SONS’ Boss Stevie Aitken says he’s looking forward to tomorrow’s clash with Airdrie at the Penny Cars Stadium.
Aitken, whose team managed a morale-boosting win against Montrose last weekend despite a horrendous injury list, is upbeat about the League One match in Lanarkshire.
“The boys trained well this week and there was a further bounce in their attitude”, said Stevie.
“A win against Montrose, a game I thought we thoroughly deserved to take all three points from. has given everyone a lift.
“We’ve had a horrific time with injuries and to a certain extent, we are still suffering.
“The news about Mango is a blow to him personally and to our squad. Craig is a vital member of our team.
“Michael Paton’s injury on his hamstring now falls into the long-term category having been out now for close to a month. he has, unfortunately still a few more weeks to go before we can risk him. However, Michael has started jogging and is making progress.
“Andy Little and Ross Perry have been a worry too, and their injuries are such that any attempt at a comeback without rest sets them back, but both two are getting there.
“Tomorrow’s game will be tough, but a win will put us above Airdrie in the table and that’s what we are aiming for.”
Commenting on other players who could feature tomorrow, the manager is confident that on-loan Celtic striker Jack Aitchison is capable of getting experience at DFC and importantly adding goals to his game.
“Jack is a talent,” continued Stevie. “He has pace and is highly thought of at Celtic and his time with us will be well spent.”
Tomorrow’s game kicks off at 3pm.
