Gaffer gets tough ahead of This­tle clash

Paisley Daily Express - - House Home -

St Mir­ren boss Jack Ross in­sists there ain’t no rest for the wicked, as he puts his stars back through their paces this week.

Ross al­lowed Saints’ first- team play­ers some time off last week fol­low­ing the can­cel­la­tion of their Cham­pi­onship clash with Liv­ingston, due to in­ter­na­tional call- ups for Lewis Mor­gan, Liam Smith and Kyle Ma­gen­nis.

Speak­ing after putting his play­ers through their paces, Ross ad­mits he has been tough on them as they aim to get up to speed ahead of Satur­day’s Scot­tish Cup clash with Loth­ian This­tle Hutchi­son Vale.

Ross said: “I have prob­a­bly been a bit harder on them at the start of this week than I usu­ally would but that is only be­cause they had an ex­tra few days off at the tail end of last week.

“But credit to them, they have all buck­led down and got on with it.

“We have worked on a num­ber of game sit­u­a­tions that are geared to­wards what they should ex­pect on Satur­day. It has prob­a­bly been a lit­tle bit more in­tense than they are used to but we are just mak­ing sure they head in to the game best pre­pared.

“We are tak­ing this game ex­tremely se­ri­ously and the boys will be well drilled about what it is we ex­pect from them.”
