We tried a different formation today to see how things would work and also to allow us to get a good look at Aberdeen for next week’s Cup Semi-Final. Today was what I expected, Aberdeen to be stuffy and hard to beat. It was not a great performance from us but we managed to dig out the three points and I am happy with that.”
