Scott McMann post match comments

20 year old defender Scott McMann gave web reporter Martin McConnell his post match thoughts after our 3-0 defeat at Perth on Saturday (28th)

Accies defender Scott McMann was unhappy with his sides’ performance after losing three second half goals to St. Johnstone at McDiarmid Park and said, “It was really disappointing for us. I thought that in the first hour of the game we had a couple of chances to take the lead but were a bit too soft going other way, poor defensively and just not good enough today.”

Scott then added, “It is encouraging that we’re managing to get chances, and if Ali had managed to put away that chance after fifty minutes, then it’s a completely different game. Craig Watson also had a chance in the first half as well, we’re not get hammered but we’ve just got to keep the same standard throughout the full ninety minutes.”

“I think there is a good feeling amongst the club and we’re not going to get too disheartened by this, but it’s going to be a big couple of weeks for us. We’ve got some great players and had a few suspensions today, so we didn’t have a full strength side out there. But we always feel that we have a chance of scoring as we’ve got good players going forward.”

When asked of the significance of Tuesday night’s game against ICT, Scott replied, “It just makes it an even bigger game for us on Tuesday night, but we’ll just have to pick ourselves up and go again. There is 15 or 16 games left and plenty of time left to get some points, but obviously it’s very important to pick something up on Tuesday.”

“It’s very important that we stay in the top flight as the club’s budget isn’t the biggest and we don’t tend to buy players, we always try and bring the youth through. So it looks great if we keep ourselves in the division. We have great pride in what we’re doing at the club, obviously bringing the youngsters through is encouraging but we’ve also got to win games too as that’s the most important thing.”
