Regardless of the progress weve made - and we undoubtedly have made a lot - I still dont see us going 3-0 down in a game and winning 4-3. That kind of game defines seasons and wins you leagues unfortunately. As others have said, beat them twice and you never know, not over till its over and willing/hoping to be surprised etc,but Id be expecting us to have to take the play-off route now.

As much as you hate to say it, youve almost got to hold your hands up say fair play tbh. Its still not over but its definitely theirs to lose now.

No "almost" about it to be honest. That's why they will win the league and probably with a bit to spare. Bottle.

Had we beaten Dunfermline at home in November the gap would currently be one point instead of seven. That's how damaging our complete and ongoing inability to win the big games against direct rivals is. Until we start rectifying that, it's always going to be a struggle to get out of this league.

They've pissed it and shown up the standard of this "really tough league" for what it is. Fair play.

Massively odds on that it's their league now.

Tbh, we shouldn't have been so far behind come the window. We also shouldn't have allowed 3 of the 4 games v Dunfermline to be "don't lose" for them. A sticky patch at the start and before Xmas pretty much fucked it for us in terms of ever catching them. Of course 2 of those games still to come and I don't think wel get a better chance to beat them through there than a midweek evening, but the fact remains, they are highly likely to be able to approach those games in a way that really suits them.

For that reason, taking 6 points is a colossal task, and that's the bare minimum we need before looking for favours. Airdrie will obviously be hurting and have a point to prove next weekend, so maybe we'll get a couple of that 7 back quickly, but still....

Theres always a plus, result completely Fcks up Airdrie as they wont come back from todays humiliation &mauling.

The kind of result that will go a long way in securing the top slot, as cant see them hitting any shite form after this result, with only the last quarter to go.

However we just need to win all our remaining games and hope they drop points. Can we do it - yes we can..

Correct, we were simply not good enough for half the season and we've only had 2 months worth of form worthy of being a title contender.

As I say, we need 6 points from them or its the play offs.
