ELGIN CITY vs STENHOUSEMUIR
Stenhousemuir make the long trip north to take on Elgin City.
The spoils have been shared shared so far this season with 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss.
With only 4 games left to play, Stephen Swift and the boys will be well aware of what needs to be done. We still sit 3 points behind Edinburgh City, so will need some help along the way if we want to clinch a play-off spot.
Every match and training session between now and the ned of the season is vital, and Warriors TV spoke to Stephen Swift about how this week has gone.
“I think the place has been really positive even although we’ve not been picking up the results. I believe that we’ve been playing well and there’s not much else I could’ve asked of the boys on Saturday. I thought that we absolutely dominated the game from start to finish and, unfortunately, we didn’t get the rub of the green and the ball didn’t fall for us. We’ve got to take the positives in that we’ve created some good chances and we’ve got a good shape and a good structure and we’re defending well. I just think it was one of those games. We’ve just got to keep positive and hope that we can get 3 points on Saturday against Elgin City.”
One player that has excited the crowds this season has been Euan O’Reilly. After making an appearance as a half time sub on Saturday, he really showed how good he can be. He wasn’t on from the start on Saturday but his performance must merit a start against Highland, but how much of a headache does that give Swifty?
“It looks like Euan is getting to back to where we think he’ll be. Obviously the injury took the wind out of his sails but he looks as if he’s got his fitness and confidence back and that’s what we want from Euan.”
Peter Urminsky remains at St Mirren for another 7 days and another player that missed out last week was Tam Orr as he struggles to recover from an injury picked up against Kelty Hearts. Our top scorer will also miss out this weekend, but he’s not the only absentee as Swifty let us know.
“Ross Forbes has got covid. Spencer Moreland has picked up an injury. Mikey Anderson is out as well as Tam Orr. So we’ve got a fair few injuries, but like I’ve always said, I think that we’ve got a really good squad to cope with that, and that’s been proven during the times when we’ve had a number of players out this season.”
