Frustrating time for Josh as Lichties fail to capitalise

JOSH Falkingham may have netted twice in the past two games but he believes the past two fixtures have been frustrating, writes Jennifer Newton.

The Lichties have had to settle for two draws after late goals in both games have held them to a share of the points.

Fortunately Cowdenbeath have also dropped points meaning both sides are still tied at the top of the table.

But the young midfielder believes his side should have taken advantage of these opportunities.

After the Brechin game he said: “I’m really disappointed with the result today and feel exactly how I did last week.

“We just looked so comfortable again and we should have picked up six points in these last two games.

“There was real disappointment after the Airdrie game. Now its frustration and that’s four points dropped.

“We have a lot of winners in the dressing room here from last season and I suppose you have to look on the positive side as Cowdenbeath also dropped points.

“But I personally see it as a missed opportunity as that could have been us four points clear at the top.

“Like anything though we just take every game as it comes week by week.”

With the Lichties joint top they travel to Central Park tomorrow (Friday) to face the Blue Brazil and many are now starting to tip both sides as promotion favourites.

And despite being neck and neck with tomorrow’s opponents, like his manager, Paul Sheerin, Falkingham is still reluctant to talk of promotion.

He added: “It is the same as last year and we haven’t talked about promotion we just keep going.

“We just have to keep our feet on the ground and doing the right thing.

“It has been frustrating the past two weeks as we should have taken two wins and now we have a massive game against Cowdenbeath.

“But all we can do is keep pushing and not think about anything like that until February or March time.

“Yes we have the Rangers cup game coming up but we are trying not to focus on that.

“It is a perfect draw but we will enjoy that at the time.”
