KEEP UP THE CRAZY FORM Kerr keen to end hurt at home as he looks to rein in Raith
Brian Kerr hopes Albion Rovers “crazy” start to the season can continue as they look to stun unbeaten League One leaders Raith Rovers.
On the road, Rovers are averaging four goals a game, however at Cliftonhill they have scored just twice in three games — and conceded an alarming 11.
With the Kirkcaldy club arriving in Coatbridge after opening up an early six-point lead at the top of the table, Kerr is determined to keep them within touching distance.
And he called for his men to get their first home point of the season.
“It’s been a crazy start,” he told the Advertiser. “It seems like we are two totally different teams away and at home.
“Away from home the surfaces have seemed to suit our style of play. The size of the pitches lets us play our game.
“I understand that our own pitch can be difficult to play on, but both sides are playing in the same conditions — so I don’t want to use that as an excuse.
“We have got to look at how we can tweak a few things to change results.
“If we had been told at the start of the season we would be fourth, having won four games, at this stage we would have seen it as a decent start.
“One more point at home and we could have been second. We need to put it right.”
He continued: “It’s been a rollercoaster so far this season but we have to better at home against the leaders.
“As a group, I don’t think the boys should fear anyone. They are a confident group and shock people every week.”
Kerr also laughed off suggestions he was in line for the Falkirk job following the departure of Peter Houston earlier this week.
Some bookmakers have the Rovers boss amongst the frontrunners after an impressive start to life in the dugout.
However, he stated it was “news to him” and had heard “nothing about it.”
Crazy start But Kerr is hoping for a home win
