Raith Rovers vs Greenock Morton
Saturday 9th April 2022
View from Dougie Imrie
Talking about the performance against Kilmarnock and looking to replicate it, Dougie said, “At the time, after the Kilmarnock game, I thought the boys were superb all over the pitch for the full 90 minutes. It was an accomplished performance and we gave Kilmarnock very little to work off and we need to take that same sort of performance into tomorrow against Raith which will be another tough game.”
It was another good performance from Iain Wilson who picked up a spot in Team of the Week, “Iain has been superb since he’s come into the club, at the start he was obviously looking to get fit after not having a lot of game time at Dunfermline but you can see with his recent performances that he’s getting stronger and fitter each game. Hopefully between now and the end of the season he can keep turning in these types of performances and then we can maybe sit down and see where we go from there.”
Looking ahead at tomorrow’s game and the last time out against Raith, Dougie had this to say, “Tomorrow will be a tough game, they’ve played Sunday and Wednesday. I went to the game on Wednesday and from Raith’s perspective it’s two poor goals that they lost but again it’s about us and we’ve got to take care of the game, it will be tough and we need to be up for the challenge.
I think last time out when we played them at Cappielow we were the better team on the night, it was two poor goals to concede and we obviously had a big penalty shout, in games like that it comes down to the individual errors and not taking our chances when they come to us. There was a lot of pleasing aspects from that game but we need to take our performance from Friday night and apply it tomorrow against Raith.
Everyone’s fit and ready to go for tomorrow which is always good for a manager, a full selection to pick from and healthy players that are always hungry to get into the starting eleven.”
