No league table has been added for this season.
Our last three results have been very disappointing and certain aspects of our play have fallen below an acceptable standard.
In the match against Motherwell we made a number of chances which were not converted and it is in matches like. this that we must strive to gain maximum benefit from the chances we make.
The result against Rangers at Ibrox was disappointing in that we lost to a deflected goal with only a few minutes to go. In that match we allowed Rangers midfield players too much room but after half-time we worked harder to shut them down and as a result played better than in the first forty-five minutes.
Last Saturday at Tynecastle we made defensive errors against Hearts for which we were severely punished. We have been working hard in training to correct these faults and are looking to put them right today.
We could talk about the injuries that have without doubt affected the team but these are part and parcel of football and we have players here who know what job is required of them when they play in the first team. The players know that they have not played well recently but they are also aware of what standards they can reach and are keen to rectify what has gone before.
With two home games in a row we have an opportunity to get back on the points trail before we travel to Parkhead to face Celtic next Saturday.
Before then we have Clydebank as our visitors and although they have had an inconsistent season so far they are a team who play good football and are difficult to beat. Clydebank will play it tight at the back and try to frustrate us in the hope that they can get a goal which would put us under pressure. We went to Kilbowie earlier in the season and picked up both points and this is what we must aim for today.
