Back to Bt Premiership action this week against Heriots, one of only two clubs to have defeated us this season. I missed the first game due to my bi annual tan top up, hopefully we can turn the tables this time around and avoid a red face.
Heriots games are always close and this one has a lot riding on it for both sides, Heriots need a win to stay in contention for a playoff place and we need the win to hopefully secure a home playoff semi final. With Hawks and Ayr playing each other this is a big big weekend.
Scotland showed how a good defence mixed with a high strike rate when in attack wins games, its not so much how long you have the ball it's how effective your overall play is and how resilient you can be. Our season, other than the Watsonians game, has shown that’s the way we play, good in defence and composed, believe me we will have to be at our best this week to be smiling on Sunday morning.
