I thought they were better than us at NDP, despite us having more of the ball, but we made life easy for them by lumping it long to Berra and Souttar. We’re definitely going to need to improve on Saturday’s performance.
We're also 2 points off top 6 so league is very close.
If you're the glass half-empty type (on here - surely not?
) you'll note that it's very tight at the bottom, take away our head-to-head v Dundee and they're actually ahead of us (so they're better against the rest of the league), and Killie have improved since changing their manager (6 points from 6 versus 6 from 9 before).
But if you're glass half-full, we're top of the bottom five, with a significantly better goal difference, closer to the top six than the bottom two, and we're the only team apart from Celtic unbeaten in the last five games.
The congested December fixture list will tell us a lot. I'm looking for us to start by taking something at Tynecastle - at least a draw, but I'm hopeful (on the basis of our recent form and overall away form) that we can win.
