Skipper Sean says Spiders ‘gutted’ by late blow
Queen’s Park captain Sean Burns admitted his teammates were gutted after conceding a last-minute goal to Berwick Rangers.
The Spiders left-back was speaking after Darren Lavery hit the winner in a 1-0 victory at Hampden Park.
He said: “We had a couple of chances first half but I didn’t see them coming into the game at all. We controlled it overall but it’s just a sore one right at the end.
“When you concede like that it’s horrible. We can’t accept goals like that. We need to be better defensively.
“Everybody is just gutted that we didn’t even manage to get a point at all because I don’t think Berwick deserved three points.
“The gaffer wants us to play football and not go route one but you could see the conditions today. It’s hard to take a touch and play passes because it just gets caught.
“It’s tight in our league – everybody can beat everybody – but these are the games you need to win to make sure you’re in amongst it. We just need to get the heads down and try get the result next week.”
Que e n ’ s t rav e l to Broadwood Stadium on Saturday to face Clyde, who sit a point above the Spiders in second place.
Burns added: “Next week’s game is a big one. Clyde have got a good result at Annan so we need to go into that wanting to win and cannot expect anything else.
“So far we’ve been doing all right and we need to keep the heads down and focus on winning games.
“After last year it was a bit of a sore one, losing to Stenhousemuir, but we deserve to be pushing there or thereabouts again and you don’t want to come secondbest again.
“That’s always the aim: to go further than last year.”
