Kenny praise after Murdoch mistake

Dunfermline manager Stephen Kenny praised his debutant goalkeeper Sean Murdoch for his reaction to the "freak goal" that may have scuppered their UEFA Cup hopes against BK Hacken.

The Pars had only just taken the lead through a first-minute Jim Hamilton header at East End Park when 21-year-old Murdoch replaced the injured Roddy McKenzie - and he coped well before allowing a harmless long ball to bounce over his grasp and watched in horror as Jonas Henriksson nodded into an empty net in the 57th minute.

Kenny, whose side held on for a 1-1 draw, said: "He responded in the right way because after the goal went in normally you are worried about a keeper, will his nerves get the better of him? But he made two very good saves. I was pleased he showed a degree of mental strength."
