Post Match InterviewsAuthor: Stuart Meldrum Date: Sunday, 3rd Oct 2004
Highlights from interviews given by Davie Hay, Tony Mowbray, Derek Young and Thomas Butler after the Hibs game.
Davie feels the game was an entertaining spectacle but thinks his side should have done better with the chance in the first half. However, he also admits that Hibs had their own chances and is pleased with a point. He praises his players for their performance and also explains that the visitors played well making it an interesting encounter.
Mowbray is frustrated that his team did not take their chances and believes that the Pars defensive tactics caused this. He talks about his player’s chances of playing for Scotland, especially midfielder Ian Murray. All in all Tony has no real complaints about his teams performance and praises their effort.
Derek is happy to get back into the side after a frustrating spell on the sidelines. He felt he shouldn’t have been booked but explains that it’s something that happens in football. The comeback for Derek was made sweeter as he set up the equaliser but still he wants to gain a starting line up place to show what he can do.
Thomas feels that he still finding his feet and getting back to match fitness. He explains that he is an out and out winger and knows it will take time to get an understanding with the other players. He is optimistic about staying longer than his January transfer and is looking forward to showing what he can do to gain this contract. He praises the fans for not getting on the teams backs immediately after a small slump in play and compares them favourably to the Sunderland supporters. Thomas, also, gives a brief biographical account of his career so far and his eventual contract with the Pars.
