We have the quality, says Ian

PANMURE manager Ian Gilzean will be looking to cut out the errors this weekend and capitalise on his side’s strengths.writes Johnston Ralson.

After losing 2-0 to table toppers Linlithgow Rose, the gaffer highlighted the main issues. He said: “I think at the end of the day they deserved to beat us. There were not a lot of chances in the first half but they took theirs and we couldn’t take ours.

“As long as it was one nil we were still in the game and we were looking quite dangerous at times.

“I felt we should have defended the corner which led to the second goal a bit better. We spoke to the players about that after the game and on Monday at training about being in the right positions during set-pieces.

“It was just unfortunate we couldn’t get an equaliser.

He went on: “We gave a good account of ourselves. Linlithgow have had a good run in the league, I think they’ve only dropped a couple of points this season, but we just came up a little bit short.”

Tomorrow (Saturday), the Gowfers visit Lochee Harp in the GA Engineering Cup, and despite thrashing the Dundee side 5-1 in a friendly earlier this season, Ian is wary of writing them off.

He stated: “We’re away from home and Harp is a tough place to go to. They had a good result at the weekend so they’ll have nothing to lose.

“If we put the same amount of effort into this Saturday as we have in the last two games we should have enough quality and experience to carry it.

“We’ll just have to go there and put in a professional performance.”
