Looking at some of the other results today, I will take that, although it was a poor game, particularly the second half. If we'd taken our chances, it could have been a big win, but it was not that sort of day. Cove would acquit themselves in league 2 or even league 1.
Ridgers coped with what was thrown at him, with a few comfortable saves.
I thought Rooney had a decent game at right back, pushing forward a lot. Tremarco pressed a lot down the left and was the pick of the defence. Mckay and Donaldson did fine, with a few positive moves forward from big Coll.
The midfield struggled to control things. Polworth set the second up nicely and was trying to pick out passes, but had the free kick of the season: straight over the South stand, fortunately those around me saw the funny side. Chalmers had a decent first half but, like many, was quiet after the break. Trafford was quieter than I would have liked. He has potential, we need him to deliver. Will be interesting to see Beith as a possible alternative: anyone know what his injury problem is and when he will be fit?
Doran was busy, and trying to inspire, probably our best player on the day.
Up front, Austin got two, but should have had four by half time. Hopefully when fully sharp, he will find his cutting edge. A quiet game from Oakley, and rightly hooked after a booking for a mistimed challenge.
White had a few moves and had an effort that hit the bar, but hard to assess him or Walsh. Elbouzedi was busy with a couple of attempts on goal, but again hard to judge him on the time on the park.
Too early to draw conclusions, but not a convincing display.
Positives: Ridgers and the defence.
Jury out: midfield and up front.
Surprised to see Cowdenbeath win today. That should ensure we avoid complacency on Tuesday, as three 90 minute wins should see us qualify for the next round.
