Danny Devine was happy with the hard fought draw and clean sheet against Aberdeen at the Energy Check stadium at Firhill. It was the first clean sheet since December and the defender was delighted with the way the team played.
Speaking after the match he told ptfc.co.uk: “I don’t think there was much between the teams. Aberdeen are a good side but I thought we matched them
“It was a real scrappy game, the conditions didn’t help anyone and made the pitch quite slippy, you had to be careful but I thought we dealt with it well. It was a real solid performance from the lads and a bonus to keep the clean sheet”
After late disappointment in the last two games the defence bounced back with a solid showing, limiting Aberdeen to very little opportunities, and Devine was delighted to have kept them out.
“We are delighted with the clean sheet, it’s been a while since the last one and long overdue. It’s something to build on and take into the games coming up.
“We’ve got a run of tough games starting today against a tough Aberdeen side and we’ve matched them and put in a performance. That will give us confidence going into that run of games that we’ve got coming up.”
Danny is hoping to build on the point and performance and propel The Jags out of the play-off spot. Despite results elsewhere not quite going our way he admits we have to remain focused on ourselves.
“We know every game between now and the end of the season is going to be tough but we have to continue to put everything into it and build on how we played today.
“ We can’t control what everyone else does, we can’t affect their results, we have to concentrate on ourselves and doing everything we can to get ourselves out the position we are in just now.”
