No league table has been added for this season.
Not only was the result against Airdrie a lot more pleasing, but our general all-round performance was much improved. Something which has been absent too often in recent weeks.
It was good to be reminded that the ability and talent in the playing staff is still there. The first half saw us play as well as we have done for a long time, showing the style and flair which served us so well earlier in the season. After the break Airdrie shuffled things around and I was pleased how the players responded by producing the extra hard graft that was necessary.
We saw against Airdrie just what the team are capable of and now must look to reproducing that kind of form on a consistent basis in the promotion battle which is hotting up by the week.
As we know from the two recent closely contested meetings with Dumbarton, we have found them a stuffy side and only emerged narrow victors at Boghead in January after being held to a draw in their first visit here in December. Despite their league position, they'll no doubt prove equally as difficult a hurdle this afternoon.
Whilst no one is getting carried away by one result, provided we work as hard as we did against Airdrie last week, I am confident that we can continue to improve upon our home form and at the same time boost promotion prospects.
