No league table has been added for this season.
With less than a month of the season left, we are getting very close to decision time in the league.
Over the past few weeks we have worked very hard and battled back to the top of the league, having remained unbeaten since losing to Ayr United at Somerset Park.
When Simon Stainrod's side came Dens a fortnight ago, to we had an opportunity to consolidate our lead at the top. However, we let it slip and only took a point, though he did have chances to grab all three. Suffice to say that we are glad to see the back of Ayr United, who are the only side we have failed to beat in the league this season.
Fortunately, we didn't let that failure upset us when we took on Hamilton at Firhill last Saturday. In the first half, going forward, we looked as good as we have done all season, but on a cautionary note, we didn't more defend as well as we should and that will have to be improved upon in light of Raith Rover's visit this afternoon.
Raith Rovers are good footballing side and are presently our nearest challengers in the race for the one automatic promotion place.
There is no doubt that there will be a large crowd and the full spotlight of the media focused on today's game which is the big one in Scotland with no Premier card this afternoon.
In view of that, this would be as good a day as any to show the qualities in our side. More pertinently with just three games left, it is an afternoon when it is crucial that we land all three points.
