"We have nine league games left and we’re sitting seventh,” Devine said. “We’re only two points off fourth so that’s a good account so far. Hopefully we’ll be able to go on abother wee run.

"We’ve got a couple of long term injuries. We had another couple of boys missing for our last game – Drew Murray had an injury and Johnny Cookman had a close contact for Covid – but every squad is going to have these issues.”
