‘Clinical’ Locos please Alexander
Locos first team coach Iain Alexander was delighted with both performance and result.
He said, We were clinical in front of goal, we took our goals well and defended well against a decent side. The idea was to have Martin Bavidge up front on his own with Neil McLean in behind him, making runs from deep and it worked quite well, the tactic was because of us being short of numbers due to injury.
“Martin Bavidge himself must have been close to Man of the Match, he put in a real shift, held the ball up well and brought other players in while Andy Reid at the other end made great saves and we were really looking to go in at the break two ahead.”
Turning his attention to this Saturday’s William Hill Scottish Cup 2nd Round tie he added, “I played Junior football long enough to know what it’s like playing against big physical opposition, we’re still slight favourites despite Hurlford having been known to spend a bit of cash.
“We were lucky our co-boss Scott Buchan saw them first hand scoring seven goals in the previous round at Clach so the players will be well briefed what to expect.”
