"It was a massive win and one we've deserved because over the last few weeks we've been working really hard but it's just not gone for us," 20-year-old Grigor explained. "There's really nothing better than a last-minute winner and it shows that we'll keep going right until the end. It's always an added bonus to come away with a clean sheet, but where we are in the season it's just about the three points. We'll take winning 3-2 or 4-3 as long as we win.

"I celebrate every goal but when it comes in the fashion that it did you have to milk it. There were a few celebrations on the bus but you have to enjoy these moments. But that's in the past and our focus quickly switched to this weekend. We played Stirling a few weeks where a wee error at the end cost us, but we've shown them in the times we have played we can more than match them. We have three games after Stirling that we really need to take points from.

"Survival is obviously our immediate goal but if we can get ourselves up the table then things will start to look a bit more positive. It's been said so many times this year but it really is an incredibly tight league. You never know what can happen. I've only been here since the start of the season but these players are used to winning.

"That has been the ethos for a number of years. I know results haven't gone our way but I don't think there has been any game this season that we haven't approached without thinking about getting the three points."
