First Team

No complaints for Osman

28th August 2014

Returning striker won't lose much sleep over missed Stenny chances as progression in cup the main aim.

Osman Sow insists he's not overly concerned at failing to hit the back of the net on Tuesday night because getting through to the next round of the Scottish League Cup was the team's priority.

The towering striker made a return to action as a first-half sub for the injured James Keatings in the 2-1 win over Stenhousemuir, following a two-match suspension.

Big Os could've hit a hat-trick on the night, but he's just glad to get game time ahead of Saturday's Championship match against Falkirk.

Speaking at the full-time whistle at Ochilview, Osman said: "It's good to be back on the pitch. I could have had three goals maybe. Some days you keep getting chances and then you score.

"Getting through was the main thing. That's why we went there so that was important.

"You just need to keep focused. Obviously it's a little bit harder but you just have to do it. I'm disappointed not to get three goals but it's like that sometimes. It was one of those nights but we won, that's the main thing.

"We've now got nine points from three league games and we're through in the League Cup. We can't complain."
