Europa League Campaign 2020-2021

It won't be easy but we should have enough to progress. Coleraine are part time and will be a bit ring rusty, albeit that they've played some friendlies. They'll come flying out of the traps and if we weather that we should grow stronger as the game goes on.

Wearing my sensible head this should be straight forward, equivalent to the early League Cup stages in recent years, with my Motherwell head on, I was at Edinburgh City and Stranraer.

Every chance it will be an Albion Rovers moment

I think comparisons to top end of Scottish Championship are off the mark. Dundee, Caley etc would comfortably beat this mob.

 

As long as we are focused and professional about it, we should have no issues at all.

 

Edit - out of curiosity, what's the worst cup result we've had under Robbo? I can't seem to remember many upsets at all.

Ross County, when they were in the Championship.

And even at that, that was a high flying Ross county team, I think the most disappointing aspect was that the youngsters gave them a run for there money a few months previous.

Drawing and then losing to Stranraer on penalties would be a candidate as well the already mentioned Ross County loss.  Clyde was in the balance too where we were 1-0 down and had been piss poor but somehow managed to come out with what looked like a convincing 3-1 win.

Enough warning signs not to be complacent.

Still have nightmares about those 2 games.

My view is if you can beat Maribor away, then you can beat us at home. 

Doesn't mean we are doomed to defeat but we cannot afford to be complacent especially since our general level of performance hasn't been good over an extended period of time. 

We might have scored 5 against Glentoran but we are still miles off from being consistent scorers so we need to make sure we are more secure at the back than we were in the last EL match.

Conceding once could cause us a lot of problems.

Must win game so that we can afford to give the squad MFC masks, not the mix and match they were wearing tonight, embarrassing really.

I'm watching via the BBC Sport app.

If you've got a smart TV or Virgin Media that will work for you.
