Dorrat Disappointed Not To See Side Hold Onto Lead Against Champions

Huntly’s Craig Dorrat saw his side lose a two goal lead at Allan Park after Cove Rangers came from behind for earn a draw. The black and gold’s had led against the league champions until eight minutes to go when a Ryan Stott penalty ensure both sides had to settle for a point each.

The black and gold’s have not won away to Cove since February 2006 and Dorrat felt disappointed their performance did not was unable to break that hoodoo.

“Being two-nil up I thought we had a good chance to go on an win the game but Allan Park is never a good place to come and get a result as we’ve seen in the past but given the fact we’ve not won here in a while we would’ve taken a 2-2 draw before the game.”

The visitors netted from a Neale Davidson free kick and a David Booth penalty and the former Turriff United player admitted that Huntly can depend on that pair.

“Neale took his free kick really well and placed it so the keeper had no chance while David has a good record when it comes to penalty kicks and when he stepped up we didn’t think he was going to miss.”

When Cove did level late on the 24 year old admitted the pressure then went onto his side.

”Cove had a penalty themselves late on which I personally didn’t see the incident but to get a decision awarded against your side late on can be harsh and some felt the referee wanted to level things up with Cove players being annoyed at the penalty we got. From then we had to make sure we kept defending as a team and make sure we didn’t lose another goal.”

During pre-season Craig had found himself playing in a back three but a tactical change for their first competitive match saw the winger turned centre half renewing a partnership with former Aberdeen player Michael Hart in the heart of defence.

 

“It felt more solid changing to a back four today and it felt more comfortable to play in. Having Michael Hart in beside the other defenders helps keep us right as he’s a good talker and is full of experience which he can pass onto other players. I’ve only been playing in that position myself since March but I enjoy it and it feels more comfortable winning high balls and playing a more physical game which is my style of play.”
