MATCH QUOTES

"I think I'm good for at least 20 goals this season. “There are chances to be taken and I see no reason why I shouldn't take them now. “My confidence is coming back. “The first goal against Preston was among the fastest I have ever scored and after the second I thought there was a real chance of a hat-trick. “In the second half pat McMahon left me with a chance and I tried a shot that I though was going to bring goal number three, but it went just wide of the post.” Andy Lochhead.
