Coupar dis­cover win­ning for­mula

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - THE BACK PAGE -

Coupar An­gus man­ager Lo­gan McConachie in­sists he was al­ways con­fi­dent his side would re­turn to win­ning ways at home.

The Fox­hall Park squad were with­out a win at home all sea­son as Arbroath Vics made the jour­ney to east Perthshire at the week­end.

But McConachie’s men put that record to bed on Satur­day af­ter­noon with a con­vinc­ing 4-0 vic­tory cour­tesy of goals from Chris Li­versedge, Tom Casey, Alex Gibb and Ross Ni­chol­son.

“We’ve said for a long time that when we all fi­nally click to­gether we’ll com­pletely con­trol some games, ”the Coupar boss said.

“That was the case on Satur­day where Arbroath were pinned back and couldn’t pre­vent us from get­ting in be­hind them. It’s great for the lads as they were all des­per­ate to get back on track.

“The home form never fazed me. Those de­feats came at the start of the year when we weren’t prop­erly ready to com­pete. The re­cent de­feats have been to teams vy­ing for pro­mo­tion. We knew our luck would turn around.

“Our de­fen­sive shape was out­stand­ing on Satur­day the back four were solid and gave lit­tle op­por­tu­nity for Arbroath to take any chances.”

Coupar play East Craigie at home on Satur­day this week in a 2.30pm kick-off.
