St Mirren v Broxburn Athletic 18/1/20

Recommended Posts


FT 3-0

Job done, move on. Definitely a bit rusty after the break. Should have still had about 6 or 7 though, the Broxburn keeper definite man of the match.

He had about 5 fantastic saves in the second half alone. Mullen’s goal at the end was a much easier save than several he made.

Broxburn did well enough but as with most part time teams their fitness went in the second half.

Delighted for big Jon Obika to get another brace. Bizarrely he gets a lot of pelters from a section of our support. Doesn’t stop him scoring goals thankfully.

Would it be over egging it to say MOM was their goalie?

Looked forward today but it was a long watch. To be fair we always struggle against teams that defend in depth. Obika is not a striker. His three misses in the first half were woeful. Junior is hit and miss but seems more effective playing wide, also thought durmus was more effective when he switched to left side. We tried to shift them backwards and forwards and their keeper made some excellent saves second half but we waste a lot of good positions with poor crosses or trying to walk ball into net. Plus side we scored three did not concede and l feel we are a threat against teams that do not sit so deep. Two difficult games now. Finally two centre backs looked excellent obviously bearing in mind quality of opposition.

At the same time Obika does score a number of goals.  We badly lack goals all over the park.  A striker capable of 10 league goals alongside Obika, plus a couple of midfielders that could score 5 we'd be top six.

Twice the ball hit off Obika in the way into the net. History registers two goals for Obika but fans at the game would credit the guys who shot in the first place.

In the first half alone Obika received the ball in the six yard box four times and failed to hit the target once.  A decent striker and we would not have had to wait until the 89th minute to settle the game.

Besides all that McGrath looks a player. Had more shorts on target in 30 mins than anyone else in the team during 90 mins..

Is that 4 or 5 times this season?

Hey, IF he continues to be lucky for the rest of the season great, but he has had a large amount of luck so far, not convinced it will last.

2 goals, yip, against a non league team, still 2 goals but he'd not scored in the last 3 games in the league.

Not with you there Top Cat. Barrhead’s post was pretty balanced and if anything erred on the positive side rather than the negative. I agree completely with it.

Suggest you read it again.
