It’s give and take for Stevie

STEVIE Murray has been in fine form this season but insists that Stenhousemuir’s rise to joint-top of the table is a team effort.

The 28-year-old winger has been instrumental in helping The Warriors win their last three games, with the former Kilmarnock player winning praise from boss Davie Irons for his performances.

Modest Murray says however that it’s simply a case of give and take.

“I’m enjoying my football right now and pleased to know the gaffer thinks I’m doing well,” he told Heraldsport.

“But it’s the team that allow me to play the way I do, feeding my passes and playing me into space.

“I like to think I help them and they help me.”

Stenny will make the short trip to Forthbank on Saturday knowing that a victory could put them clear at the top of the table.

Both teams will be fresh going into the game, having enjoyed a weekend off as league football took a break for international matches last Saturday.

A group of Warriors players travelled to Glasgow to watch Scotland’s game against the Czech Republic, further evidence of the camaraderie that exists at Ochilview currently.

Although the Scots conceded a last-minute equaliser, Murray said it was an enjoyable afternoon out.

“About 12 or 13 of us made the trip through. We had a good time, despite the result.”
