Manager's Programme Notes


As we head into our last scheduled home game of the season, it is time to reflect on what has been a very difficult campaign. It would be stating the obvious to say that this season the First Division has been very competitive and we have been up there challenging almost all the way through, Unfortunately, we have stuttered in the final furlong and particularly in our last two fixtures.

Against Raith, we simply didn't play, but that was not the case when we met St Mirren at Love Street last Saturday, particularly in the second half. There was no lack of commitment, but we didn't get the breaks and ended up coming away empty handed, dealing a severe blow to our promotion aspirations.

This afternoon the visit of St Johnstone represents the last throw of the dice as far as hopes of getting promotion are concerned. Put simply, we must beat saints if we are to hold out any hopes of getting a second bite at the cherry via the play-offs. Injury and suspensions have caused us problems, but now we must all rally together in one last charge and hope that events elsewhere conspire in our favour.

I obviously understand our supporters disappointment, but we really need your support this afternoon.

With the strong Dundee United links amongst the Perth playing staff, not to mention the manager, they are unlikely to do us any favours, but I am optimistic that we can get the result we need to still leave the promotion door open.

If this proves to be the last game at Dens Park this season, and I hope it is not because it would mean we had reached the play offs, I'd like to thank all our supporters for sticking by us this season and look forward to your support next term,

A lot of changes have had to be made this season with the introduction of several young players and that can only stand us in good stead in the future.
