December begins with a win

Glad we did get a win today but it was anything but pretty. First 15 minutes was fairly average from both sides and although we had some good possession the long distance shots were easy for their goalie. Could not quite work out our formation especially as to where Willis was supposed to be playing. It did heat up when Malone laid into Conroy and although I thought it would be a yellow the Ref saw more intent than I did. Playing against 10 is no easier when they just shut up the spaces and we never looked like scoring apart from the lovely move which Brown somehow sclaffed wide. How they then scored as our defenders dallied was unsurprising-be worth looking at the "higlights" to see who was at fault. Their No 10 was quite a good player if a bit of a cheat. Furtado's equaliser was a surprise but all credit to him for battling for it and whacking it in. He also set up the winner with two great challenges on the bye line and Russell battered it home! Ferguson rescued us with a great save as we somehow got into a mix up. A relief to get the win especially given the QP result. As for Forfar they will be in the bottom four along with us for most of the season and Jamie Bain was lucky just to get a yellow for a silly bit of retaliatory hand raising. Their No 8 was also a moaner. Thought Edwards and Leighton(it was him at CB?) did well. Away to practise Gaelic for next week.
