Interview with Forfar Athletic’s Dale Hilson

Dale Hilson is loving life back at Forfar Athletic after a goal and an assist helped the side defeat East Fife at the weekend.

The attacker returned to the club for his sixth spell in January and feels everyone has welcomed him back with open arms.

The former Dundee United, Queen of the South and St Mirren man reckons it helps that he knows what the club’s all about with his teammates helping him settle once again.

“It’s great to be back, everyone’s welcomed me back with open arms, obviously I’ve been here many times before, I know what the club’s about and the boys have been brilliant as well so I’ve really enjoyed it so far and it will be good to continue it.”

With the side defeating East Fife 2-0, the 25 year old was pleased with the side’s performances and reckons if they can keep that up they will be fine after extending the gap at the bottom to four points.

“It was good to get the win, it’s a good three points, I thought we were very good from back to front. Every game from now to the end of the season is important but if we play the way we know we can then we should be fine.”

Hilson grabbed the second goal that sealed the points after setting up Dylan Easton’s opener, however he felt his overall performance could have been better.

He said: “Obviously it’s good to get a goal and an assist, but I didn’t think my overall play was that great to be honest with you but it’s still great to get on the scoresheet and set one up if it gets us the win.”

The striker admits he doesn’t want to be relying on other sides helping the Loons’ cause, believing the side can take care of themselves in the last five games.

“We’re just going to concentrate on our own performances, first and foremost we need to take care of ourselves. If we can produce more results like that, that’s all that matters to us. We don’t want to be relying on other teams to helping us out so as long as we can keep getting results it’s good.”
