After his return to the first team and a great performance between the sticks, Gary Woods spoke to Accies media’s Martin McConnell ………

Good performance today, you glad to be back?

“Well you know, I’ve had a difficult time of late with the elbow injury and some other stuff. I’ve had it sorted now for a couple of weeks but had to wait and see how well it recovered and thankfully it was alright. I was able to train for a couple of days this week and obviously the gaffer has put me in the side and I’m thankful to him for that.”

And your thoughts on the match today?

“From our point of view I thought that we looked far more of an attacking threat from the outset, something that we’ve not been able to do in recent weeks. I think we had something like fourteen shots, a big improvement on its own. If we’d been beaten I think it would have been totally undeserved.”

As you said, there was a massive improvement up front. Players were linking up well in the last third and getting the ball into the penalty area where goals are scored from. That’s something we’ve sorely missed.

“Like I said, the gaffer has only been in at the club for a couple of days now and we’ve worked on that as we can’t work on everything in that short space of time. We could do without the midweek game against St. Johnstone from the gaffer’s point of view. But we’ll be back out on the training field tomorrow and will work hard on some different things. We’ve got three days now until the match and working hard to put his ideas in place for the match.”

Some new faces in the side today impressed didn’t they?

“I don’t think that you could look at anyone today and think that they were under par in any way. I think as a team we were good and as individuals we were good, over the course of the match a draw was I think an honest reflection of the match.”
