Following The Bully Wee’s 4-2 win over Elgin City on Saturday, goalscorer David Gormley spoke to the press.
“Elgin will be there or thereabouts at the top of the league so it was a good performance,” he said. “After last week we didn’t want to let the standards drop, so it was pleasing. There were a couple of mistakes but we didn’t feel sorry for ourselves and got over them.
“We also regrouped after the red card and the fourth goal gave us a cushion.”
Gormley revealed that he was relieved to have got his second goal of the season, after an earlier effort was ruled out by the assistant referee:-
“I don’t think I was offside and I said that to the linesman, but thankfully I got the goal later on. I should have scored another one to make it five, but I’ll take the one goal after a bit of a drought for myself recently.
“The gaffer has told me not to worry about the goals and that he’s happy with what I’m doing for the team. It’s a good boost to my confidence to hear him say that.”
As well as getting on the scoresheet, the forward contributed to the victory with a superb assist and a fine overall display:-
“I was happy enough with my own performance and it was nice to get some praise from the boys after the game.
“I feel as fit as I ever have. I put that down to the manager, the training is a high standard and at a high tempo. He’s also worked with me and some of the other boys individually for a bit of extra sharpness.”
The 27-year-old’s hard work wasn’t done for the day, as he prepared to start a night shift in his job with the railway, but he finished by looking ahead:-
“We’ve done well in the last three weeks. We’ve set ourselves a standard we need to live up to now and we need to try to continue it at Berwick next week.
“Two wins makes a big difference in this league. If Annan drop any points now we’ll have a chance to be on their tail and that’s the aim. It’s an old cliché but we just need to keep winning.”
