Dunfermline Athletic

Edwards goal celebration still on hold

Sunday, 1st Aug 2021

“I think I need one to come off my backside and go in. I will take anything just for the ball to go across the line.”

Having reached his 97th senior match without scoring a goal Dunfermline wing back Josh Edwards thought that his hoodoo had finally ended on Saturday at Cappielow but Jack Hamilton kept out his well connected shot. Josh met a Kyle Macdonald cross just five minutes into the second half but was thwarted by the Morton keeper. Considerable consolidation came as Nikolay Todorov netted from the rebound but it did leave the 21 year old wondering if he would ever hit the net:-

“I don’t think I have ever hit a ball sweeter, I just don’t know if I am ever going to score to be perfectly honest with you. I was happy with the strike and thankfully big Toddy does what he does - stands between the posts and puts the ball in the net.”

Josh accepts that there is no chance of being nominated to take penalties just to break his duck but claims that it is not bothering him. It is something that he wants to happen but even as he approaches his appearances century, goalscoring remains “just one of these things.”

“Hopefully it will come because I have been in these sorts of areas and I have had a few chances over the last couple of weeks. I think I need one to come off my backside and go in. I will take anything just for the ball to go across the line.”

Saturday’s result was not that Dunfermline wanted and there was not much pleasure to be taken out of it. Josh felt that losing the first goal made life much harder for the visitors:-

“When you give a team like Morton an edge with a 1-0 lead into half time, it is always going to be tough. We turned it around, got the second goal and thought we were looking quite comfortable. I don’t even know how that ball has gone in but these things happen in football don’t they? We have to pick ourselves up and go again next Saturday.”

Josh felt that it was no surprise that in tight matches like the one against Morton freak goals are likely to crop up:-

“These type of games always probably have things along these lines happening. We are disappointed that it has happened to us and we will look at ways to limit that freak spin of the ball happening again.

“I feel that it was important for his side to get three points on Saturday and obviously we came off a wee bit short. It was a rubbish goal to lose at the end, rubbish goal to lose in the first half. We just need to eradicate that and we could have made it quite comfortable for ourselves on Saturday.

“We weren’t at our best but I felt we did enough to maybe take the three points. A few mistakes led to goals and we are only taking a point home.”
