Naisy: Our final ball cost us

22 June 2023

In a first half of few chances, the Wee Jambos went ahead thanks to Callum Sandilands penalty, but just minutes after the restart Innes Lawson restored parity.

The men in maroon had their fair share of opportunities to take all three points but it wasn’t to be and Naismith accepted the result was a fair reflection on the 90 minutes.

“A draw was probably a fair result,” he said.

“We probably didn’t do enough with our final ball to create those great chances. We had a shot off the line, and we score one that’s offside, but I would debate whether it was offside or not. It was very tight.

“Today, we just lacked that wee bit of killer instinct. Throughout the whole game they were a dangerous team who tried to counter-attack and make it end to end. I thought we dealt with that really well apart from the one time where we concede the goal.

“We’re disappointed not to get the three points, but it’s been a tough week. We’ve had some injuries and given some opportunities to the younger boys.

“We’ve probably got fewer points from the week than we feel we should and could’ve got, but with the number of players out and in terms of the experienced lads who were out, that made things difficult.

“Overall, in every game this week, we have shown some really good moments of what we’re trying to do, but on the flip side of that, we have conceded some really sloppy goals.”
