Exclusive: Simpson hopes Josh Peters stays and disappointed with his side’s defeat

Strathspey Thistle assistant manager Rab Simpson was extremely disappointed with his side’s 4-1 defeat to Lossiemouth and felt there wasn’t much in the game. Simpson insisted that Josh Peters is still their player until the near future after the youngster has been on trial at Hamilton Accies and being linked with Raith Rovers as well.

Simpson said: “I thought we could have got more out of this game as we had chances in the first half. The problem is when you’re sitting where we are in the league if you get chances or half chances you have to make them count. Today we defensively gave three of the four goals away. If you give three goals away from home you are never going to come back from that.

“At one stage at two one down were pushing Lossie back and had the chance to make it two all. Maybe if we had a bit of luck we could have equalized. Just bad mistakes in crucial areas and that’s what has probably killed us all season.

“We can take positives as there wasn’t a lot in the game. I thought players like Martin Groat some of them gave us a hundred percentage and had a good shift. A neutral looking at the game would think that there wasn’t a four one in it. If you get chances in front of goals at any level in football if you don’t take them you are never going to be better off. You need luck and we didn’t have it.

Josh Peters has been on trial at Hamilton Accies recently with Simpson wanting him to stay at the club but will not stop him from leaving for a bigger club. “Josh has been away on trial down in the Premier League with a club but he back with us. No as far as we are led Josh is our player till the near future I hope. The thing is if someone wants to come in for Josh a bigger club we wouldn’t stand in his way. No further things happening with that.”
