Jean Yvonne Kirk: We came, we saw to it and did it, We actually saw a good football match with good content. This can only help with team morale on the training ground. Well done!
homers_twin: Maximum effort from all our players, Prince starting to look match sharp & show his quality, Tommy Robson class player works well with Brough, Rudden running himself into the ground & a lovely finish. Hopefully we will build confidence & build on this.
@wullie1876: Great win, Paton, Robson and Kidd outstanding.
John Fairley: Ground out an excellent result today. Paton unlucky with his effort that cracked off the bar. At least this time the newbies realised what a derby game meant to the fan and after a shaky start got on with the task in hand. COYB
