Ger Rossi says Peebles are feeling quietly confident ahead of this weekend’s clash with Ormiston, despite narrowly missing out on three points to Eyemouth. The Warner Park men scooped all three points against an impressive Peebles team courtesy of two late sensational strikes, one deep into injury time which ultimately saw Rossi’s side return to Peeblesshire empty-handed, but the boss is confident that the Rovers can chase off the October blues by taking maximum points against Ormiston in the first match of November this Saturday.
Speaking to www.peeblesrovers.com ahead of Saturday’s match, Rossi said:
“We talk about every week about unlucky we were against so and so, but we really aren’t far away and you have to see it to believe it. It always sounds like we’re trotting out the same old sob story, but on Saturday we were six players light and we lost our first-choice ‘keeper to injury after 10 minutes, and then we have a man sent off after 15
“From that perspective, you do wonder when we’ll get a little luck come our way. However, the positives really do outweigh the negatives and it was a great performance from us. We were 2-1 up and the boys were giving us everything as usual, but then we were put to the sword by two unbelievable goals, and you can’t do anything about that.”
“I think Ormiston is going to be another battle, they’ve got a lot of experience in their team. We know it’s not going to be easy, but our changing room is quietly confident. We’ve really competed and been in with a shot in every game we’ve played this season
“We need to get the points on the board, for all the hard work and effort we’ve put in it’s not really shown and Saturday is a great opportunity to put that right.”
