Pressley - we're still in it to win it

FALKIRK boss Steven Pressley has insisted that his side still have the potential to be crowned First Division champions.

The Bairns have endured a miserable start to 2011, having been dumped out of the cup by Partick and comprehensively beaten by Queen of the South before narrowly losing out to Dundee at the weekend.

They travel to play current league leaders Raith Rovers this Saturday, knowing that a defeat would leave them 13 points off the summit.

But Pressley this week reafirmed his belief in his team – and his ambition to return Falkirk to the top flight at the first time of

asking.

"There is still everything to play for," he said. "I'm well aware that

previous First Division sides that have looked off the pace at this stage have gone on to win the title."
