Manager's Programme Notes

We embark on the first of two home games with Clydebank as our visitors. Clydebank have made a good start to the season and they also play attractive football. A team like Clydebank coming into the Premier League means that their qualities are unknown and we remember what they did to us at Kilbowie and that means we will not be underestimating them. The true test for a promoted side comes after all 36 games are completed and you can look at your position in the League. Today and next Saturday it is vital for us to pick up points, not only because we are at home but to ensure we stay in the middle pack.

Since my last column we have lost to Celtic and St. Mirren and drawn with Hearts. We should have beaten Hearts and St. Mirren but two penalty decisions went against us. These are the breaks in football that you have to accept.

The team has been playing well but our luck has been missing in front of goal. The players know that they have to work at all aspects of their play and despite recent results I feel the team have kept on working at their game.

There has been quite a change in the first team squad this season, due to injuries and new players. coming in. We have introduced Rab Shannon, Colin Hendry and Derek McWilliams, all young lads who have done their bit for the side. Jim Duffy has settled in and Tosh McKinlay is also pushing for a first team place. Competition for places is still not as strong as I would like it but that is dependent on the right type of player becoming available.

The reserves took part in a very good game of football at Easter Road in the Reserve League Cup. Both sides served up entertaining football and at the end of the night it was nice to come away with a win.

The Premier League is such a tight League that points in the bag at this time in the season can be important later on. The support from the terracings is important and in games like today and next Saturday this is your opportunity to create the right atmosphere.
