Sean energised for Easter Road return

Friday, 24th Feb 2017

"It is one of our biggest games of the season - Hibs at Easter Road - I am thoroughly looking forward to going back there.

Sean Murdoch is optimistic going into Saturday`s Championship match away to Hibernian. He told the website:-

"I think our recent form has been pretty good. The only disappointment was the Falkirk game but in general we have been consistent and good.

"We have not taken any points off Hibs yet but that is because they are a good team. You can see that they have quality throughout their team even on the bench. We are a good team as well and we are definitely going there full of confidence.

"I am sure that it will be a good game and we are definitely hoping to get something from them."

The Pars will be hoping that they get over the Hamilton hangover that the popular remedy, Irn Bru only made things worse rather than better. The semi finals of the Irn Bru Cup left the Pars without a fixture last Saturday in which to bounce back. Sean described how that had felt for him:-

"On a personal level it took me a few days to get over being absolutely gutted. We are really really disappointed, obviously the chance of playing against Rangers at Ibrox and being on TV, the club could have made a lot of money. For me and all the boys we were absolutely devastated to go out on penalties.

"For some reason penalties are our Achilles heel. I don`t know what is going on but penalties have cost us a lot this season.

"There is no point on dwelling on it, we will just have to go and try and rectify it. When we get a penalty next time, we have to make sure that we are clinical."

Sean feels that the enforced break after the replay at Hamilton will reenergise the players:-

"The few days away from the club makes you hungry again. When the boys came back the training has been good and we are looking forward to our next game. Obviously it is one of our biggest games of the season - Hibs at Easter Road - I am thoroughly looking forward to going back there.

The 30 year old keeper who spent almost two seasons at Easter Road between October 2012 and the end of the following season, ended:-

"I still know a lot of people who are still there, we will go there full of confidence and hopefully we can get a result."
