McCarthy Frustrated With Same Old Story

Andy McCarthy was massively disappointed after Thistle suffered defeat at the hands of Morton despite controlling the majority of the game.

Thistle went down 2-1 to the Greenock side and McCarthy was frustrated after the final whistle. Speaking to he said: “We’re all very disappointed. It’s disappointing every time you get beat, especially in that manner. It’s a recurring theme for us, we dominate a lot of the game and we get beat. It’s frustrating.

“It’s probably the story of our season, it has happened too often. It can’t continue to happen. It’s not good enough from any of us.

“It has to change right away, we can’t continue to sit at this end of the table, we have to start putting points on the board.”

After the game McCarthy struggled for answers but admits they will need to be found to get Thistle back onto winning ways.

“It’s tough for us to put our finger on what went wrong, especially straight after the match. You are hurting and that will stay here until we get to go out and try to win the game next week.

“We will look at the game this week and work hard to put it right. We felt we were going to go on and win it in the second half, we thought we were in control then we go and give away a silly goal. It’s what we’ve been doing and it’s not good enough really.”

Andy found himself back in the starting eleven and while he hoped he had done enough to keep his place, he would have preferred all three points.

“I was pleased to be back in the team and thought I played alright, I could have done better with the second, I think Christie and I had a bit of a misunderstanding and it’s cost us.

“I just hope I’ve done enough to keep the place, that is what you want to do when you come into the side, keep your place and that what I was looking to do. It doesn’t really matter through, as the win was all that really mattered and we haven’t managed to get that.”
