Rangers Preview

Last updated : 02 April 2004 By Firparkcorner

We have seen our lead over seventh placed Livingston cut to five points and Dundee United have leapt us in the race for fifth. If results go badly for us on Saturday, the pressure will be on the boys to do well on Sunday.

However, we have no reason to fear this Rangers side. Not only have they struggled this season but they are already looking to bring in youngsters in preparation for next season. We know better than anyone else that youngsters, not matter how talented they are, can have off days.

In our previous matches with Rangers this season, we drew an exciting game at Fir Park and narrowly lost out to a late goal at Ibrox. Perhaps it is our turn to get a win.

A home win will come with the added bonus of being the final nail in the coffin of Rangers championship hopes. It’s obviously a shame that Celtic will be handed the league but that is just a matter of time – it would be nice if we were the ones to finally kill off the Ginger Judas’ season.

Kenny Wright will presumably be back in contention after missing out last week and with Stevie Craig getting fitter all the time we might finally see David Clarkson get the rest he so clearly needs. Phil O’Donnell played, and scored, in the U21s loss in Kilmarnock mid-week but long-term absentees Partridge and Leitch are still out.

There have been tough games between the sides this season and there is no reason why we can’t earn a deserved win. 2-1 to the Dossers and Eck is winning the same as us this year…
