Dunfermline Athletic

Post Match Interviews

Author: Stuart Meldrum Date: Wednesday, 27th Oct 2004

Highlights from interviews given by Davie Hay, Alex McLeish, Nacho Novo and Craig Brewster after the Rangers game.

Davie Hay
Davie believes his side deserved their first half lead with a well worked goal. He acknowledges that Rangers began the second half well and that their early goal gave them a massive lift. Hay explains that the Rangers equaliser could have been prevented but that its just one of those things that happen.


Alex McLeish
McLeish believes his side really should have run out comfortable winners although he admits Brewster was giving his defence a lot of problems. He explains that the artificial pitch hindered their performance but he expected his team to show pride for themselves and relinquish the points. He praises Novo for being so confident to score the penalty and his finish.


Nacho Novo
Hard to tell what he’s saying but it’s something about being happy and scoring goals.


Brewster
Craig felt frustrated by the result having scored such a well-worked goal to take the lead in the first half. He wasn’t at all surprised at Rangers’ work rate early in the first half to gain a goal back and gives his opponents credit for growing as a team from last season. He feels that if teams come to East End with a negative attitude about the plastic surface it’s a bonus to Dunfermline but also explains that these teams have access to these kind of pitches day in day out in training. Craig is tentative to say that the Old Firm are becoming easier to defeat but admits that it is not impossible, in the same way he tells us that its could well be a dog fight to climb the table.
