After the win over Forfar manager Allan Johnston spoke to the media and really only one thing was on the forefront of his thoughts - the injury to Ryan Williamson's right leg just three minutes from full time. He said:-

"We are all gutted, we will just keep our fingers crossed for Ryan but it looked a really poor challenge from the boy on Ryan. He has picked up a bad one by the look of it. It is hard to tell just now but it doesn't look good at the present moment.

"It is hard to see on the video but it looks as though the two of them went for the ball and it it looks like. A poor challenge from what I can see but at the end of the day hopefully it is not as bad as we first think.

"At 3-0 up it is so disappointing but one of those (challenges) that you don't need to make. It happens in games and it is all about how Ryan comes back. Hopefully he comes back bigger and stronger and is not out as long as we first think."

After an average of 5.5 goals over the first four matches the average dropped as a result of just finding the net three times!

"We could probably have scored a couple more. It was a hard game, I think Forfar made it really really difficult for us. They get the ball forward quickly especially on that pitch - it is really bouncy and hard to deal with but I thought we created a lot more opportunities than them and were unlucky not to score more goals."

The opener came in 32 minutes when Forfar were reduced to ten men in conceding a penalty that Michael Moffat converted:-

"Definitely a sending off. We have good pace about our team and even before that we looked like we were going to score. Just the final pass that let us down but the goals came eventually.

"The second goal was a great finish from a great ball in; Michael Paton has put some great ball in already this season. That is what I like to be capable of. It was good to get another goal from Faissal.

"Michael Moffat deserved the two goals, his work rate is incredible and one of these weeks he will probably score four or five because he is always in the right position. He has just been a wee bit unfortunate at times."
