Boss Gus praises ri­val­stop­per

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports - Will Henshaw

Queen’s Park gaffer Gus MacPher­son said An­nan’s best player on Satur­day was their goal­keeper - af­ter lim­it­ing his side to a 1-0 win.

The Spi­ders got their first win of the campaign at Gal­a­bank on Satur­day thanks to a goal from Fraser on 41 min­utes.

Queen’s were largely the bet­ter side dur­ing the game, and al­though Gus is pleased to get the three points, he in­sisted An­nan had Alex Mitchell to thank for keep­ing the score to 1-0.

Speak­ing to the Re­former, Gus said: “You’re always pleased to get the three points. You’re always look­ing and try­ing to ac­cess the group of new play­ers and how they will gel, how­ever, with the win over An­nan I’ve seen progress.

“There was also pos­i­tives to take from the games against Clyde and Ber­wick.

“I think you go away from home you just want to get the right re­sult. An­nan are a good side and it was a tough game, we were play­ing against the wind for a lot of it.

“Say­ing that we had a lot of pres­sure and I thought An­nan’s best player was their goal­keeper. He made some good saves and kept the score down, which always gave An­nan hope since we were only 1-0 up. Thank­fully we saw the game out.”

The Spi­ders will hope to notch up their sec­ond win of the campaign as they take on Ar­broath at Ex­cel­sior Sta­dium this com­ing Satur­day (Au­gust 23).

Fresh from a 1- 0 over Al­bion Rovers, Gus knows the Red Lichties will pro­vide a tough chal­lenge but is hop­ing his side can carry their re­cent good form in to the game. Gus added: “It’s a good game for us. It’ll be dif­fi­cult, Ar­broath have came down from the league above and won their first two games, they will have as­pi­ra­tions of go­ing straight back up again.

Hope­fully we can keep mak­ing progress and get the right re­sult.”
