Goal is talk of Ochilview

it WAS the goal that clinched victory and helped extend Stenhousemuir’s unbeaten run to six matches.

From the moment that Andy Rodgers’ bicycle kick hit the net, Warriors players, staff and fans alike have been talking about little else.

“It’s probably the best goal that I’ve ever seen live,” assistant boss Kevin McGoldrick told Heraldsport.

“I’m delighted for him. He’s a local lad, and he had taken a wee bit of stick for a few of misses earlier in the game and the week previously against Albion Rovers.

“But he’s capable of those moments of quality. Apparently he scored a very similar goal for Ayr United last season that was voted goal of the month.

“Saying that, he tried it again on Tuesday night in training and it didn’t come off, so maybe it was a fluke!”

Rodgers’ goal two minutes from time came just moments after East Fife’s Ryan Wallace missed a seemingly open goal.

It was a lucky break - but one that McGoldrick felt the Warriors deserved.
