Tough nut to crack

West Lothian Courier - - Property -

Frus­tra­tion is prob­a­bly the best word to use this week. It was an­other cred­i­ble point against a strong Queen of the South team , but yet again it had the feel of two points thrown away.

Look­ing back at the first five league games, it is ap­par­ent we are go­ing to be a tough nut to crack. We have com­peted in ev­ery game and could be sit­ting with max­i­mum points.

We aren’t though, and as I eluded to a few weeks ago, this isn’t League One and we won’t get away with miss­ing chances or slip­ping up at the back.

Satur­day was no dif­fer­ent. For 70 min­utes, it was as good a per­for­mance as you’ll see all sea­son but again a lapse in con­cen­tra­tion has al­lowed Queens to score two goals from nowhere.

Com­ing away with a point in the end was a good ef­fort from the team and showed ex­cel­lent char­ac­ter when they may well have crum­bled.

It’s time now to be ruthless. We need to start tak­ing ad­van­tage of be­ing the bet­ter team in games and mak­ing it count with points.

Next up is the long trip up north as we come up against In­ver­ness Cale­do­nian This­tle. This will be a tough game but one we should be con­fi­dent go­ing in to.

It’s your prover­bial six poin­ter as a win sends us clear of the hosts but de­feat and we would drop be­low them.

Safe jour­ney to those trav­el­ling north and don’t for­get to get right be­hind the team and man­ager and bring the three points back.
