another couple wins and mcinnes will be back in business
Considering all the injuries we have endured this season we are doing well to be sitting 1 point behind 3rd and 4 points ahead of 5th. Thats a 3-0 win against both Motherwell and Killie who are most likely our main competitors for third this season.
If the majority of players were available we would have never lost 5-0 to The Rangers (look at the makeshift side that day) and would have beaten Hearts in the cup.
Last season was frustrating because we had a similar injury crisis. Lewis, McKenna, Wilson, GMS, Logan, Devlin, Gleeson, the fiasco with Forrester, McGinn, McLennan, Ross, Hoban out for large parts of the season - it allowed Ferguson, McLennan and Campbell to get first team action but it also resulted in the signing of Greg Halford. I'd argue we'd have finished third and pushed The Rangers for 2nd had we had more players available.
Look at Hearts this season. They have been plagued with injuries. Thats the real reason they are bottom of the table otherwise they'd be up there challenging ourselves for third and levein would still be in a job.
