I hope it’s not this weekend
Fraser worried about Annan hitting form
St Cuthbert Wanderers comanager Craig Fraser is wary of Annan Athletic.
He says it won’t be long before they start picking up wins but he is determined to make sure it isn’t this weekend at St Mary’s Park.
Annan picked up their first point of the season with a 1-1 draw against Wigtown while Saints won 4-1 away to Lochmaben in the SCFA Challenge Cup.
Fraser said: “Annan Athletic have been struggling a wee bit at times but they’re a young and energetic team who are still learning the game.
“They got a good draw against Wigtown and they might just be turning a corner so we’ll need to watch. We will prepare for this game the exact same way as we do for every game.
“We might try to change it up this weekend. Marc Whyte missed training and will likely miss the game with a hamstring injury but apart from that we’re okay.”
He also praised his side for getting back to winning ways and getting “back to basics” on Saturday.
The Kirkcudbright side’s goals came from Joe McMillan, Dale Milligan, an own goal and Sean Peat with Jordan Muirhead finding a consolation for Lochmaben.
Fraser added: “I thought it was a good performance and I thought we played really well at time in the game.
“We were a totally different side from the past few weeks. We just looked a lot more relaxed. The players have been getting a bit uptight and we just told them to relax.
“Maybe we’ve tried to bombard them with too much information so we just got back to basics at the weekend.
“We played the way we know we’re capable of playing.”
