Any news on Dobbie's injury. Really hoping he plays on Saturday. A great win at united sets us up hopefully with a bit of confidence to try and improve upon our home record. I will be there Saturday so hopefully see a home win and a strong push for a playoff place. Hope the home crowd improves as well. 

Naysmith Said he should be available in interview after last night's game so full squad almost available Martin injured and Brownlie suspended missing.

A combination of boredom and being continually pissed off at conceding from crosses I decided to have a look at the stats*.

 

Goals conceded via:-

 

Crosses: 12

Corners: 5

Crosses from a FK: 3

 

Direct FK: 1

Penalty: 3

 

I added in penalties as I can recall two of them and they were sheer stupidity on our part. My overall point is our inability to do the basics. The direct FK was as a result of us losing possession from our own throw in.

 

20 crosses conceded and 24 overall. It works out at almost a goal a game conceded from something that really should be easily dealt with. It's shocking how bad we are at defending setpieces/crosses. As a result of those goals we are 15 points worse off this season. It's a pity we are so bad in that department or we'd be sitting comfortably in a play-off spot.

 

 

* Going by OS reports.

Add in our propensity to give away stupid free kicks and then an inability to set a proper wall with a well positioned keeper (see United 2nd goal on Tuesday)

Must have been coached by the expert in that department.

Is it not 2 direct free-kicks? St.Mirren and Dundee U in consecutive games.

I thought there was more than one. So I've probably missed more crosses as well!

No, who's doing that? If you're looking to do some sort of surprise welcome with balloons and stuff then I'm on the Etihad flight arriving in Edinburgh on 16th April....

We’ll send Rusty, Besty and Nithsdale Wanderer. You’re unlikely to find a bigger trio of balloons.

Livingston play prehistoric football and it works for them bullied us all over the park. Awful way to play football on a dreadful pitch. Games like that will kill football.
