DUMBARTON boss Stevie Aitken and his squad are positive about key aspects of their performance against Hibernian on Saturday, as they prepare for the visit of St Mirren this weekend.
“While we were disappointed by the result, I felt that the overall performance was a positive one against Hibs,” the boss told Sons View yesterday.
“It was a narrow defeat against an outstanding team which turned on a decision that, on another day, may not have gone against us.
The Easter Road outfit are a side that has great players in a squad that has been put together with a lot of money.
“We matched them for long spells of the match and after a cautious start we had chances to put them under pressure.”
Aitken added: “Their boss, Neil Lennon, was complimentary after the game, recognising that it was Hibs’ hardest 90 minutes of the season so far.”
“We competed well, and our season will be defined by games against the teams around us rather than this,” was his verdict to the media after the match on Saturday.
