GOAL HERO JAMIE ONLY HAPPY TO FIND THE NET WHEN COVE RANGERS ARE WINNING GAMES

12/11/2018

MASS-TER STROKE: Jamie Masson scores Cove's second in the 2-0 win over Forress.

COVE Rangers midfielder Jamie Masson is delighted to have that winning feeling again.
Jamie delivered a man of the match performance -  and a wonder goal -  as Cove beat Forres Mechanics 2-0 at Balmoral Stadium to stay top of the Breedon Highland League.
Mitch Megginson's 26th strike of the campaign accounted for Cove's other goal as they also made it 14 league wins on the trot to keep the pressure on those hoping to take their title away from them this term.
Jamie is pleased they were able to do that on the back of losing 4-2 to Formartine United last midweek to end their defence of the Morrison Motors Abedeenshire Sheid.
Former Aberdeen player Jamie said: "We were determined to show that defeat was totally  uncharacteristic.
"The league has always been the priority for us and we didn't want to spoil the good start we have made in that with another poor performance.
"We did that to maintain our perfect start in the league, so we can be  pleased with ourselves.
"It's now a case of keeping our standards as high as possible and doing all we can to keep the winning run going.
"We know what we are capable of achieving as a group of players.
"It's vital that you stay together when you have had any bad results.
"You can't allow it to affect you, what's important is going out in the next match, giving 100% and making sure you don't do the things that stopped you winning the last time.
"That's what we did and we are now looking forward to our next match with confidence."
Jamie, who joined Cove from Formartine in 2017,  has actually scored back to back brilliant goals for the club.
His stunner against Forres came after he netted an equally spectacular 25 yard strike for Cove in the last minute of the Shire Shield clash against his old club.
There were no prizes for guessing which of the two goals the 24-year-old preferred.
"The one against Forres is the only one that matters to me at all because we won the game," he said.
"It was nice to score the other one but it won't stay in my mind because it counted for nothing on a disappointing night for the club.
"But the one against Forres wrapped the game up, so it was meaningful and therefore far more enjoyable.
"I was happy with the technique I showed to get the shot on target.
"If people watch me in the warm ups they will see I do try my luck with one or two efforts from distance, so it's always nice when they come off in the actual games.
"It would be great if I could get a few more, but I'm not too bothered as long as we keep on winning the games."
