Not A Good Idea To Relax Too Early
Updated Tuesday, 10th April 2007
Even when three goals to the good, there is just never a good tiem to relax in a game.
Raith Rovers nearly blew it at the weekend against Alloa Athletic. Three up at half-time at Recreation Park, they let things slip so the second half had manager John McGlynn pulling out hair he did not have. Raith only just held on for the three points which moved Raith within a point of participation in the Second Division play-offs. McGlynn said: "We certainly made it difficult for ourselves. At half time, I was looking forward to a comfortable afternoon when we were 3-0 ahead but Alloa pulled it back to 3-2 and there was still a long way to go. My players showed great resilience at that stage of the game, though, and steadied themselves. I was delighted to come away with three points, especially after our defeat by Ayr in midweek."
Rovers started off well when a Marvin Andrews header opened the scoring in ten minutes before Paul McManus made it 2-0 four minutes later, firing home after Wasps keeper David McEwan had flapped at John Neil's corner. Neil set up Steven Hislop for the third but early second-half strikes from Keiran McAnespie and Robert Sloan brought the home side back into the game. But Rovers held out for the win - just.
