I should put my old xmas 'lucky football socks' on to jinx LL's hoodoo then, whenever I've worn them we've drawn a game, never lost or won any, just keep fecking drawing games wearing them, i'm not superstitious but I stopped wearing them.
We still wont win but at least we wouldn't lose.
Did you wear them??
Was listening to Open All Mics travelling home from Buckie today & the game that got fewest mentions apart from in the last few minutes was this one. It sounded like a bore draw.
Other results went against us too... With the two teams that can catch us for second both closing the gap to 4 points....
Nah didn't wear them, just the suggestion that I should was enough though.
Game was ok, we started off brightly with a couple of skirmishes in their box, was difficult to see how close we were getting to scoring with it being up the other end and us sitting behind the Livi goal. Then St Mirren were looking dangerous down our right flank and I thought they were going to score with that Morgan shot that hit the post, turns out Alexander got something on it so fantastic save. We defended well though and everyone put in a shift and a half, and we also got several free kicks from distance put into their box that troubled St Mirren, with our headers going just wide or over.
2nd half was more even and neither of us looked that likely to score, St Mirren had plenty bodies on Hardie and when Miller went off he was feeding off the scraps from long balls to run onto. They also looked like they had been training all week defending our long throw ins, Ross obv did his homework this time after being taken apart by us in the last game.
Finished with both teams looking like they were happy with a point apiece, St Mirren took a short corner to waste time and I don't think we were particularly bothered about them just seeing the game out.
Decent result though, a win next week against Brechin would see off Dunfermline and we'd get 3rd place at worst. Looks like Utd are making a fight of it though so we'll need to see how their results go against Brechin & QoS for what we'll need against ICT in the Tues night game.
