Lack of punch up-front worries WaittDate: Saturday, 29th Jun 2002
A lack of attacking punch worried coach Mick Waitt more than the All Whites' 1-0 loss to Dunfermline Athletic last night. Veteran striker Craig Brewster marked his debut for the Scottish premier league club with a well-taken 69th minute goal to clinch the match at Wellington's WestpacTrust Stadium.
Waitt got the tough workout he wanted in the countdown to next month's Oceania Nations Cup. But Australia will hardly be trembling when they get their hands of a tape of the game played before a disappointing crowd of 3500.
After the All Whites scored seven goals in two outings in China last week, Waitt was disappointed Dunfermline goalkeeper Scott Thomson was rarely tested.
