Thought we were comfortable in the 2nd half however we should have made a positive change earlier to try & get a 2nd goal.
In the end we were pretty much gifted the game by their centre half.
Hopefully we can push on away from home after that but it wasn't as convincing as the scoreline suggests. Just a word of caution that we won't always get soo lucky with the opposition making a mess of the final 10mins.
Probably would give Morelos man of the match as without the quality of his first assist we may have toiled for longer.
Also good to see Rossister get 80mins in and doing ok albeit his attempted tackle for the goal was poor. Wasn't impressed with Coulibally though & he really needs to find his pre injury form. Same with Katic who really toiled badly.
A know mate was a mental end to the game there. Shows we are well and truly a different team. Last couple of seasons we would have drawn or even went on to lose that there. This team are different animals, still learning but they are of good stock.
Walker said it hit the top of his arm as if to say that's not a penalty. It doesn't matter if he stops the ball with his arm or catches the ball and bounces it like a basketball, it's a handball either way.
Turgid stuff for the most part because they barely left their own half for the first 45. Second half things opened up a bit and they made it a scrappy affair. We weren't great: every through ball to Alfie or over the top to Tav just seemed a wee bit too heavy etc. Katic had an absolute mare. But we won 4-1. There are going to be games like that.
I think too much is being made of "away form". Before today we'd played a grand total of 4 away games in the league (we'll ignore the 3-1 scudding of Killie away in the cup for convenience.) Given the number of games we've played 4 games is way to small a sample to suggest some kind trend.
Happy with the 3 points not happy with the level of performance.Mid to front today was awful and against better opposition Katie would have been exposed.Surprised Stevie G didn’t sub him at HT.Anyway onwards and upwards bring on the Sheep.
By no means pretty, but we've dug out a 4-1 victory. Sometimes you just need to take that and move on. In tomorrow morning for a light session, analyse todays game in detail in the afternoon, then put it to bed.
That's our first away win since February on a terrible pitch against a team of hammer throwers treating it as their cup final. If you're still unhappy with a 4-1 win after the final whistle this might not be the sport for you.
Sorry but we won that because their centre back had some sort of spastic meltdown and gave us 2 penalties.
If you think that sort of performance is getting us anything at Easter Road or Tynecastle you're deluded. We'll get fucking skelped and we really really need to buck up our ideas away from home. The performance was every bit as bad as Livingston.
A flattering scoreline for us tbh but really happy with the 3pts as it looked for a while that we’d drop points. I am just hoping we can now start playing better in these domestic away games with a bit more energy and creativity.
Someone said earlier it was a monkey off the teams back let us hope so.
