A credible 0-0 draw although, ultimately, we went out the competition 0-3 on aggregate. Chances were at a premium throughout the match with our best effort coming on the 90th minute when Daryl Fordyce brought the best out of the Limasson goalkeeper. Again we gave the opposition too much respect especially in the first half when we allowed them to play the ball out almost everytime from their own box, we just didn't pressurize them far enough up the pitch. If only we had applied the same sort of belief in the first half as we did in the second we may have come away with a little bit more. In essence we were too negative to start off with; at 0-3 down what did we have to lose? It's about time we started to let others worry about what we can offer then, just maybe, we might gain a little respect and make a little bit of headway in Europe.
