So we won ugly. Big deal. We won. That’s what matters. The record shows we got three points.
I agree that Livi bossed the game. They pressed the man on the ball, they looked more committed to chasing things, they fought harder than we did. When we got the chance we played the neater football, but that would have counted for nothing if we hadn’t got the goal.
But we did. We’ve played better and taken less, so I’m happy with that. And results elsewhere went for us: St Mirren and Dundee both lost again, and we’re pulling away from them.
A few good individual performances to praise: I thought Martin was immense, Ziggy a good shout for MOTM, and more than happy with Woods and the back four.
Too many daft challenges, notably tackles from behind, cost us cards, and now we miss Miller next week. I thought Livi were by far the dirtier team, but were savvy enough not to get so many cards. At least now Dazza and Dougie will be back.
Onwards and upwards.
