Murphy ‘It’s in our hands’

ANNAN Athletic manager Peter Murphy believes his squad have full control over their destiny following a 4-2 victory over Cove last Saturday.

But he does not think a defeat against Edinburgh City tomorrow afternoon would scupper Annan’s survival bid.

Murphy said: “I think with the gap that we had, it seemed like it was unattainable. But a couple of good results and a change in mentality and belief from our players has given us a good run.

“We’re third bottom now and Stirling have dropped down. We’ve still got them to play, so it’s a really exciting time of the season.”

He added: “If we get beat and Queens beat Stirling, we’ve still got a good goal difference if it comes down to that last game (away to Stirling).

“That would then be an unbelievable game for the neutral.

“But it’s in our hands at this moment in time. The way the players have been playing has been outstanding.

“We’ve got to make sure that we’re mentally prepared and don’t take anything too lightly.

“We haven’t achieved anything as of yet and we could make it comfortable (with a win).”

He also expressed his delight with the win against Cove, praising the performance of his men and the quality of the goals.

Murphy said: “Some of the goals we scored today were unbelievable.

“I’m delighted with the manner in which we’ve got the win. In previous games against Cove we’ve played really well, but just not got the results.”
