It was a harsh result – Manager Jim McInally

Peterhead manager Jim McInally felt that his side’s 1-0 defeat from Alloa at Balmoor was a ‘harsh’ result as the Blue Toon had so much possession and so many chances.

Jim said: “Losing that game was harsh. I felt that we played okay and limited Alloa to very few chances however we know why we lost it and that was because we did not take any of the chances we created.”

“We played with great enthusiasm and got balls into their box throughout the game however we never scored. Alloa had one really good opening, which came from us losing the ball in midfield, and they scored from it. That turned out to be the difference between the sides.”

“We could have had a penalty in the first half when Russell McLean was fouled and also one in the second half when Andy McDonald was pulled back at a corner, however we never got them.”

Jim added: “I thought Jack Brown did okay on his debut. I was left with little choice other than to throw him in as we were without an entire midfield through injury when you consider Hamish Ritchie, Simon Ferry, Scott Brown and Grant Savoury are all injured.”

“He will provide more of a goal threat in other games however when you consider that he is only 20 and the other midfielders were 18 and 23 I cannot be too critical of the chances they helped create. It was also good to see Rico Quitongo play the full game and have Ryan Conroy back on as a substitute.”

“The only other positives were that all the other games were draws so we have not lost too much ground.”
