VIDEO: Elgin must show Annan defeat was a 'blip'

ELGIN City’s management team will challenge their players to prove that Saturday’s home defeat to Annan was a one-off.Borough Briggs - home of Elgin City

City’s first home league defeat in ten months – highlights from Elgin City TV above – was a big disappointment to boss Jim Weir and his number 2 Gavin Price.

Price wants the team to respond to the setback in positive fashion by producing a much-improved display at Berwick Rangers on Saturday.

“We will look to try and shake off the disappointment of today very quickly, at training.” he said. “Hopefully by Saturday the boys will be eager to prove that today was a blip, that they will be mentally ready, focused and start the game better.

“If they do that they will win more games than they lose.”

The assistant boss was critical of the way Elgin played in the first half.

He admitted goalkeeper Marc Waters was rash in conceding the penalty for Annan’s goal but said defenders around him didn’t kelp with their hesitancy.

Waters’ foul allowed Aidan Smith to slot home the winning goal on 24 minutes.

Elgin did miss a number of good chances in the second half, as their four-game winning run shuddered to a halt.
