Gus rues early dis­missal

Rutherglen Reformer - - BOXING -

Ber­wick Rangers .. 1 Queen’s Park ........ 0 Queen’s Park boss Gus MacPher­son says the game was“taken out of their hands”af­ter what he be­lieved was a wrong­ful dis­missal as his side were beaten 1-0 by Ber­wick Rangers on Satur­day.

The Spi­ders were beaten af­ter Lav­ery scored a penalty on 19 min­utes. The ref­eree deemed that Scott Gib­son had han­dled the ball and sub­se­quently sent the de­fender off.

Speak­ing of the game, Gus said:“It was taken out of our hands from early on when we went down to 10 men. It made it very very dif­fi­cult for us.

“The pleas­ing as­pect was that even though we went down to 10 men we still played very well and man­aged to carve out a few chances.

“Wil­lie Muir didn’t have a save to make.”

Speak­ing of the red card, Gus said: “My view was that it wasn’t a send off. It was ball to hand and it didn’t stop a goal scor­ing op­por­tu­nity.

“But that’s what can hap­pen in football and we’ve got to take it on the chin and get on with things.”

Next up for Queen’s will be East Stir­ling­shire at Ham­p­den on Satur­day. The Spi­ders will be hop­ing to avoid three defeats on the trot.

Gus added:“We’ve got to take the pos­i­tives from the last de­feat, that we played well with 10 men, in to the next game.

“We’ve lost the last two games and East Stir­ling have had a good start to the sea­son so this game will be tough as well.”

Un­happy Gus said Scott Gib­son should not have been sent off
