Good evening and welcome to the programme. Outstanding goals and

:00:54.:00:59.

outstanding matches as well as outstanding talking points this

:01:00.:01:03.

evening and two outstanding guests. Marc Wilson has pled against the

:01:04.:01:08.

elite footballers in a career that has taken him to Celtic and back

:01:09.:01:13.

again to Dundee United. He is joined by Stephen McManus who is now a

:01:14.:01:17.

defensive linchpin at Motherwell. It should be at clean sheet this

:01:18.:01:25.

evening. We start with Dundee United. All the talk had been of the

:01:26.:01:32.

tangerine bubble bursting. Three straight beats. Last weekend they

:01:33.:01:37.

stopped the rot. This lunchtime Deborah Wade to Inverness Caledonian

:01:38.:01:40.

Thistle and still looking for their first home win. He earns himself a

:01:41.:02:21.

corner kick. Danny Williams with the corner. The opening goal comes after

:02:22.:02:33.

five minutes. The top goal-scorer for Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

:02:34.:02:42.

The first to react with Billy McKay. He scored the only goal between the

:02:43.:02:51.

sides in August. Armstrong takes this. That is cleared into the

:02:52.:03:08.

stand. It tricky one. Gary Mackay-Steven swings it in. That is

:03:09.:03:15.

a great header from Keith Watson. You could see his neck muscles

:03:16.:03:22.

moving a crash that in. -- as he crashed. Dundee United eyelevel.

:03:23.:03:29.

Another goal for Keith Watson. He is happier now. Sent away by the

:03:30.:03:39.

goalkeeper. Here is John Rankin. That is deflected. Hits the post and

:03:40.:03:50.

comes back. That is blocked. What a chance for Brian Graham. Rankin was

:03:51.:03:59.

there and it was deflected. The goalkeeper was struggling. Watson

:04:00.:04:18.

goes after it. He goes for the shot. Some errors starting to creep into

:04:19.:04:29.

the game of Johnson. -- Johnson. Tucked away. A great save from the

:04:30.:04:44.

goalkeeper. Danny Williams. He takes the corner. Was that taken back?

:04:45.:04:56.

John Hughes thinks so. He cant believe it. This is an entertaining

:04:57.:05:10.

game. Graeme Shinnie goes through. That is a penalty! The referee does

:05:11.:05:19.

not hesitate and points to the spot. The penalty was awarded. Nic Rouse

:05:20.:05:30.

has taken to successful penalties this term. -- Nick Ross. Off the

:05:31.:06:15.

post! What a wonderful move from Dundee United. Setting up the

:06:16.:06:26.

chance, but that is long. Gary Mackay-Steven. The referee has given

:06:27.:06:32.

a corner. I think that should have been a goal kick. The hand was

:06:33.:06:39.

across and it came out from Gary Mackay-Steven. To be fair to him, he

:06:40.:06:52.

just shrugged it off. I felt was a good game. I do not think there was

:06:53.:07:00.

much in it. There was a few of the woodwork. There were some good

:07:01.:07:07.

chances to score. Obviously we are disappointed not to get the win. I

:07:08.:07:15.

turned around and saw the substitutes having a laugh. They are

:07:16.:07:25.

in for extra training tomorrow! Hopefully you will be back next

:07:26.:07:29.

weekend but the Ross County match. Was that a fair result today? I

:07:30.:07:33.

think so. I think both teams will be happy enough. There was a lot of

:07:34.:07:40.

chances in the game. Inverness Caledonian Thistle missed a penalty.

:07:41.:07:45.

We had the goal post twice. But I think that was a fair trial. In

:07:46.:07:49.

terms of the goals when a defensive point of view, could there be any

:07:50.:07:56.

improvement? They will be disappointed in some respects. The

:07:57.:08:12.

striker loses the first header. He will be disappointed with this one.

:08:13.:08:18.

This is a fantastic header. Your protege, Mark. Keith Watson. Every

:08:19.:08:24.

time I miss out, he tends to score, so I am delighted for him. He

:08:25.:08:28.

generated such incredible power. Fantastic. A couple of penalty

:08:29.:08:34.

incidents and one was given and were not given. Was this a penalty? I

:08:35.:08:42.

think being honest, you would say this is a penalty. A great first

:08:43.:08:47.

touch from Graeme Shinnie. He gets caught flat-footed. Perhaps if he

:08:48.:08:56.

just moved to speak that bit quicker, he would have gotten away

:08:57.:09:00.

with that. Is that a sign of inexperience? It is one of those

:09:01.:09:07.

things in the game. That was well followed up. In terms of Dundee

:09:08.:09:15.

United, they had a penalty? It was not given. You give it? If you are

:09:16.:09:22.

Jackie McNamara you will be bitterly disappointed. It is a great ball

:09:23.:09:25.

over the top from Gary Mackay-Steven. He has not got a

:09:26.:09:32.

touch on the ball. The centre back knows he is struggling to get back

:09:33.:09:36.

and I am amazed there were no claims from Gary Mackay-Steven. He is just

:09:37.:09:42.

such a nice guy and solely act. He did not complain. Because he did not

:09:43.:09:48.

complain, there were no protests from the other players. We will talk

:09:49.:09:52.

more about Motherwell and Aberdeen in a moment. I Inverness and Dundee

:09:53.:09:59.

United still in the mix? I think so. Dundee United had been in great

:10:00.:10:07.

form. Inverness have had a change of manager and John Hughes has come in.

:10:08.:10:11.

He is a great coach. Both teams will be right up there. I Dundee United

:10:12.:10:20.

author of that blip? It was a tough Christmas period for us. We did not

:10:21.:10:29.

pick up any new enough points. We lost confidence and we lost our way

:10:30.:10:32.

but we came back against Hibernian last week. Hopefully that is ours

:10:33.:10:39.

over it. Motherwell have become real contenders for the second spot this

:10:40.:10:42.

season. Ever since the shock defeat to Albion Rovers and a heavy loss to

:10:43.:10:48.

Celtic it has been five wins on the trot. They were at Tynecastle today.

:10:49.:11:18.

The experience to Jamie Hamill returns for Hearts in a side that

:11:19.:11:22.

has seven players aged 21 years or under. Sending it out to McFadden. A

:11:23.:11:55.

fine stop there. Saving his blushes. Almost an own goal. That is a great

:11:56.:12:05.

strike. He is on loan from Rotherham. He also says he will not

:12:06.:12:18.

shave until the recent good run of wins comes to an end! That is

:12:19.:12:28.

another fine stop by the Hearts goalkeeper. He is on top form. John

:12:29.:12:59.

Sutton scores! The former Hearts man returns to haunt his old club. He

:13:00.:13:05.

opens the scoring for Motherwell. It is five minutes before the interval.

:13:06.:13:23.

That was a lovely pass. Sutton will claim it. His 11th goal of the

:13:24.:13:32.

season. What a terrific pass that is. Is this a chance? That was

:13:33.:13:41.

denied again by Jamie MacDonald. What great goalkeeping. Hearts have

:13:42.:14:03.

readjusted. That takes the deflection. What was the goalkeeper

:14:04.:14:24.

doing? Calum Paterson. I wonderful effort that was turned away. -- a

:14:25.:14:46.

wonderful. That was knocked away by Motherwell. This is Walker. That is

:14:47.:14:53.

a great effort from Jamie Walker. This is better play from heights. So

:14:54.:15:00.

much more in this game now. -- from Hearts. The corner from Smith.

:15:01.:15:11.

Hearts are desperate to level this match. A second chance by Paterson.

:15:12.:15:36.

He is claiming for a penalty. The fossil has sounded. -- the fossil.

:15:37.:16:01.

Stevenson knocks it on. He could not get that out from under his feet. He

:16:02.:16:06.

is now appealing a penalty. That was blocked by Nielsen.

:16:07.:16:18.

Every single one of them gave us everything. We dominated later on in

:16:19.:16:26.

the match. We played some really good stuff. We could have gone in

:16:27.:16:31.

more but in fairness to them, it was a spirited performance. They gave us

:16:32.:16:43.

a few frights in the second half. I woke up this morning and heard a

:16:44.:16:47.

celebrity Motherwell fan talk about title challengers. If you win next

:16:48.:16:56.

weekend it is on, is it not? We have managed a day 's and run so far. I

:16:57.:17:01.

do not think the manager gets as much praise as she should do. In

:17:02.:17:06.

terms of what has happened over the past half-dozen games, it is about

:17:07.:17:13.

what happens on the pitch, a huge amount of energy from Motherwell

:17:14.:17:20.

players. The manager works the lot on pressing. You know when to press

:17:21.:17:26.

and when not to press. Macfadyen knows when to put pressure. When we

:17:27.:17:31.

win the ball back we are comfortable in possession. That is what a lot of

:17:32.:17:36.

it has been down to, trying to work as hard as we can to win the ball

:17:37.:17:42.

back. That is a great strike but there is a slight deflection from

:17:43.:17:47.

the gallon? I think so. It would be hard to take the ball and the goal

:17:48.:17:54.

away from him but from this angle I think it was deflected. Hearts have

:17:55.:18:01.

had plenty well documented problems in recent times. The second half

:18:02.:18:08.

seemed to have a courageous performance from Hearts. Yes, they

:18:09.:18:15.

have showed enthusiasm. The fans have showed just how passionate they

:18:16.:18:22.

are. We managed to ride the storm. There were a few penalty claims

:18:23.:18:28.

here. I would think that was very harsh if it was given. Slight

:18:29.:18:35.

handball? A macro possible, it kind of came off of his face and he was

:18:36.:18:43.

quite far away. My feeling is that none of them where penalties. They

:18:44.:18:49.

showed for handball? From this site you can see it is more shoulder,

:18:50.:18:56.

chest, it would be very harsh if that was given. We talked about

:18:57.:19:02.

Motherwell's great run of recent form. It stems from when things were

:19:03.:19:08.

going badly. They hiding from Celtic, the shock from Albion

:19:09.:19:16.

Rovers. House or was that defeat? It was a tough one to take but when you

:19:17.:19:21.

see the results we have had, we have experienced leaders who have been in

:19:22.:19:26.

the game a longer time and you find when you take a knock, that is when

:19:27.:19:31.

it is a test of character. The lads have shown we have a good test of

:19:32.:19:36.

character. We had a group that are good together and have managed to

:19:37.:19:44.

run a few wins together. They will be challenging for second. It is an

:19:45.:19:52.

important time of the season to pick up points. Dundee United were on a

:19:53.:19:58.

great run, winning every game. You feel invincible, you keep going and

:19:59.:20:05.

keep going. Next weekend in other chapter of the Scottish Premiership

:20:06.:20:13.

will right itself. Join our team at half past four on BBC One on

:20:14.:20:18.

Saturday. We are back with all the Premiership delights on Sunday

:20:19.:20:24.

night. The highlights are available online as always. Next we are off to

:20:25.:20:31.

Firhill where the home side are looking to free themselves of the

:20:32.:20:34.

shackles of an unfortunate statistic. It is Saturday the 11th

:20:35.:20:45.

of January 2014 and Thistle have still not won a home match or

:20:46.:20:52.

season. I think we will win. New hope so what has changed? I hope he

:20:53.:20:58.

sticks with 4-4-2. Both teams looking like picking up

:20:59.:21:32.

more points these days. Wins over St Johnstone for County last week. It

:21:33.:21:38.

is a good all in. It almost found Taylor in the middle and it is the

:21:39.:21:46.

wonder save as well. Higginbotham's shot caused him the biggest problem

:21:47.:21:56.

dear. That is good play. Fraser is happy to see that goal. A good

:21:57.:22:04.

build-up from the hosts. Something had to happen at Ross County and

:22:05.:22:10.

Derek Adams trying to do that by making personnel changes at Ross

:22:11.:22:19.

County. That is picked up. Britain. It is 1-0. On the face of it, that

:22:20.:22:30.

is a magnificent finish from Kiss. He should have done better with

:22:31.:22:42.

that, Fox. Partick Thistle will feel aggrieved that they are behind in

:22:43.:22:49.

this game as the pick-up. Dilbert! It is 1-1. It is two in two for

:22:50.:22:58.

Taylor. Again the goalkeeper has surely got to do better than that.

:22:59.:23:02.

Michael Fraser beaten by Lionel Taylor. That free kick causes the

:23:03.:23:19.

problem for Fox. County threatening again. A good open game. That is for

:23:20.:23:30.

Aaron Taylor-Sinclair. And then Taylor. He has done it again. What a

:23:31.:23:36.

good signing he is proving to be for Alan Archibald. A great cross from

:23:37.:23:44.

Taylor-Sinclair. It was met by Taylor who gets his third in just

:23:45.:23:52.

two games. Partick Thistle turning it around in the first-half. They

:23:53.:23:56.

are looking for another one here. They might get it as well, you know.

:23:57.:24:03.

That is Wallace! And are Partick Thistle going to win at home for the

:24:04.:24:09.

first time this campaign? The dock by Higginbotham initially. Where has

:24:10.:24:16.

it all gone wrong for Derek Adams and Neil Cooper? They led 1-0, did

:24:17.:24:23.

Ross County. They are trying to respond. Britain off the line. It's

:24:24.:24:36.

Mixon. It is chaos again at Firhill. Derek Gordon somehow has squeezed

:24:37.:24:42.

this past Fox. It came off of the line initially for Elliott and

:24:43.:24:50.

Gordon, well, not great goalkeeping. Up and under time for County. He

:24:51.:24:58.

gets it to Kiss. He gets it again. It is 3-3. Lionel Taylor grabbed the

:24:59.:25:08.

44 Partick Thistle. Their new signing, Kiss, on his debut, he has

:25:09.:25:14.

done well. On loan from Cardiff City he brings Ross County right back

:25:15.:25:24.

into it. Meanwhile, Gary Glen replaced by Stuart Kettlewell. That

:25:25.:25:29.

is for Kettlewell. That is a horrible challenge on Ross Forbes. A

:25:30.:25:36.

red card will be flashed in the face of Stuart Kettlewell who is only

:25:37.:25:43.

just on as a second-half sub. Ross County are now down to ten men going

:25:44.:25:48.

into the closing stages. Taylor-Sinclair, is the to be a

:25:49.:25:57.

winner in this game? O'Donnell. That was not far away. A wonderful

:25:58.:26:05.

attempt. It came to him on the volley and a yard or so past. We

:26:06.:26:12.

were down at half time and conceded two goals. The goals we conceded

:26:13.:26:18.

were very poor. It was disappointing, to score three goals

:26:19.:26:22.

at home you have got to go ahead and win the match. It is something we

:26:23.:26:29.

have struggled with all year. Maybe not the greatest defending you will

:26:30.:26:34.

ever see in the world but let's talk about Lionel Taylor. He is on loan

:26:35.:26:38.

from Sheffield United, two goals yesterday. How important do you

:26:39.:26:46.

think he might be? I think he will do a fantastic job. Alan Archibald

:26:47.:26:51.

obviously knows of him. He has come in and scored a couple of goals

:26:52.:26:56.

already. Partick Thistle have missed that kind of presence. The

:26:57.:27:00.

disappointing thing for Ross County is that he has not had to do much to

:27:01.:27:06.

lose his man. The centre back gets attracted to the ball. All credit to

:27:07.:27:17.

him for the finish. It was a tale of two new signings. Kessler has just

:27:18.:27:23.

arrived from Cardiff City looked a class act. It was against the run of

:27:24.:27:28.

play and perhaps the goalkeeper will not want to see this again. I do not

:27:29.:27:33.

think he would be too happy with this but it was a nice touch. Just

:27:34.:27:38.

shaped around the defender into the corner. It is a goalkeeper's

:27:39.:27:44.

nightmare when we see is down their ready to save it and it bounces over

:27:45.:27:49.

him. And this turned out to be the equaliser. Not the best defending.

:27:50.:27:58.

Good composure when he gets into that area. He knows he has to tuck

:27:59.:28:04.

it away and he has rolled it under the goalkeeper. We talked about how

:28:05.:28:10.

Partick Thistle have not won this season then they throw away that 3-1

:28:11.:28:17.

advantage, do you think it has become a psychological problem? For

:28:18.:28:21.

Alan Archibald that will probably be as saw a draw as you can ever

:28:22.:28:27.

imagine, it will feel like a defeat. They were 3-1 up, then to lose three

:28:28.:28:34.

goals at home, it is hard to take for anybody. They will be bitterly

:28:35.:28:37.

disappointed and no doubt they will be trying to work out that on

:28:38.:28:44.

Monday. Last weekends and Johnstone had slipped into the bottom six. St

:28:45.:28:48.

Mirren where keen to make up ground on their fellow Saints. The was a

:28:49.:28:55.

poignant start to the proceedings with a one-minute silence for the

:28:56.:28:57.

former player. Chris Millar onto Hasselbank. Stevie

:28:58.:29:46.

May and pork sit inside. Hasselbank. He pulled that inside and Stevie May

:29:47.:29:54.

cracks it off of the top of the Bard. Hasselbank tried to drag it

:29:55.:29:58.

back, it deflected in and almost fell well. Hasselbank to Davidson.

:29:59.:30:08.

Here is Stevie May. Hasselbank has got the right side. He just sends it

:30:09.:30:16.

wide. Great football from St Johnstone from just outside their

:30:17.:30:21.

own penalty area. What a pass. Hasselbank beat the goalkeeper but

:30:22.:30:29.

beat the post, too. St Johnstone are bright and breezy at the moment.

:30:30.:30:37.

Through two Stevie May. He has to go down to make the save. Again the

:30:38.:30:44.

passing has been crisp. A great run from Stevie May to get himself into

:30:45.:30:50.

shooting position. They have won only one of the last four matches.

:30:51.:30:57.

Looking for a breakthrough. A great free kick. It just get in but of the

:30:58.:31:23.

bar it went. -- Rowan-macro the bar. Will It was Marc McAusland with the

:31:24.:31:36.

first one. Great play by Hasselbank. Marie Davidson. The goalkeeper

:31:37.:31:43.

lacked conviction. Back down the middle. Davidson simply could not

:31:44.:31:50.

miss. It is the breakthrough they needed. They will be feeling they

:31:51.:31:57.

have not really got started in this game. Stevie May! What a great goal!

:31:58.:32:12.

He took control of it and looked for the corner and sounded. He knew

:32:13.:32:19.

exactly what he wanted to do. -- he founded. Frazer Wright knew that was

:32:20.:32:32.

in. Going forward again and looking for offside. He gets it away at the

:32:33.:32:48.

second attempt. A third goal looked virtually certain. Stevie May missed

:32:49.:32:53.

it the first time. He did not get a touch on the second time. Stoppage

:32:54.:33:07.

time here. And again, the French man is denied. A great save. We lacked a

:33:08.:33:19.

good head on over and that disappoints me. Is it a bad day? I

:33:20.:33:27.

hope so. But we must start doing if we want to compete, we must come to

:33:28.:33:34.

places like this and pick up points. I thought we were excellent. We have

:33:35.:33:41.

worked really hard this week trying to get more bodies in the box. I

:33:42.:33:48.

thought to date we created some great opportunities. The only

:33:49.:33:51.

disappointing thing is that it was 0-0 at half-time. St Johnstone

:33:52.:33:56.

showing great result to get back in the top six.

:33:57.:34:00.

showing great result to get back in the top They created a multitude of

:34:01.:34:06.

chances. When you see the highlights, they certainly deserve

:34:07.:34:10.

that. One thing they have got is goals on their team. When you see

:34:11.:34:15.

some of the chances they created, they were wonderful. They were the

:34:16.:34:23.

better side. At the break they were unlucky not to be in front. You

:34:24.:34:28.

think St Johnstone do not get as much credit as they are due?

:34:29.:34:34.

Possibly, because they are difficult team to play against. When you see

:34:35.:34:39.

them play, see the quality of their kicking, they perhaps do not get the

:34:40.:34:44.

credit of the teams that are ahead of them. We went there with Dundee

:34:45.:34:50.

United some weeks back. They turned us over pretty convincingly. Let us

:34:51.:34:56.

look at the goals from yesterday. Anything that could have been

:34:57.:35:09.

improved on? That was great play from Marie Davidson. This was an

:35:10.:35:26.

excellent goal. Their front players set the tempo of the team and we

:35:27.:35:31.

found that when we went up there. They worked tremendously hard. That

:35:32.:35:38.

is the starting point of the team. Stevie May was impressive. Will

:35:39.:35:45.

January be a tough month for St Johnstone fans? You would think so.

:35:46.:35:55.

When you have a man playing like this 16 goals, or something like

:35:56.:36:02.

that, he will attract attention. Teams like this must sell players to

:36:03.:36:04.

make money and it would be very difficult for them. Finally, do you

:36:05.:36:09.

think St Mirren could get sucked into the fight for escaping from the

:36:10.:36:16.

play-off at the bottom? When you get to this stage of the season, the

:36:17.:36:22.

league is taking shape. There will be changes all over the place. When

:36:23.:36:27.

you look at St Mirren and teams like Partick Thistle, they will be the

:36:28.:36:33.

teams that are in the mix. St Mirren have the players to get themselves

:36:34.:36:40.

out of difficulty. I think it would be disrespectful to all the other

:36:41.:36:43.

teams to highlight just one team right now. Freddie nights in

:36:44.:36:50.

Aberdeen is usually a lively experience and it was no different

:36:51.:36:54.

last Friday and Hebburn Ian were in town. A healthy crowd of 13,000

:36:55.:37:02.

attended. The faithful fans have faith in the manager and the team.

:37:03.:37:18.

Alan Tate makes his debut. Terry Butcher has brought some continuity.

:37:19.:37:24.

This is the same team that tree with Dundee United last Sunday. -- that

:37:25.:37:33.

true. Friday night football at Pittodrie. Not the surest touches

:37:34.:37:50.

from Tate. The referee says that is not a penalty. But was the contact?

:37:51.:38:09.

-- was there? That is a handball! Craig Thomson leaves the scene. He

:38:10.:38:22.

refuses to point to the spot. The ball brushed off the arm of Michael

:38:23.:38:26.

Nelson. No joy for the Aberdeen manager. Mark Reynolds with the

:38:27.:38:38.

header and it is tapped away. Pressure on the goal of Hibernian.

:38:39.:38:58.

That is dangerous. That could well have been punished. He must have

:38:59.:39:09.

been surprised it came his way. That skips away from Stevenson. That is

:39:10.:39:18.

lovely play. And now the chance to deliver. McGinn! So often in his

:39:19.:39:28.

time with Aberdeen he has hit the target but not this time. That

:39:29.:39:42.

header slipped wide. Midland. -- McGinn. What a strike! 86 minutes

:39:43.:40:00.

into the game. Another late winner for Aberdeen and they had done it at

:40:01.:40:07.

Tannadice. This could complete an amazing hat-trick. Tim Williams can

:40:08.:40:19.

only stand and watch. It is 1-0 Aberdeen. It was no more than we

:40:20.:40:29.

deserved. It was a tight and competitive match. We are

:40:30.:40:37.

disappointed. I thought we would maybe have gotten a draw. But it is

:40:38.:40:42.

one of those things. We must take it on the chin and bounce back. A

:40:43.:40:48.

fantastic strike from flood. We will look at it again in a moment. Should

:40:49.:40:52.

there have been more goals from the penalty spot?

:40:53.:40:55.

there have been more goals from the When you see the two instances just

:40:56.:41:01.

there. They are both great opportunities for a penalty. This

:41:02.:41:06.

one, looking out of, not quite sure there are. Was he touched? Was he

:41:07.:41:17.

not? That should have been a penalty. When you see it, Mark

:41:18.:41:25.

Reynolds is expecting someone to come and take it. You will be

:41:26.:41:33.

sticking up for Nelson here? I would not say so. He is fortunate to get

:41:34.:41:41.

away with that. That is an incredible decision, even when you

:41:42.:41:44.

are watching it. That has penalty with all over it. Absolutely. It was

:41:45.:41:49.

a fantastic strike so let's look at it again. Would you know he could do

:41:50.:41:56.

this? Could the defence had done anything about it? They had done

:41:57.:41:59.

remarkably well just to reach the goal. He has been a tremendous

:42:00.:42:11.

player at Aberdeen. This man has been wonderful this year. Another

:42:12.:42:15.

decisive goal for Aberdeen and they have done this in previous games.

:42:16.:42:22.

They keep going. That is the belief and the wicket -- the work ethic.

:42:23.:42:33.

They are bringing some great results. They had great drive and

:42:34.:42:42.

commitment to go right to the end. It is no coincidence. Briefly, it is

:42:43.:42:48.

disappointing for Hebburn Ian to lose that much. Do you think they

:42:49.:42:53.

will get into the top six? I would think so. I would think Terry

:42:54.:42:57.

Butcher has installed a good game plan. It is further they can get

:42:58.:43:06.

some players in. A few players have been told they can look for other

:43:07.:43:09.

clubs and that suggests he is looking to bring some of his own

:43:10.:43:15.

players. I think when a new manager comes in and he has fresh ideas and

:43:16.:43:18.

will be looking to bring in new faces. With Burnley and you can see

:43:19.:43:24.

that Terry Butcher has having a great effect on the team. They are

:43:25.:43:27.

going more directly than they did previously. There will be hard to

:43:28.:43:33.

play against. Who will finish higher the season? Motherwell or Aberdeen?

:43:34.:43:40.

Aberdeen certainly have a bigger budget and a bigger squad. We are

:43:41.:43:45.

doing all right. I will keep the pressure on Aberdeen! Thank you both

:43:46.:43:48.

very much. A quick look at the Premiership table. Celtic are way in

:43:49.:43:55.

sunnier climes and Aberdeen have momentarily reduced the lead at the

:43:56.:44:03.

top. At the bottom it is getting interesting.

:44:04.:44:13.

That is all for now. We will be back next week for more of the same.

:44:14.:44:25.

Motherwell continued the charge. From all of us here, good night.

:44:26.:44:32.
