Manager happy with team performance

With the confidence gained from Saturday’s win against Airdrie, Jim Weir is hopeful his men can come away from Albion Rovers with something to say for it.

Jim Weir Said: “The results are what I’m trying to express to the players now, it’s results that are important. While we want to try and put on a performance, we need to try and get some victories.

“I was pleased with the performance. We played with a number of players who showed tremendous workrate, and I thought we deserved the win.

“Although we didn’t move any further up the table with the other games being off, what we did do is move three points closer to the play-offs and further away from the danger zone. There’s a lot to be played for a lot of games. We bneed to get some sort of consistency, we’ve got a duifficult game coming up against Albion Rovers. If we could go there and pick up three points, and record back-to-back wins this season, I’d certainly be a happier man.

“Coming into the transfer window I think it’s obvious I have to make some changes, there’s a couple of faces that need to be brought in, and a couple who need to leave the door, so hopefully we’ll be able to do that and itmight bring a bit of freshness, and hopefully we’ll see some improvement for the second half of the season.

“Charlie King was suffering for the game last week that ended up being postponed, because of a hamstring injury, but he trained twice since then and declared himself fit, so we decided to go with that and stick with the continuity that we had against Arbroath. But I just felt towards the hour mark he was suffering a wee bit with his hamstring so that’s why we mad the substitution. And he’s still struggling with it at the minute wo he’s kinda touch-and-go with it for the minute for Sunday.

“I felt it was a team effort on Saturday, and in the nationals is that subs need to make an impact, and the subs in the last two games; McManus, McKenna and Carcary have made a massive impact and I’m delighted for them because it’s not easy sitting on the bench when you’ve been a first-team starter.

“Albion Rovers as we know are a very difficult side, fantastic, you know they’ve, really done their manager and their team proud. They’re sitting in play-off positions at the moment – who would’ve thought that. They’ve got a lot of confidence and they’ve got a lot of players in their team who are scoring goals. But if we go into that game with the right frame of mind, I’m hopeful we can come away from Albion Rovers with something to show for it.”
