The Spiders make the short journey down the M8 to take on Dougie Imrie’s seventh placed Morton at Cappielow this afternoon.
OWEN COYLE’S THOUGHTS
“We are looking forward to this one but know it’ll be yet another difficult game, as they all are in this league. Morton are a tough opponent and they have a manager in Dougie Imrie who has done a fantastic job. They have some real good players in their squad and they were terrific last week, probably feeling they should have won that game.”
“We will have to ensure we are at our best and we do that knowing that if we can get to that level, we can and will win games in the league, as has already been shown.”
“For us, we go into it on the back of a very good result last Friday night against Ayr United. We knew January and going into February was going to be a real challenge for us given the travelling we would be doing and the opponents we would be facing but we have come through it well. We had a lot to content with in the build up to the Ayr game with what happened in the Scottish Cup and with Simon leaving, however we reacted so well and really showed what we are about.”
“We have shown our strength as a group on so many occasions this season and we will need to do so again at Cappielow. We have the opportunity to play this game while there is no one else in the Championship playing this afternoon and it’s an opportunity for us to continue to move forward.”
“It’s been pleasing to see the continuity shown through the consistency of selection and it’s been even more pleasing to see the new additions to the squad fit right in. We have a certain way of playing and that lends itself to players who are coming in to the squad being able to do so and hopefully hit the ground running. The same goes for the players who are coming off the bench and those who have come in to start in recent weeks such as Louis Longridge and Stephen Eze.”
“The strength in depth is showing and that is something that we will continue to need moving forward. It’s the positive headaches that you want as a coach, everyone on form and players on the sidelines desperate to get in and show what they can do. We want to continue to ensure that our style of play lends itself to further progress, while continuing to be pleasing on the eye. We continue to take small steps and the next of those is there to be taken this afternoon against Morton.”
