It’s the fourth and final consecutive home game in March for the Spiders as Dick Campbell’s Arbroath head to Ochilview for Friday night football under the floodlights.
OWEN COYLE’S THOUGHTS
“There’s no doubt we are going in to a tough game and they are all big games now we are at the business end of the season. Arbroath have drawn their last four matches and are fighting for their lives with Hamilton and Cove Rangers to stay in this league. That in itself will present a really difficult challenge this evening.”
“They have shown in recent games that they are a good side. They picked up a hard fought point against Morton last week but the week prior to that they were far better than Partick Thistle and should have won that game. That shows you the quality they posses.”
“Dick is an experienced manager and we know he and his players will be right up for the game. With that in mind we are very respectful of them.”
“Equally though, we know that if we can get to our levels, our standards and be at our best, that we can win games likes this. That’s what we need to focus on.”
“Every game is different and no one is ever going to allow us to do what we want in a game. We need to earn that right, that’s the important part. When you are in the position we are at present, the team to be shot at, there is an extra incentive there for anyone we will come up against. We just need to make sure that we do everything to ensure that we are the best version of ourselves on the night.”
“We want to get out there get the ball moving, play at a high intensity and look to move the ball quickly from side to side. We know that when we are doing that we can and will cause teams problems. The onus is on us to get to those levels and that comes with the knowledge that if we can achieve that, we will give ourselves a very good chance of winning a tough game of football.”
“On the injury front I’m pleased that Mal Boateng has come through training this week and will be available. Marcel Oakley obviously had to come off last week as he was ill but has also managed to train fully this week which is important for us. Lee Kilday has been out for a number of weeks however did manage to do some light training this week and there is a chance he could make the bench. Jack Thomson remains a concern though and is likely to miss out.”
“I was pleased with the the boys who came in last week and showed they are ready to step in and play a part. That’s exactly what we need between now and the end of the season.”
