Hot Shot Ross Enjoying Life

Ross Cunningham spoke to the official website after his brace on Saturday helped The Bully Wee pick up three points against Kelty Hearts:-

“I’m delighted with the result and our performance. Its obviously always nice to score and to get a double is brilliant…maybe one day I’ll get a hat-trick! It was a really hard-fought victory though. The first half was pretty even and we both had some chances but in the second half we came out strong and I think our quality showed in the end.”

The forward tops the cinch League 1 scoring charts with 5 goals so far, but was frustrated last weekend after missing a penalty against Peterhead:-

“Last Saturday wasn’t great for me. I missed that chance just before half-time for my hat-trick then the penalty topped it off. I couldn’t get that one off my mind on Saturday night; I always back myself to score from the spot but it was the first time in my career I had missed a penalty so it was a sore one. I tried to take the positives from it though, it was another two goals for myself and a point gained which is important in this league.”

A positional change over the summer has seen Cunningham net 7 in his last 6 games, after scoring the same amount in his first 58 appearances for the club:-

“I’ve been playing in a different role, more through the middle and as a striker which suits me better as I can use my attributes more effectively there than from out wide. I like having the ball at my feet so I’m really enjoying the style of football we’ve been playing too and it makes my life easier not having to jump and wrestle in the air with centre-halfs for high balls! We’re trying to play it out from the back and I think we’ve passed teams off the park so far. I’m really happy with my goal tally too and long may it continue!”

The 24-year-old also commented on the strength of the squad:-

“The gaffer and Moorey have done brilliant with the squad they’ve put together over the summer and we’ve got a lot of good options and depth throughout the team. Jordan Allan, Olly McDonald and myself all bring something different up front but no matter which option the gaffer goes for I think we all work well together and know how the play with and bring out the best in each other. Whoever isn’t starting has an opportunity to come on and make an impact as you’ve seen recently. In the past if you make a lot of subs the tempo can die down but not with the lads we’re bringing on.”
