POST MATCH REACTION Steven's comments post Saints win.

Today’s 2-1 win made it 3 wins from 3 matches in Group B of the Betfred Cup. Manager Steven Ferguson very happy to add another win to the record today. He said, “Winning today makes it 3 from 3, which is really pleasing. Today was definitely the toughest test we have had but equally we walk away knowing we have done all we can so far in this group stage.”

 

Coming from 1-0 down to win 2-1, coupled with a double for Billy McKay also pleased co-manager Ferguson. “The result today I think shows that we wont lie down and we are really hungry to compete. Don’t get me wrong the first 15/20 minutes we took a little time to adapt but after that I thought the boys did really well.”

 

“I think Billy has shown today exactly what he is good at. The first one he is really alert to the rebound, and the second goal is just excellent play, splitting two defenders and finishing off a great ball. I think in pre-season all strikers are looking to get goals in the bag to give them confidence and Billy will be no different.”

 

“Today’s performance showed us great signs of encouragement, as in the Premiership we will have to be that resilient. We are going to have to show a bit of steel in games and I think today the guys 100% showed they are up to that challenge. “
