Manager's Programme Notes


At the time of writing this column, the Hearts game had not been played.

However, the results of the two previous games were excellent coming after a disappointing result against Aberdeen.

Our performance against Aberdeen was good although not good enough to win the game due to the fact we lost bad goals again. To give any team two goals of a start makes it an uphill task and Aberdeen's strength is defence which then makes the job of pulling back the deficit harder.

However, against Falkirk and Morton the players made amends and ran out comfortable winners scoring a record 13 goals for two consecutive Premier League game.

Cynics have already said that it was easy to do because both teams are in the relegation area, but how many other teams have gone to Brockville and Greenock and won by such convincing results. The players take and obviously deserve all the credit. for the work they have done so far this season but they are also aware that there is a long way to go to the end of the season and anything can happen in football. But you can be assured that the players will continue their hard work to ensure a return to European football next season.

To all our supporters and guests today we wish you all a 'Happy New Year'.
