We play host tonight to Montrose in the Third Round of the Skol Cup. To reach this stage we had to win a difficult tie at Cappielow last
Wednesday in extra-time. Some slack marking in the defence meant that we went in at half-time 2-1 down, but for the majority of the second-half we were camped in Morton's half. We created chance after chance, some of which went a-begging and others were well saved by their keeper. After Graham Harvey got the second goal I always felt that there was only going to be one winner and this was proved in extra-time.
Tonight's game will be equally difficult, but firstly let me welcome Montrose to Dens Park for tonight's tie. Montrose's win over Hearts was a tremendous result for them and all credit must go to their players for such a result.
We will not be treating Montrose too lightly although we realise that they will be out to add our scalp to that of Hearts. Both sides have a tremendous incentive to win tonight with the possibility of a tie against Rangers in the next round. I am looking for at good performance tonight from the players and they are aware that nothing but the best will do in order for us to get the correct result.
In the games we have played so far I feel that the team has played well and I am pleased with the team's performances. I am unable to comment on Saturday's match but hope that these comments will apply. In both our home games it has been teamwork rather than individual play which has got us the results. The more we can play like this and the more games we win then the team's confidence will be boosted. The players are more confident and are not afraid of who they meet or whether it is at home or away.
On the injury front, Bobby Glennie saw the specialist on Monday and will hopefully have been given the go ahead to restart training. Stuart Rafferty had the plaster removed from his arm today and will now be in a position to fight for a first team place. With both players hopefully back to challenge for places there will be added competition among the playing staff.
