Craigan: We overcame a tough test
Stephen Craigan was pleased with the way his team managed to overcome Falkirk tonight as they secured a 3-2 victory at the Excelsior Stadium.
And a tough Falkirk side, who looked content to sit in and frustrate the Fir Parkers, nearly sparked a late comeback, but the ‘Well held on to take their points tally to their highest ever of 54.
Speaking to MFC TV at full time, the Northern Irishman praised his youngsters.
He said: “We did well because Falkirk sat in a little and went with a 5-4-1 initially, so they smothered our space.
“We had a lot of the ball without really hurting them and when you play against a system like that and then you concede it becomes even more frustrating.”
He added: “So I’m pleased that we were able to play against a team who were quite negative in their set-up, which is fine because there’s no right or wrong way to play, it just made it harder for us to crack and I’m pleased we did.”
