Las­zlo: Matty had hat-trick chance

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - SPORTS -

be­fore the game I was a lit­tle scep­ti­cal be­cause we hadn’t seen the team in a com­pet­i­tive game.

“Queen of the South have been fly­ing as well.

“Es­pe­cially af­ter con­ced­ing the first goal, I was very an­gry with how we de­fended.

“Nor­mally, we must be more ag­gres­sive. At this mo­ment, Queen of the South def­i­nitely had more of the game.

“In the sec­ond half, I thought tac­ti­cally we had to change a lit­tle bit.

“We did that and had more ball pos­ses­sion and it was a good strike from Matty to give us the lead.”

Mean­while, new sign­ing Bilel Mohsni wasn’t able to make his de­but for the club af­ter in­ter­na­tional clear­ance for his move didn’t come through on time.

He is ex­pected to be avail­able for Satur­day against In­ver­ness, though.

Queen of the South boss Gary Nay­smith, mean­while, was dis­ap­pointed with how the game went for his side.

He said: “We con­ceded a bad goal just af­ter scor­ing, we didn’t hold the lead long enough.

“From prob­a­bly be­ing the bet­ter side in the first 45 to be­ing 3-1 down at 60 min­utes was hard to take.”

DUNDEE United goal­keeper Josh Don­ald­son has been called-up to Scot Gem­mill’s Scot­land U/21 squad for their Euro 2019 qual­i­fier against An­dorra next Fri­day.
