Today we face St. Mirren in our last home game of 1985 and my message remains the same, we must go out and win our home matches. St. Mirren made a good start to the season but have not been playing so well of late. It is up to us though to go out there and make the opposition worry about us not the other way round. We can recognise that St. Mirren are a good side but we also know that if we play to our potential we have no need to worry about their form.
In our last few matches there are signs that the players are playing with more confidence and it may be that we are about to embark on another good second half to the season. More players are showing signs of putting their game together and there is also the element of extra competition which has come to the fore in the last few weeks. It is hoped that with that wee bit extra confidence and competition the players will carry on the good work of late.
Last Saturday's match against Hearts must have been a good one from a spectators point of view. The football served up was good value for money and both sides showed their committment towards gaining two points. Make no mistake about it though, we wanted to win and were disappointed at dropping a point. We missed a number of chances that we would have put us in the driving seat.
I have noticed in our last three games that the team are getting back to the stage where they are creating chances and we look more likely to score. For a while there we were not making so many chances and this affected the team's confidence. The team are now showing a bit of form but are aware that they must continue to do so.
