Bottom Six Fixtures

So the dates look a bit weird but presumably that's to get the Scottish Cup and international games played.

Time to put Saturday behind us, get a decent Cup run including revenge against Hamilton and then put down a statement of intent by finishing 7th.

Would be nice to relegate someone as well. Hamilton look a solid bet to me.

4 away league games in a row. f**king disgraceful. Scottish football should get its last rites. SPFL/SFA couldnt run a bath.

We had 4 home games on the bounce recently............

I'm struggling to see the relevance of this given there's no fans in stadia right now.

Anyway, it's 5 if you include the Cup game. :lol:

You are right of course. People forget that it's not just about fan attendance, but also the cumulative effect of the players constantly traveling, and other logistics and costs for the club being compressed into a short timeframe with lots of away fixtures close together. We're not just talking about short journeys, as if every fixture was either Kilmarnock or Hamilton it's a short trip, but when you're adding in an 8-10 hour round trip to Inverness it's quite a lot. Thankfully there is a bit of a gap either side of that fixture though at least.

This mini-league will be no pushover, given the difficulties we have putting the ball in the net.

Killie seem to be getting better under Wright, we needed a penalty to get past RC last time out, and Accies are their usual fighting selves at this time of the season. United have just beaten Aberdeen, though Dons are short of a manager at the moment. Only Motherwell seem to be still an easy touch.

I'm not usually so pessimistic, but we'll need to be better than we've been recently to finish seventh.

ONE trip away to Dingwall........................how do you think Ross County feel? 

Jeezo, you'd think it was a hardship.

They, the club, manager and players, have plenty of time to get to Dingwall, they get paid plenty to get free travel to and from the game.

I did predict there would be whining about the fixtures, called that right.

A set of costs we had it in our own hands to alleviate through higher award money for finishing 6th.

There's only so much you can blame the authorities for.

Yes you did & i stupidly thought with no fans attending what could anyone actually find to moan about.

Anything seems to be the answer

Cannae really complain after the run of home games we got in February and couldn't take advantage of.

10th April seems a long long way away.
Not helping my lack of interest in hear remaining fixtures.

However, I am looking forward to the Cup game against Accies - even more so now, knowing that we’ve already gone further in the competition than Hearts.
