First Team

Skipper insists Braves can turn things round

15th November 2020

Caledonian Braves captain Alan Reid believes he and his teammates can take positives from an improved display against Stirling University, and there's spirit in the dressing room to turn round recent results.

Reid said: "It's night and day from Gretna, which was by far the worst performance of the season. I suppose it's a positive in that way but to go 1-0 up and then concede two sloppy, sloppy goals you can't expect to win games.

"But then we got ourselves into the game in the second half, I thought we were comfortable. I thought the performance in the second half was probably up there with the best we've played but then you get sucker punched at the end, so it is frustrating."

The 3-2 defeat against Stirling University represents a better showing than the pre-season friendly, which the Braves lost 4-0, and ahead of Jeanfield Swifts in midweek Reid said the team are fully focused on turning things around.

"There's only 25 or 22 boys in there who can rectify it so we just need to go again next week.

"I know the quality that's in that dressing room, we all know the quality in that dressing room, it's just not happening for us at the minute so we need to go and rectify it. No one else is going to come in and we can't rely on someone else to do it so we've got to take a bit of responsibility and start winning games."
