Manager's Programme Notes


Our first week of the New Year was certainly an eventful one, beginning with our home win against Dunfermline.

This was followed by the defeat against Rangers in a game which we were unfortunate to lose having the bulk of the pressure in the second half.

Our third game in the week, last Saturday at Motherwell saw an indifferent performance in the first half.

But after going three goals down four minutes into the second-half, the players produced a very good attacking display and did very well to come away with a point.

In fact, had we taken our chances in that second-half, we could have taken both points.

In all of these games one thing in our performance was evident, the players fitness level is very good.

We must, however, use that to our advantage in both halves of the game not just the second period.

Today's game is one in which our fitness will be important because derby games have a habit of being played at a fast pace with plenty of excitement for both sets of supporters.

The games with our neighbours this season have all been good competitive games and I don't see today's game being any different.
