No league table has been added for this season.
I am relatively happy with recent results and feel that the team has been going quite well. The team's performance in the first-half against Clydebank last Saturday was the best we have played all season in terms of quality of football and chances made. The fact that we only won 2-0 was down to some good goal- keeping and also a number of good chances being mis- sed. Our second-half performance was not as good as the previous forty-five minutes but at no stage did I consider that we would lose.
Today's visitors Celtic need no introduction as they are going well at the moment which ensures that we will see a lively match.
To date we have done well defensively and the team will have to be on their toes this afternoon as McClair and Johnston are possibly the best two forwards in Scotland at the moment. We are looking forward to a good afternoon's entertainment with both sides going all out for a win. We will have to be at our very best this afternoon if we are to pick up both points and will have to sustain our ef- fort for the full ninety minutes.
In our last two home games against Rangers and Hearts we have played in front of large crowds and it has been noticeable the large number of fans who have got behind the team. The players have been aware of your encourage ment and with another big crowd today I would ask for the same encouragement.
I am delighted that another two of the youngsters at Dens have been picked for an International pool. Duncan Campbell and Michael Kerr travel to Budapest with the Scotland Under-16 Youth Team. These two latest call-ups give everyone at the Club a boost and is especially encouraging for the younger players.
