THERE’S only one thing Stenhousemuir want for Christmas - a return to winning ways in the league.
The Warriors last tasted victory in the Second Division back on October 6 at home to East Fife. Since then, they’ve managed a cup victory against Berwick and several draws, that on another day, should have been wins.
Last weekend against Arbroath was a classic example, according to assistant manager Kevin McGoldrick: “Anyone that saw the game would tell you that we were the better side,” he said.
“We played very well and deserved the three points.
“Although we had to settle for the draw, both myself and Martyn (Corrigan) were impressed with the performance.
“I think the players are getting their confidence back. Having Eric Paton back in the starting line-up is a big boost, it allowed us to push Brian Hodge further up the park and that seemed to make us tick.
“All we need know is that win to kick-start our season.”
An ideal time to achieve that would be this Saturday against Albion Rovers.
“You could say its a match we should win, but I’m sure the Rovers players will be saying the same thing themselves,” added McGoldrick.
Andy Rodgers is a doubt. John Gemmell will not return to first team action until at least January.
