    Peter Grant after home defeat to Ayr United

    It was a game we made an error, young Kieran Wright knows that, he has held his hand up, that’s probably the youthfulness in him as well, as a young goalkeeper we know you are always going to have mistakes but then he had a World class save at the end, but losing the opening goal put us on the back foot and that is now in both games we have played Ayr we have lost early goals.

    We had a lot of the ball and created chances, missed them, and football is what you do in both boxes and we weren’t clinical enough, in a game maybe Ayr had three shots on goal and they got two goals and the save from Kieran right at the end of the match. Obviously very disappointed with the result but yet again I thought it took us a little bit time in the first half to get going, we adjusted a little bit, created the chances and their keeper had a couple of fantastic saves, but for me they were bad misses, we need to be more ruthless and it proved costly in the end but fair play to Ayr United they kept going and their winning goal to go 2-0 ahead was a strike which was going in the top corner, I don’t think we lose to shots which seem to go in, but in the top corner, but Ayr are capable of that, they have good players they are a good side but it would be remiss of me to say the players did anything wrong today, the disappointment in the dressing room is the fact of the distance they have came, dominating a lot of the play, had more shots on goal, but you have to be more ruthless in front of goal , or you will never win games of football.
