I thought the last game at kirkcaldy we played well for most parts late goals beat us but we had a good few chances before they scored,If only we can find a striker someone like Andy Ryan would be fine.read the Rohan report ,doesn't fill me with much hope to be honest I thought the Dundee keeper was a lot better.will need to play better than we did v Forfar.

From where I was after the Methil game this was so much better despite that late OG. The effort they put in the first half to get ahead maybe put us a wee bit low on energy in the second half but full credit to all of the players for that battling performance. At least this week I can say Russell did score! Raith are clearly a good side but you have to wonder about their away form this season. Thought Watt did play well but MOM? The stand side linesman was a joy to watch as he made almost every decision after the Ref gave it. Thought Bobby Barr might well have got a Red as that foul was from behind and worse than a lunge but with seconds to go he got away with it. Felt the 3-5-1-1 worked really well although Stewart fell out of it a bit in 2nd half. On to QP now and with undersoil heating on the pitch, it will be just in the stand I need four hillwalking layers.

I thought we were a revelation today. Played with a high tempo, snapped into tackles and passed the ball forward with none of the slow play and sideways and backward passing that we usually see. It was a brilliant first half and we managed to maintain the intensity till the end. We came close to creating that one 2nd half chance which would have put the game beyond the opposition. They had 3 or 4 on target and put 2 in - the keeper still needs to do better. The referee gave them about 80% of the decisions and seemed to play on well beyond 90 minutes although I couldn't see where the injury time came from.

Incredible that we didn't win that game, but with the same level of performance we'll blow teams away.
