Great three points. Berwick may have missed a ton of chances and certainly dominated possession throughout the match but until the red card it was a pretty even game and we had our share of the chances.
The red card wasn't in doubt for me unfortunately - really high and dangerous looking, even if it was unintentional. Gray's got a good touch on the ball and I've no doubt the conditions played a part in it but the referee didn't really have any option when he sees studs going onto someone's legs. That said, there was an awful sliding challenge on McColm in the first half that didn't even get a booking and a host of other abysmal decisions throughout.
There was some great effort and defending from all players throughout the game, though after the red card I thought the space between fullback and centre half was exposed too easily (on both sides). I'd always prefer two banks of four as well when you're as bad as us at retaining possession. There was plenty of last gasp stuff late on but even in the first half both Marsh and Frances had a number of excellent blocks. I'd agree that Marsh was terrific (though he was at fault for #DL getting the chance to hit the post) but Barclay gets MotM for me. Never mind the two or three excellent saves; his handling in really poor conditions was outstanding. McColm will get my third MotM vote and would be my POTY at the moment. Capuano is a good addition for a team like ours who aim to be hard to beat. Scullion and Watt are a far better front pairing despite arguably being poorer individually than McCluskey/Daly. Don't really know why Gray ended up on the right of the midfield trio when he was decent enough centrally last week.
Berwick are a decent team but really lack width. I don't rate Gray or Ronald but they stretch the game at least. They must hate playing us
Can't wait for next week but we're due to lose a game now Brilliantly competitive league so far.
