Falkirk boss Eddie May praised his side's board for sticking by him after they finally recorded their first SPL win of the season with a 2-0 victory over Hamilton. May has found himself under pressure following his side's slow start to the campaign, but the Bairns board have kept faith with the rookie manager and May is grateful for the support.
"It was more of a gorilla off my back rather than a monkey with the first win," said May. "One thing I know is that the board of directors back me. The board have been fantastic since I have been here.
"The club has had nothing but success for the past five years and the people in charge are very loyal and very realistic. People have to realise when it's hard, that's when you have to back the team.
"What the board has built is a training ground, fantastic academy and three stands at the stadium. We are still in the Premier League and not spending fortunes."
