Manager's View - Stenhousemuir
5th October 2011
JIMMY BOYLE was full of praise for his Airdrie players after Saturday's 5-2 win over Stenhousemuir.
The Diamonds picked up their first win in four games at New Broomfield to go into the international break on a high.
A double from Ryan Donnelly with further goals by Paul Lovering, John Boyle and Nathan Blockley sealed a thrilling win at the expense of the Warriors.
And gaffer Boyle could barely contain his delight as he reflected on a devastating attacking display.
He said: "We asked for the players to set a good tempo and that's what we got. We were excellent in the first half and gave them nothing.
"There were so many positives for us out there. It's a great three points for us and it was a great performance.
"We created some good chances and could have scored a few more. When you compare it to the 1-1 draw with Stirling Albion last week, we have to be pleased."
Consistency has been the biggest issue Airdrie have had to contend with during the first quarter of the campaign but Boyle admits a line the sand has now been drawn.
"I've put it to the players," he added. "We want that sort of performance against Brechin City when we come back after the break.
"We can't have the rollercoaster of being up one week and down the next."
