Jimmy Dackâ€™s post-match comments
Club Press Officer and Photographer David Holmes managed to catch up with Jimmy immediately after the game and asked him if heâ€™d enjoyed the match. He responded by saying: â€œNo, I never enjoy the first game of the season. It was against my old club and theyâ€™re a good side. We didnâ€™t take our chances today as we should have done, but have come away with a result.â€�
Next, David pointed out that it was a game with lots of penalty decisions. Jimmy agreed and said: â€œ That theirs was a clear-cut penalty and so was ours. You donâ€™t like to see games won on penalties but decided in open play, but weâ€™ll take it all the sameâ€�.
Finally, David asked Jimmy if weâ€™d played as well as he wanted us to. â€œNoâ€� he emphatically replied, â€œ the early goal made us a bit tetchy and stopped us expressing ourselves. However, we are away from home and looked nice and solid at the back. They didnâ€™t really create a clear-cut chance and we are very happy today to have come away with a result.â€�
