    Default Wick back on form

    Wilson stumped to name his Man of the Match...
    "All my players were fantastic" in runaway win

    WICK Academy manager Barry Wilson has spoken in glowing terms about his team’s 6-1 return to form after their disastrous wobble against derby side Brora Rangers.
    Wilson confessed to being “almost lost for words” as his players shrugged off the 5-0 drubbing by the Sutherland side to put on a scintillating 6-1 display away to Keith, on Saturday to return to top spot in the league table.
    The Wick boss described the performance to the Press and Journal as “unbelievable” and continued: “We asked for a reaction from the players after that midweek defeat and we certainly got it.”
    Wilson said it was particularly gratifying as they had gone down to Kynoch Park with a depleted squad, minus caption Sam Mackay and Alan Farquhar. Big Lukasz Geruzel had to come off minutes with a suspected pulled stomach muscle pull. Despite all that and a sending off, Wick continued to shine.
    Commenting on the red-carding of substitute Ross Allan, Wilson said: “It was a wee bit of petulance. When Ross got fouled, he did swing the leg. Yes, it was violent conduct but he was never going to hurt anyone, but there was a reaction and the referee probably called it right.”
    It’s not often a manager is stumped when asked to pick his man of the match.
    Said Wilson: “All my lads were fantastic.”
    The emphatic win is a confidence-booster for the Scorries ahead of their return to Dudgeon Park, for their second-round cup encounter on Saturday.
