Manager's Programme Notes

Tonight we welcome back Aberdeen, our cup opponents of last month and this time vital League points are at stake. Since their 2-0 win over us in the replay at Pittodrie the Dons have not won in three outings and on Saturday past their interest in the cup ended at Ibrox.

Just the same they are still League leaders and Eddie Turnbull and his boys look certain to redouble their efforts to win an honour this season. At the same time we must get back among the and points ourselves, after a set-back at Dunfermline. Injuries badly upset the plans for East End Park, and last week at Firhill we were hit again with bad luck. Alan Devlin, Morris Stevenson and Joe White took knocks and Jim Henry was unwell, and long before the end we were well below strength. In addition Alan Gordon and Andy Rolland were our of action and this did little to help our cause.

However, the two games at Stark's Park and Firhill kept ihe players in action and this is quite important at this time of the season.

But if our luck was out in Glasgow, we certainly did nothing to help ourselves in the reserve game at Aberdeen on Saturday. Mistakes galore caused at
least seven of the nine goals against us and all over, a number of players will want to forget this one.

In the next month we have to pack in ten games, five at home, and if any claim for a place in an extra competition is to be made for next season we really must look for success in all the home games. And as our away programme features visits to grounds like Somerset Park, Fir Park and Love Street, we can surely look for some returns.

Back to this evening's game and it points to being another tense affair. The
Dons have dropped points in four of their last five League games and as we
have lost only two out of the last eight games, I feel we can take revenge for the cup defeat.
