No league table has been added for this season.
After the disappointing result against Aberdeen when we played some good football but were punished for missing chances, it was great to bounce back with the result against Dundee United last week.
Obviously I was delighted with the performance and commitment from the players and was especially delighted for the supporters who have had to wait a long time for a result which was so resounding. An early goal settled us and with the supporters behind us we then proceeded to take control of the game. I am only sorry that there was not more supporters there to see our victory. Hopefully this result will be the start of similar type results against the bigger clubs.
Today we encounter another member of the McLean family. Last week it was Jim, this week it is his wee brother Tam who was once the best crosser of a ball in Scotland but sadly he has lost that ability now. Motherwell had a tremendous result against Rangers at Ibrox last week and will be after a similar result today. From accounts of the game they frustrated Rangers and hit on the break with very successful conclusions. They are likely to play it tight again this week and we will have to be on our guard against their counter-attacks.
Our record so far this season against sides below us in the League has been good and today is another opportunity for us to extend that record.
Things may not go our way at first but the players know that as long as they play their normal game things will come right.
After the terrific atmosphere of last Saturday there will be a smaller crowd pre sent and I would ask you to give the players the same backing as you did last week at Tannadice. With the results that ourselves and Motherwell got last week today's match has the makings of a good game.
