No cutting edge cost us - Low

GUTTED Inverurie Locos boss Andy Low admits that his team didn't do enough over the piece to book a place in the Scottish Cup's big draw.

A stunning goal seven minutes from time handed Broxburn Athletic an away tie at St Mirren in a game of few chances.

And Low bemoaned the lack of velocity required to slice open the East of Scotland outfit's back line in a disappointing defeat.

He said: “I did feel on the day we were the better side, but I don't think we created enough chances.

“They didn't create many chances either and the guy has scored a great goal that you wouldn't even consider as a chance in the game.

“It was disappointing but we wish them all the best in the next round.

“We've got quality players in the final third but I just thought as a team, our approach was a bit slow.

“We picked up the pace a little bit in the second half and it was a lot better but Broxburn defended their box really well.

“We'll work on things this week at training to speed things up in front of goal a little bit.”

Locos did have a reasonable penalty shout turned away early in the second half and Low said: “I thought it was a stonewaller, even at the time.

“I'm usually one who can accept the referee's decision but I couldn't believe he didn't see it, or the linesman next to us couldn't see it either.

“I thought the guy put his hand down to the ball to stop it from going across.

“I was appealing for it and I thought it was a penalty, yeah.

“The linesman possibly had a better view, he was only 10 or 15 yards down from me.

“You win some and you lose some.

“It wasn't the reason we never won the game, I felt we should have done more to earn the win for ourselves.”
