Update from the Manager

As we head to Falkirk for our televised game tomorrow evening, we have to be wary of a backlash from them following their heavy defeat in Dingwall.  It was just one of those games, they were up against a decent Ross County side who scored the chances they created.

Apart from the Ross County result they've started the season well, over the next few weeks they face ourselves, Hibernian and Rangers so we've got to go and get the three points and see how they react to that. 
They'll be looking to show that the result in the Highland was a freak result, but the Championship, is a tough league with no easy fixtures.  It's all about consistency and we've got to make sure we are consistent and that we do things right.  
We were frustrated after last weeks game against Morton, we felt that we dominated for large parts of the game but found ourselves having to pull level when we felt we should've been ahead.  Any problems Morton caused us were created by ourselves, because we didn't deal with things properly or professionally so that was frustrating.
We sit mid table but there's not a massive gap in terms of points where we are in the league, we've been fortunate that over the last couple of seasons we've been successful and there's been a lot of positives, sometimes in football you get little spells where things don't go for you or maybe your luck's out a little bit so it's important we work as a group, including the staff and make sure we're doing everything possible we can to get the win.  
It's also important that we get the backing of the supporters as well, our supporters have been fantastic over the years and have enjoyed success, when times are tough it would be good if they play their part, as they have a major role in terms of the backing they give.  I know it can be frustrating, I understand that but it's important that the players know they've got their backing to allow them to go out and give their best. 

Iain Russell is likely to be sidelined along with Dale Hilson and Calum Tapping for the trip to Falkirk.
