    Peter Grant after victory over Dunfermline

    Last week was a massive blow for us, I thought we played really well for 80% of the game but lost the game, and I thought it was the same thing this week again having dominated early on we moved the ball really well and it is a great credit to this group of boys because I think the way they play, even when they are not winning games of football, they are trying to do the right things and yes they have made errors and again it could have cost us again today by giving away a penalty from us having good possession then giving it away but it again shows the character of them.

    Sometimes you have to win ugly and I think we need to give Robbie Thomson great credit today as well, you need to defend from the front and I thought he was brilliant when he came on and I thought that was a big plus for us. We have been struggling with injuries, Jon Robertson had to go into the middle of the pitch for the first time this season, Jamie MacDonald had to make some important saves and Andy Graham, typical performance and continued in the game when most players would have wanted to come off after suffering a head knock, all in all the performance, the result today is something we have richly deserved.

    It is our first win in five league games, the difference between winning games and drawing is massive we had two draws in that time which turned into wins would have made a big difference, we like to play well but sometimes you need to win ugly as well and take the three points you have to do that at times and we have not done that often enough. There was a desire not to concede to-day, Dunfermline are a big strong side with excellent delivery and a front four who work you really hard and I thought we defended that ever so well, we also moved the ball well, even although we had guys playing in different positions for the first time this season and I think they deserve great credit today.
