Right time to take a breath

Wishaw Press - - ANGLING -

Mother­well de­fender Richard­tait is used to pres­sure.

Hav­ing led out the Steel­men in the Scot­tish Cup semi-fi­nal last sea­son at Ham­p­den to a mas­sive win over Aberdeen, he knows how to keep a cool head on and off the field.

After Carl Mchugh was sent off on Satur­day, that ex­pe­ri­ence helped him keep his team-mates in the game to take a mas­sive point into the in­ter­na­tional break.

And the 28-year-old is cer­tain that tak­ing a hard-earned point over Liv­ingston into the break will be vi­tal when they re­turn to ac­tion against St John­stone on Oc­to­ber 20.

Tait said:“when we went down to 10 men they put the pres­sure on.

“We had to try and sit in and keep that point, that was the main thing for us.

“It gives us some­thing to build on in the next game.we now go into the break in a pos­i­tive mind­set. “The break comes at the right time for us. We’ve just got to build on it.we got a draw, it’s a point and it’s a start.”

Tait was full of praise for Ja­cobs’goal which sailed into the top cor­ner. He in­sisted the won­der­strike didn’t make the dropped points any eas­ier to take.

He added:“it was a tough game.they put a lot of pres­sure on us in the sec­ond half with­out re­ally mak­ing a dent on our goal. It’s a bit of a tough one to take the way they score.the lad’s took it re­ally well but it’s just one of them, no-one is ever go­ing to save that.”
