Martyn Corrigan says there’s been a change in attitude from his Warriors in recent weeks.
The Stenhousemuir boss reckons that his team have a new-found determination and are ready to do battle as the Second Division promotion race hots up.
The Warriors lost 2-1 to run-away league leaders Queen of the South last week, but still attracted praise from fans and pundits alike.
“There’s no disputing the fact we should have taken the three points,” said Corrigan. “After the game, reporters were saying that given the way we had played, we should be top of the league. Queens had two chances and took them both, but they’re a quality side.
“I’ve detected a change of attitude in the dressing the room recently, there’s a real desire to push on for the rest of the season.”
While the influence of new new signings such as Marc Corcoran is clear, Corrigan also praised the performances of the centre-back pairing of Ross McMillan and Scott Buist, a partnership he rates as “the best in the league”.
Stenhousemuir face East Fife at home on Saturday before travelling to basement club Albion Rovers on Tuesday evening.
Stewart Kean and Jamie Reid are both rated doubts for the weekend’s match.
