I hope it’s not this week­end

Fraser wor­ried about An­nan hit­ting form

The Galloway News - - DRIVE TIME EXTRA - Stephen Tem­lett

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.”
