Gutted midfielder Derek Young says there won’t be a repeat performance of the collapse against Stirling Albion in the Angus derby this Saturday, writes Scott Binnie
Forfar were ahead thanks to strikes from Omar Kader and Gavin Swankie but a late double from sub Sandy Cunningham ensured the points were shared.
Young vowed that the Loons will have learned from the mistakes they made against the Binos.
He said: “I’m sure the boys will come out the traps next week and make sure we don’t make the same mistakes
“It’ll be good, we’re back on our park on the astroturf and we know it well.
“We’re gutted, it feels like defeat. It would have stuck us top of the league and we’d have been happy with that.
“It would have been good because we’ve had a right good start to the season.
“Without playing too well we were 2-0 up. I don’t think they were causing us too many problems, they were sending in a few long balls but we looked solid enough at the back and we had plenty of chances to bury the game.
“Most times going away from home you’d be happy to get away a point but not this time.
“We took our eyes off it a wee bit at the end, boys not covering and all the rest of it.
“But we’ve paid the price and hopefully we won’t let it happen again.
“Playing-wise we weren’t up to scratch, I’ve seen us play much better.
“We’re gutted at 2-2 which is a good sign. We’ve had a good start to the season and we know we can play better.
“Even before the gaffer said anything that’s what the boys were saying, we were gutted ourselves.”
