Mur­ray: Leighton un­der­lines strength

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Back Page -

Air­drieo­ni­ans boss Ian Mur­ray be­lieves the suc­cess of Leighton McIn­tosh shows the strength of the Di­a­monds squad.

The 25-year-old bagged his sev­enth goal of the sea­son against East Fife to close the gap on third spot in League One.

The in-form striker has been im­pres­sive in re­cent weeks and headed in his third goal in the last two games.

He has kept the likes of top scorer Joao Vic­to­ria, for­ward Dale Car­rick and vet­eran Dar­ryl Duffy out of the start­ing line-up.

Di­a­monds boss Mur­ray told the Ad­ver­tiser:“Leighton is a player who has worked re­ally hard for me since I came in.

“He has brought a real phys­i­cal pres­ence that is dif­fer­ent to the other play­ers we have, and is now get­ting the goals to match that.

“For me, his suc­cess shows the ben­e­fit of hav­ing a good squad.

“When you look at the qual­ity on the bench it’s very good for League One.”
