Quick Post-Mortem in Manager John McGlashan's own words which stresses collective guilt for Saturday's humiliation.

The (
Glasgow) Herald: It is disappointing to lose five goals, but it is not just the defence who are at fault. I felt that from the strikers to the goalkeeper we all have to acknowledge some responsibility. When you concede goals like we conceded them today, you are always going to struggle to get anything from the game

The Courier: Arbroath boss John McGlashan is back to the defensive drawing board after the weekend's 5-2 defeat by Albion Rovers. He will use this week's training to try to eliminate the crucial errors which cost the Lichties so dearly at Cliftonhill. He said, "I stressed to the players before the game that Albion Rovers were a free-scoring team and it was important we defended properly as a team. Successful teams defend from the front, but we failed to do that on Saturday."

P&J: ARBROATH were left stunned as they lost out on the chance to step up their play-off challenge. Manager John McGlashan said: "It was a disappointing performance. When goals are conceded like that you are always going to struggle to get anything from the game. It was just not good enough."
