Manager's Programme Notes


There is no doubt about the contrasting styles we have encountered in our last two games.

Against Ayr we came up against some surprising tactics with Ayr getting everyone behind the ball at all times. However, it worked because they went home with a point, but from our stance it was a very frustrating game.

Both the fans and the players will have learned that in cases like this it is sometimes necessary to play the ball across the back to try and draw the opposition out. Should we come across such tactics again, then hopefully, we will be better prepared.

The very opposite pertained at east End Park last Saturday when Dunfermline attacked us and we took full advantage to get in behind their defence. WE created a lot of chances, but failed to put any away until the last minute.

I felt we deserved to win what was a very important game against one of our main promotion rivals and it was especially pleasing that it was achieved with so many players missing.

Three of the youngsters who figured in the match - Jim Hamilton, Andy Cargill and lan Anderson - are at a very early stage of their career and they have come in and done well and that is helping to give us greater depth and more importantly more competition for places when everyone is fit.

In welcoming Raith Rovers to Dens, we must extend our hearty congratulations to them on their magnificent achievement in winning the Coca-Cola Cup. It is a well deserved success for Jimmy Nicholl and his team and a great boost for Fife. It will also mean that they will bring a good support with them this afternoon.

It is obviously a stern test for us, but I hope that the boost we received by beating Dunfermline plus the return of Dusan Vrto and Morten Wieghorst plus possibly Neil Duffy will enable us to take three more important points on the promotion path
