De­fen­sive wor­ries for Clifton­hill fans

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Sports -

Rovers have now claimed one point from the last four games and that last-minute de­feat to East Fife a few weeks ago is look­ing like the start of a mini slump.

It’s one that Brian Kerr will need to re­verse quickly if we are to drag our­selves back up the ta­ble.

What makes it worse is that all of th­ese games have been against teams sit­ting be­low us in the ta­ble with Satur­day’s 4-3 de­feat to For­far the case in point.

We beat them com­fort­ably ear­lier on this sea­son and we should have beaten them com­fort­ably at Clifton­hill.

De­spite dom­i­nat­ing pos­ses­sion and be­ing the more threat­en­ing side, Rovers found them­selves 4-2 down and ig­nored the most ba­sic rule of foot­ball.

You are at your most vul­ner­a­ble just af­ter scor­ing.

It must be a pri­or­ity for the man­age­ment to stem the flow of goals con­ceded by this team as we can­not de­pend on Con­nor Shields and Alan Trouten outscor­ing the op­po­si­tion ev­ery week.

Rovers will need to be near their best against Al­loa this week to keep the Wasps call­ing.
