Uddingston captain Bryan Clarke said: “For the first two league games of the season we were probably a little bit cold and since then we’ve just gradually improved and we’ve got ourselves into a really good position.

"I think we’ve given ourselves a real opportunity. In the next four weeks we play three of the teams that are around us. We’re feeling good about things and not feeling any pressure.”
