Marsh Takes One For the Team

David Marsh helped The Bully Wee to a Ladbrokes League 2 victory over Montrose on Saturday, adding to another strong midfield performance by grabbing the opening goal of the game.

The 25-year-old spoke to the media after the match:-

“We’re very happy with the result and it was good to get back to winning ways especially being at home,” he said. “The fans were behind us and it was good to hear them singing again.”

Describing his 26th minute goal, he revealed that he took a sore one in the ribs after colliding with visiting goalkeeper Ross Salmon (pictured):-

“It was a long throw in and Mark (McLaughlin) flicked it on, I’ve timed my run and just thrown myself at it. I wasn’t sure what I was going to getting out of it – a yellow card maybe – but I managed to nip in and flick the ball over the ‘keeper.

“I got caught by him and he cleaned me out to be honest! I’ll take a hit for the team though if it gets us a goal.”

After picking up a yellow card in the second half, Marsh admitted that he needed some instruction from Barry Ferguson:-

“The manager said I was losing my head a bit. We lost a goal and there was a five minute spell when I was scared that we would lose another, especially after doing so well to get the lead. I was just trying to do too much and he warned me to calm down or I would either be coming off or get sent off.

“It shows our team spirit that we were able to get over that wee patch and get another goal though.”

In concluding, Marsh admitted he was looking forward to having another home match up next, against in-form Elgin City:-

“It’s another important game. Our aim at the moment is to get back into the top four. There’s a lot of expectation on us this season so it’s been frustrating not to get some results. The pressure is on us but we should be able to deliver.”
