'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dougie's Decree: Happy With A Point

Dougie Freedman has told the press he is happy with the point gained today following our six goal Reading fest.

Speaking to Crystal Palace FC after 3-3 draw today, the manager stated he viewed the game as a point gained as opposed to 2 points lost despite seeing us blow the lead twice.

'I thought we could have won the game in the first half, I thought it was going to be our day. But in the back of my mind I felt Reading had enough in their locker to open us up. I felt for our boys to compete in the way they did was a real credit to them.'

Dougie goes to say he's not disappointed with the result, not only because a point isn't bad against a quality team, but what was more pleasing to him was the way we kept our heads high and kept plugging away as the game went on.

'In a strange way I'm not frustrated because I feel that overall a point is a plus for us. We've come back from a missed penalty, back from 2-2 to try and get the winner, so it was a real credit for our lads that we hung on in there. We've unbeaten at home again and there are a lot of positives to take.'

On the issue of the missed penalty, Freedman is confident Ambrose will continue to step up to take them, in fact given it's his choice he guarantees Ambrose will take the next one and he backs him to put it away.

'I know how Darren is feeling, he's scored a fantastic goal and then missed a penalty. Darren will take the next one and score it.'

Fans will obviously be disappointed that we couldn't take all 3 points but the good news comes from those below us losing, so that point helps open the gap a touch more and could well be very important come the end of the season.

Ok Scunny have a couple of games in hand which keeps you worrying, but if they were capable of winning those hands down they wouldn't be below us anyway.
