Brogan blasts defence
John Brogan has blasted his Albion Rovers defence after the Coatbridge side fell to a 3-1 defeat against Annan on Saturday.
A glorious Lewis McLear free-kick threatened to spark a Rovers comeback when he made the score 2- 1 at Galabank.
But the final score means Rovers remain at the foot of the League Two table with four points to their name after the first round of games.
Rovers picked up their first win of the season last weekend when they cruised to a 3-0 victory against fellow strugglers Stirling Albion.
But Brogan bemoaned the “bad habits” that reared their ugly heads again in Dumfries and Galloway.
Speaking to club media after the game, he revealed: “I’m disappointed.
“I thought that, at 2-1, we had the upper hand in the game but the three goals we’ve lost are terrible.
“The first is a stupid penalty kick and then it’s poor defending for the second and third.
“We missed a good chance at 0-0 and then Jamie Watson has missed a sitter and we get punished for it. “That’s the harsh reality.” Brogan continued: “It’s just
“We’ve done well recently and have only lost two goals in our last three matches.
“But unfortunately it was back to bad habits today.
“Players weren’t doing their job and Annan put their chances away so fair play to them.”
Despite Rovers’ poor start to the season, last weekend’s win means they are within touching distance of the teams immediately above them.
Cowdenbeat h and Stirling Albion, with whom Rovers drew with and beat respectively for their only points of the season so far, sit on six points with the international break coming up.
There is an extended break before the next league game due to a Scottish Cup weekend falling straight after this week’s international break.
And Brogan added: “I think the team can turn this around, but it’s hard for them.
“They’re playing against boys that have been established for years.
“They work hard but the poor defending against Annan was disappointing.”
