Lindsay: "It was a perfect Saturday."

29 April 2019

The Reds have automatic promotion back in their own hands with one game to play, thanks in part to Liam Lindsay's match-winner on Saturday, and he was naturally delighted when he spoke to the press following the game.

Heading in a Cam McGeehan corner kick early in the second half saw his side to a priceless three points on Saturday against Blackpool, and Reds defender Liam Lindsay conceded afterwards that once the players saw the results elsewhere, their already happy mood improved even further!

“The other results made it a perfect Saturday," Lindsay told the press, post-match.

"I couldn’t believe them when I saw them. The job is not done yet but we’ve won four on the spin for the first time this season, so that's another positive for us, and we’re going into the Bristol Rovers game with lots of confidence.”

The Scottish defender admitted the squad were now planning to watch the Portsmouth match in midweek, as he explained: “It’s been talked about, that maybe we will watch it together as a group. I am sure someone like Davo will sort it out for us. Hopefully it will get done that night but, if not, then we will look to finish it off ourselves in Bristol.”

Lindsay’s winner was his first league goal of the season and it was a rare Reds goal from a corner kick. 

In a game where Barnsley racked up 13 corners, the former Partick Thistle man admitted he was relieved to make one of them count.

He told us: “We had loads of corners and Cam has whipped some good ones in so if I didn’t score, I would have been getting a wee kick or a punch in the dressing room after the game. But no, it was great to score such a big goal.

“I felt we were brilliant. We've come back from a goal down before so we knew we could do it.

"The goal they scored gave us a kick up the backside I feel. Cauley equalised at the perfect time just before half time. Then we got the winner and saw it out defensively.

"So like I said, it was a perfect Saturday."
