ST MIRREN boss Jack Ross has encouraged his players to maintain the momentum gathered after last week’s Scottish Cup win over Dundee by dumping Falkirk today.

The Paisley gaffer is hoping that his side can use their win at Dens Park as a springboard as they attempt to climb away from the foot of the Championship.

Ross said: “I’ve argued the case before about us not quite achieving the results for some good performances, but the one thing we really have not been able to do is create a consistent momentum.
“We flirted with it with the results against Queen of the South and Raith Rovers earlier in the campaign and it looked as though we were on the cusp of that.

“Albeit we’ve managed to keep chipping away with points here and there and with the Cup wins, but we have still to put that really good run together that we are aiming for.”

The stuttering recent form of the visitors allied to the Saints’ impressive 2-0 victory last week is giving Ross hope that the three points will stay in Paisley this afternoon.

He added: “Falkirk haven’t been on the best run by their own high standards, but that can work both ways.

“They will have a determination to put the last couple of results right and, obviously, they are where they are in the league on merit.

“They have a good squad which is full of quality and proven at this level, as well.

“It’s a cliche, but they are all very difficult games in this league. We understand the importance of us winning games, so the players have to go in, show that and play in a manner which befits the determination we have.”
