GOWFERS’ manager Ian Gilzean believes his players are finding their form again, even if that isn’t reflected in the scoreline.

On Saturday, Panmure came off second best against league contenders Linlithgow Rose, but the boss remains upbeat.

He said: “We played well again. We were looking to continue our form against Lochee United last week. We played as well as that again, but unfortunately we didn’t get the result.”

“It was a pretty even game, we had a couple of chances, and there were some great saves.”

A virtually unopposed Rose striker made the third goal, but Ian is unfazed, believing that when the score is at 2-1, it’s better to try for an equaliser and risk a 3-1 result.

He said: “We tried to push forward to get the equaliser, we pushed more boys up and it just didn’t come off for us.

“They defended well and got more players forward than we had up back. There was not a lot we could do. Sometimes it comes off, sometimes it doesn’t.”

Tomorrow (Saturday) Panmure face the formidable Bo’ness United. Ian said: “We’ll get a good game from them. If we play like we did against Lochee United and like last week we should be alright.

“Hopefully, if we play as well as we did, and at that level then we’ll have a great chance of getting a result.

“It should be a good game, that’s why we’re in the league, to play the best teams and see how we measure up.

“We’ll soon turn the corner. If we were playing badly and getting beat that would be another story, but we’re playing well and getting beat. That’s just one of those things.”
