Skip­per Sean says Spi­ders ‘gut­ted’ by late blow

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport - Queen’s Park

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.”
