Tough old game as Airdrie look to have really improved under Murray, and despite their efforts yesterday I don't see Stenny doing us any favours. 

That said, we probably have to win.

Much obliged.

Onto the game.
Arguable this is Murrays biggest test yet, in the fact that he's now got his stamp on the team and the fitness levels are up massively. Are Raith still unbeaten in the league at home?
I don't imagine we'll change too much and I'd still be happy to see Victoria benched in favour of McIntosh but won't be too fussed either way.
The pressure will really be on the defence this week and I just hope the mistakes are at a minimum.
I wouldn't be too disheartened with a draw but if Murray managed to fashion any kind of ugly win here, I'll be delighted.

Raith 2-2 Airdrie

It's only November, well December the time this game comes around, but every game feels like a must win at the minute if we have any aspirations of winning the league. Arbroath falling to Stranraer yesterday, albeit in the cup, should hopefully give other teams a bit belief that they are beatable.
I think we'll line up similarly to how we started vs QP. I'd rather Gillespie was in the middle of the park but Watson had a torrid time vs Airdrie earlier in the season, so I think he'll remain at right back this week. I'd not be against Duggan starting if he was fit, but Buchanan played well yesterday so he'll most likely keep his place.

Gillespie did well at Right Back I thought and Buchanan had a pretty good game also, no need to change anything.

Gillespie was torn apart several times yesterday at RB.

Watson on the other hand looked Brilliant when he came on

I thought he looked a bit rough at times but Watson has looked miles off it against Stenny, East Fife and Forfar, he came on yesterday with the game in the bag and Queens sitting off towards the end. 

Either way, Right Back is a bit of an issue anyway.

I thought Gillespie struggled at times, but wondered if that was more rustiness rather than an unfamiliarity with the position. Fairly certain he’s played there earlier in his career.

Watson has probably been our weakest link all season though.

Funny auld game this football eh, people’s opinions are great. Personally I feel Watson is a diamond in the rough eh, I think in a year or 2 he’ll be excellent, and has done fine so far. He’s just a young lad. Where as I think Murray has been our weakest link this season thus far, and he was my player of the season last season.

I think Watson could well come good, I just don't think he's anywhere near ready yet.

I don't want to write him off at all, because as you say he could come good, but its got a Reece Donaldson feel about it. He's clearly got the compete level and tries to get stuck in but I don't think he's ready yet. I feel some of our players, especially Davidson, don't trust him enough on the ball and so sometimes play a more risky pass when it would be easier to give it to Watson.

Interestingly, against Stenny Benedictus went absolutely mental at Thomson saying "Help him out, he's a young laddie". Think they could just be trying to protect him possibly.

Rovers to be 2-0 down with 5 minutes to go and then mount an amazing fightback to win 3-2. Scarves and Union jacks on the pitch.

Oh,  those days are gone now, and in the past...

The calamitous one has renewed his season ticket at Parkhead.

Same again please Mr. Murray
