RAY McKINNON’S PRE-MATCH THOUGHTS

Ray McKinnon spoke to the media during his visit to Strathcarron Hospice earlier this week, here’s what the Falkirk boss had to say…

On recent league defeats to Dundee United and Ayr United…

“It’s a big game, we aren’t hiding away from that. I am quite pleased with the progress we have made over the last two matches, I think we should have taken more from them.

“We were 2-0 up against Ayr and set backs cost us the game and then last Saturday I felt was fairly even, we made a mistake and then missed a few chances. At the moment we are getting punished at both ends.

“I see progress over the past few weeks, but we need to keep doing that and seeing it every week. If we do then the points will come.”

On Alloa Athletic and the Indodrill Stadium pitch…

“It’ll be a really tough game at Alloa, but one that we are going to be ready for. The players have been really disappointed, they have put a lot of effort in to recent matches, they’ve kept a good shape and they know they have to work extremely hard off the ball.

“Alloa have put together a strong squad. They’ve not been murdered by anyone in the league. At home they are quite formidable, it’s a tough place to go and the astroturf is tight.

“We have to go there and make sure we are at our best. You can play on all different sizes of parks, but at the end of the day it comes down to who wants to win the game the most and who wants to work the hardest for it.”

On Jordan McGhee’s return to training…

“Jordan McGhee is back in training ahead of schedule and he’s telling me he is ready to play on Saturday so that’s a positive. I love that attitude, whether he is ready or not we will see, but it is great to have someone pushing so hard like that.”
