NOTE: John Coughlin’s full post-match interview with Eric Tait can be viewed at the bottom of this page.
Berwick Rangers boss John Coughlin was quick to admit his side were lucky to leave Meadowbank Stadium with three points after his side came from a goal down to beat Edinburgh City by two goals to one on Saturday.
“It looked like our only route back into the game was a mistake by them, and their boy has duly obliged. To be fair, it was a performance that probably didn’t merit the way.
“I’m delighted to take it because any win in this league away from home is going to be vital. We played with a lot of attacking intent but it was never an issue. We couldn’t get on the ball and couldn’t pass it, we looked very lethargic during the course of the game.
“We played the get out of jail card and got away with it. The first hour at Forfar was similar as today. It was nervous all the way through today, very tentative. It was the kind of game I’d hoped we could have came to and quality. The pitch and conditions were great – there was no reason why we shouldn’t have played well, so we’ll go away in training this week, including this Saturday, and try work out why that didn’t happen.”
Despite the negatives in defeat, Coughlin reserved praise for Jordyn Sheerin, Kevin Walker and Brian Martin. To hear more of Coughlin’s thoughts, watch the full interview below.
