Coupar go into derby af­ter­loss

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - THE BACK PAGE -

It was a frus­trat­ing af­ter­noon for Coupar An­gus on Satur­day, who were de­feated 1-0 away at Lo­chore Wel­fare.

The Fox­hall Park men, who were look­ing to make it two wins on the bounce, were un­done by a 30-yard strike from David Byrne.

Coupar boss Lo­gan McConachie said: “There was very lit­tle be­tween the two teams on Satur­day.

“The pitch was in pretty poor con­di­tion with the weather, so it was more of a bat­tle than a match.

“The game was de­cided by a long-range ef­fort, which is frus­trat­ing be­cause we lim­ited their chances and de­fended well.”

This Satur­day, Blair­gowrie travel to Fox­hall Park to play Coupar An­gus in a North League derby match. It’s a 2.30pm kick­off.

Lo­gan added: “I think there is a great chance for us to take points from Blair­gowrie on Satur­day.

“This league is tight and it’s com­pet­i­tive, so hope­fully we can get a pos­i­tive re­sult for the first derby of the sea­son.”
