Saturday’s result at Firhill certainly wasn’t the one we had hoped for but when you don’t start a game well it makes it very difficult.
We had enough possession during the game but I feel we didn’t get enough early crosses in and on one of the few occasions that we did, it created a good chance for Michael O’Halloran which unfortunately he couldn’t take.
Ultimately, we defended three set plays very poorly and that cost us the chance of taking anything from the game. To be fair to the boys, it’s not like us to lose those sorts of goals so we have to hope that it was a blip on Saturday and we move on.
Points-wise, before Celtic and Partick Thistle we were on 38 points and I think most of us would have settled for 41 after these two game but after the success at Parkhead, there’s inevitably a bit of disappointment.
However, this is no time for negativity to creep in. We have a home game coming up against St Mirren and it will be a massive three points on Saturday so please come along and give the boys your backing, the way you have throughout the campaign.
Thank you for your support
