Fan blog: Air­drieo­ni­ans We need to take chances against top sides

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Sports -

A bright start promised an at­tack­ing per­for­mance at Stark’s Park as we sought to con­tinue our re­cent good run.

It was short-lived though, as de­fen­sive blun­ders al­lowed Raith’s Kevin Nis­bet to fire past David Hut­ton.

Raith pro­ceeded to con­trol the game in the fi­nal third and an­other mix-up saw Liam Buchanan score the sec­ond.

Raith haven’t lost at home for well over a year and the truth is we didn’t look like peg­ging them back in the first half.

Ian Mur­ray in­tro­duced Ryan Con­roy in place of Jonathan Page and that changed mat­ters.

We dom­i­nated posses­sion for al­most the en­tire sec­ond half.

When we switched to a bold 3-5-2 for­ma­tion, the few clear-cut chances that came our way weren’t taken.

Dar­ryl Duffy took aim with a ter­rific shot but it just cleared the bar.

Leighton McIn­tosh also ought to have done bet­ter dur­ing a scram­ble from a cor­ner.

The clas­sic cliche of a game of two halves rang true, but I have to won­der why we needed to wait un­til we had con­ceded two goals be­fore we re­ally get go­ing?

The league ti­tle is be­tween Ar­broath and Raith. What play-offs will it be for us, top or bot­tom?
