll learn from this

03 November 2023

Liam Fox admits his Wee Jambos side will learn from their 1-0 defeat to the University of Stirling.

The Students went ahead through a first half penalty and by becoming the first side to keep a clean sheet against Hearts this season, held on for all three points. 

It was only the Wee Jambos’ second league defeat of the season and speaking to the Official Hearts Website at full-time, Fox said: “I thought we were poor tonight”.

“That was the poorest we’ve been for a long time. We were flat, we made poor decisions and it was just a bad night all over.

“I don’t think there were any positives to take tonight. It’s a sore one for us, but we just need to take our medicine and get back to work tomorrow.”

The men in maroon dominated possession for large spells but weren’t able to break down a well-drilled Uni backline.

“They have a way of playing and unfortunately, we weren’t good enough to break them down. So fair play to them, they deserved to win the game.

“It’s all about how we respond now. It’s a really young group and sometimes I need to remind myself of that, but this is why we’re in this league.

“We’re going to have highs and lows, they’ve had a lot of praise for the way they’ve played and how hard they’ve worked but tonight is a wee reminder that they need to earn the right in every game so we’ll take tonight on the chin and learn from it.”
