INSTITUTE boss, Paul Kee, was clearly concerned at the level of his side’s performance but he did acknowledge that the pre-match objective had been achieved as his troops returned to winning ways after two recent cup defeats.
And he agreed that his side had struggled on occasions, also conceding that the Donegal Celtic goals were actually of Institute’s own making.
“Obviously I’m very happy to get back to winning ways after losing two cup games, however, I would be the first to admit that the way we won this game was certainly not pretty. It was a disappointing performance, but I do recognise that the quality we have in the team is good,” maintained Kee afterwards.
“Darren McCauley is in top form at the minute and his offensive capabilities actually kept us in the game if I am to be honest, but other than that, our best peformer was probably our left back, Colm McLaughlin, which says a lot about the overall performance,” he added.
“Most of the players could sit back and have a good look at and examine their own individual performances which, I believe, was well below the level I would have expected.
“But last sesaon we probably would have lost that match so we’ve really got to look to the positives.”
