Mur­phy:Time to start tak­ing the chances

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - THE BACK PAGE -

An­nan Ath­letic head to in-form Mon­trose to­mor­row hop­ing to keep up their im­pres­sive away form.

The Angus side have won four on the bounce in League Two but Pe­ter Mur­phy’s Gal­a­bank out­fit have picked up nine of their 14 points this sea­son on the road.

Wins at El­gin City, Ed­in­burgh City and Ber­wick Rangers have cer­tainly boosted the Black and Gold’s points tally this term. They drew 0-0 at home to the lat­ter last week­end to leave them sev­enth in the ta­ble, com­fort­ably ahead of the bot­tom three, but five points off the fi­nal play-off spot cur­rently oc­cu­pied by Sten­house­muir.

Mur­phy said: “We have been fairly good away from home this sea­son. The last time we met the game was set­tled by a set-piece. Both teams are de­fen­sively-minded so it could be a tight game again.

“We drew 0-0 last week and should have taken one of our op­por­tu­ni­ties in the first half and per­haps taken all three points. It’s time to start tak­ing those chances.”

An­nan have in­jury wor­ries over ex-Queens duo Dan Orsi and Owen Moxon.
