City manager, Jim Weir, spoke to the Brechiner following Saturday’s home defeat to Alloa.

He said: “To be honest I thought Alloa were better than us in the first half. We didn’t get going at all. We looked a shadow of the side that started the game last week. We were looking to make a change early in the second half but I thought we started it better. We got a break with the goal and it was another good finish by Jacko.

“The two goals that were lost were disappointing. Two poor headers to start with, if you don’t win that header to start with you are always putting yourself under pressure.

“The third goal was an absolute joke. For me it was a clear two handed push, but at that point we were still chasing the game. Derek Carcary should have made it two all and it the momentum might have swung back in our favour.

“I am disappointed to lose the game, especially going in to the break. But overall, I certainly don’t think we deserved to win the game.”

With City’s next match, an Angus derby away for Forfar, Weir spoke about the chance to get players back to fitness. He commented: “Gerry was struggling today and I am delighted that Ian Murray came in. He helped us out today and I thought he was a standout player. Unfortunately he hasn’t gone away with a victory that we had hoped we would have given him today. Although the window is closed we can still get players in through emergency loan and hopefully we can get Trouten fully fit and Carcary fit.”
