Keith Gibson was overjoyed to see his players’ character as Broughty Athletic saw off Dundonald Bluebell 2-1.

Bluebell took an early lead and dominated much of the first period, but the Fed refused to put their heads down and they rallied back to take another Super League victory.

Gibson believes his team’s winning habit is beginning to feed into itself, but he has warned his players not to get complacent about their form or they will suffer for it.

He said :“It was pleasing for different reasons I think, it was more for the character the players showed to come back and win after losing the first goal and with Dundonald being on top for the first half an hour.

“It was great character and great effort to go on and win the game.

“The momentum we’ve picked up helped as well as the good habits we’ve been working on. We’ve been working hard in training on our shape and our set pieces and these have paid off for us.

“We were missing a lot of players and I had to name myself on the bench, so to come away with three points away from home is very pleasing.

“I think we can go to Hill of Beath confident but we need to respect our opponents. The minute we go in and think we’ve got the divine right to win games, we’ll slip up.

“We’ve drilled it into the players that it will take nothing but sheer hard work against Hill of Beath.

“They’ve started well and I watched their highlights vs Kelty, they more than matched them until their sending off. They’re a dangerous side and they beat us twice last season.”
