Manager Rich Jagger admits he was relieved to beat Westella having gone into the game with key players missing.
Manager Rich Jagger was relieved to get three points at the end of the game and at keeping a clean sheet.
“I am really pleased for the lads to come away with a win today. The result was perhaps a bit harsh on Westella who I thought we were excellent today.” Jagger said. “However we ground it out, kept going to the end and kept our second clean sheet on the bounce.”
“I know they will feel aggrieved by the decision to award us a free kick at the end that led to our goal. But there was still a bit of football to play after that.”
“The ball in from O’Connell was excellent and also the header from Alex Stark was timed to perfection.”
“We move on to Scully’s away next week”
