Armadale returned from a sunny seaside trip to Sorrento with a valuable point, but it could been more as an early penalty was missed for the second time in 3 weeks.
Armadale coach John O’Reilly was frustrated that his side didn’t win the game, but praised the efforts of his improving side. The boys could have taken the lead from the penalty spot inside five minutes when Kyle King was fouled in the area, but James Morgan saved his spot-kick low to his right.
“It’s hard to walk away feeling too happy when we had a penalty, it didn’t go in and then we end up drawing 0-0,” he said. “Defensively we’re delighted. We’ve been working hard during the week and it was close to perfect in terms of shape and work-rate, but disappointing we didn’t nick it..''
Armadale’s best chance in the second half fell to Quinncroft, who was denied by a brilliant follow-up save from Morgan after he spilled the initial shot from distance.
The team takes to the road again this week with a local derby at Cockburn City - 3pm kick off.
