Sixy Football From Falkirk
Written by RockSport on January 6, 2018
Falkirk manager Paul Hartley praised his side after they thumped Dundee Utd 6-1 in the Scottish Championship on Saturday.
Hartley said: “That was an outstanding performance today from start to finish. We totally dominated the play. The players showed great character going from a goal down against the run of play – we were dominating the game.
“Overall it’s been a difficult week for this club because of the situation. There has been a lot of negative press but the Falkirk fans can go home tonight with a smile on their face and it makes it a better place now. You’re playing against a club that’s challenging for the title so hopefully it is a turning point for us. We’ve got to keep working hard, the application has got to be there every game.
“Slowly we’re getting there in terms of the quality. We still want to add a couple of additions to make us really strong for the second part of the season. The guys Robson, Nelson, Longridge and Tumilty were different class. I’ve got to say everybody today, but Sibbald was outstanding. He’s quality, he’s such a good player, a really talented boy. You don’t realise how good he is until you work with a player.”
It had been a difficult week for Falkirk FC following defeat at bitter rivals Dunfermline and criticism in the media after some Falkirk fans were castigated for throwing fake eyeballs onto the pitch taunting the Pars Dean Shiels who lost an eye in a childhood accident.
St Mirren are currently top of the Championship [ 45 points ] with Dundee Utd in second place on 39.
