SONS boss Ian Murray saw his team keep in touch of a promotion play-off spot against Raith Rovers last Saturday with a stunning 3-1 win against the Ramsden Cup holders.

Goals from Mark Gilhaney, Mitch Megginson and Colin Nish put Sons on easy street against a good Rovers team and the result draw the club level with this weekend’s opponents Queen of the South in the Championship table.

Murray said : “It was a good performance and we got the result we needed to stay in touch of reaching a top four finish.

“Queens have a game in hand tonight and play Raith at Starks Park, but whatever the outcome, this Saturday’s game has real meaning.”

The gaffer also cleared up some confusion as to who was assisting him in the dugout at Kirkcaldy.

He said : “Jack is on holiday, so I drafted in one of my scouts, John Green, to help.

“It’s always good to get a different perspective on things and it all worked out well.”

Looking forward to the next set of matches, the manager is keen to stress that it’s a case of one game at a time.

He continued :”There are 3 games left and each one will be treated on its merits. We have achieved our pre-season objective of staying in the Championship which is a magnificent achievement.

“The aim now is to finish as high as we can.”
