SONS gaffer Ian Murray is delighted at the effort and application being shown by his team that has seen fifteen points posted from the last six matches.
The latest victory was last Saturday’s pleasing win against Hamilton Accies which moved the Sons off the bottom of the table for the first time in what has been a roller coaster season.
Ian said : “It’s pleasing that we now sit 8th and it’s just reward for the effort the players are putting in.
“Getting off the bottom is a psychological boost for everyone.
“We have a foothold now, but we won’t get carried away.
“I said when I came in that I wanted our ground to be a place where other teams won’t want to come to. We need to be making it very difficult for others to come and win the points and in that respect it’s another box ticked.
“It wasn’t a pretty game of football on Saturday, but we are showing grit and determination and the players must take a lot of credit for turning things round.
“We did though score some good goals. Turner’s finish for the opener was top drawer stuff and Gils pass into the net for the second was also quality.
“It’s Livingston we play next and they have some good footballers in their team allowing them to adapt to different formations.
“We are now able to compete on our own terms and it’s another game we are all looking forward to.”
