“We know that it’s going to be a big challenge for us tomorrow,” said Head Coach Barry Rodgers. “We’re up against probably the favourites for the league. Dundee United got a new manager in, and they started strongly, so it’s one we’re looking forward to go and compete in”.
“For us, we’ve been working on a couple of specific things this week that we’ve been looking to improve on,” he added. “And the biggest thing for us in the game is making sure that we go and we compete, and make sure that we’re pushing to raise our standard even more, and that we go and try to implement our style on the game, try to control the game, and play aggressively throughout. We’re excited, and we expect it to be a good game”.
