PANMURE boss Ian Gilzean will be looking to consolidate his side’s position and continue their run of league wins following Saturday’s performance, writes Johnston Ralston.

He was delighted to see his players bounce back after a disappointing Scottish Cup exit the previous week. Ian said: “It was a big difference between this week and the week before when we didn’t really get going.

“We got a bit of a reaction which I knew we would because the boys themselves knew they hadn’t played as well as they could, and they were looking to rectify that on Saturday.

“We need to play like that more often. We need to find a level of consistency now and perform like that nine times out of 10 and for the 10th game we need to grind out that win.”

And despite notching up an impressive five goals, Ian believed there was still more to be had.

He went on: “We tore them apart and they couldn’t handle us in the first half. We had a really good chance early in the second half and if we had scored, the stuffing would have been knocked out of them and we could have maybe added another couple.

“The disappointing thing was losing the goal because we were so on top, but I’d rather we lost a goal when we were 5-0 up than when it was 0-0.”

Tomorrow (Saturday) Panmure travel to Keirs Park to face Hill o’ Beath Hawthorn and will look to continue their league run.

Ian said: “We’ve played really well against the big teams and we just need to do that all the time.”
