Forfar Farmington coach Kevin Candy was in disbelief as to how the side lost to Spartans but felt the side should have been more clinical in the final third.
Louise Mason’s goal was the difference between the sides in the visitors’ only clear cut chance of the game with Farmington hitting the woodwork and having two efforts cleared off the line.
Candy reckons if Forfar had managed to open the scoring first, the end result might have been a different story.
He said: “The result was a bit galling if truth be told, particularly when you consider the spells of the game where we retained decent possession and looked to get in behind the Spartans backline.
“With a few different choices in the final third it might have been ourselves opening the scoring, but when visitors poke their noses ahead against the run of play a little bit, you then need to take the game to the opposition in their final third.
The squad now face arguably their toughest game of the season in a fortnight when they travel to take on fellow relegation battlers Aberdeen and Candy feels that there is no reason why they can’t replicate their 2-0 win at Heathryfold Park in May.
“We recorded one of our best performances of the season at Aberdeen last time out,” said Candy. “However Aberdeen are a different animal now.
“Their new manager Stefan has dropped a number of his talented youngsters into the first team pool, and their recent results suggest that move is starting to pay dividends.
“I see no reason why we can’t go up the road and hopefully receive some just reward.”
