Josh Falkingham said that he thought the team performance against Paul Sheerin's Arbroath was crucial in coming up with consecutive 3-0 home wins. The 23 year old was pleased the win over his former club but still commiserated with them:-

"Arbroath are unfortunately bottom of the league but it was a case of getting ourselves up for it and make sure that we didn't slip up. We have done that a few times this season when we have had great results and then gone into a game where people are thinking that we would just carry it on. We have managed to throw away games so it was crucial at this point in the season to get the three points.

Faissal El Bakhtaoui and Stephen Husband congratulated Josh Falkingham

"I thought we were terrific, every single one of us."

Josh admired the opening goal from Stephen Husband since from where he was - right behind him - he could see it was destined for only one place.

"It was a great strike and with the one I got, I managed to gamble a little bit never expecting anything really but the ball has come to the back post and I have managed to stretch at it. I ended up tackling the ball, it was what I normally do anyway and it ended up going in. I was delighted, it was good to get a goal for myself."


The Yorkshire terrier now looks forward to the long trip down the A77 to Stranraer.

"We went into the four game period that the Manager has mentioned knowing that they were crucial. We had a couple of tough games, Forfar away and Ayr at home. It is Stranraer on Saturday which is now even more crucial to finish it off. We have got three wins, we are delighted with how we have done and the confidence is obviously flowing at the minute.

"So if we can cap it off with a good win at a tough place to go, and they have had a brilliant season so far. We know what we are in for, we have been down there already and hopefully we will start the game like we have been starting the games - that's been on the front foot. Hopefully we will do that when we go down there and we will be going for the three points."
