    Midfield

    Newall, Doyle-Hayes and Campbell is bottom 6/Championship midfield. We are going to struggle until that is sorted.
    Need the near perma-injured Magennis to get fit.
    And still having to rely on McGregor is a disgrace.

    Disagree - JDH and Newell are very decent players.

    Conceding pathetic goals and not taking our chances is killing us.

    They're both good players! Newell especially was good tonight, first half at least. And it was only three days ago folk were raving about how good Campbell played.

    Unfortunately other than Magennis our other options in the middle aren't great and with 73 games coming up in the next month I do worry a bit.

    JDH and Newell played well tonight, Campbell was very quiet.

    It's not the centre midfielders fault that the centre backs struggled with a dodgy cross and that nisbet couldn't finish any of his three clear cut chances.

    What can we do to fix it now?

    You swore blind on here Gogic was the fix for all our midfield problems 18 months ago. He cant get near the team ahead of those guys. Newall and Doyle Hayes are quality players.

    They were dominating the midfield until that ridiculous goal.

    There was nothing wrong with that midfield on Sunday.
    Itís a bloody attitude problem and a possibly a managerial problem as well.
    We said it after the semi , Rangers let you play and it suited us on Sunday. Expecting the same formation to do the same tonight is wishful thinking.
    This game was all about grafting away on a driech winters night and grinding out a result and too many of our squad are just not up for that.

    5 league defeats on the skip suggests that they are not coping. If centre mid isnít right then everything falls down. Since Magennis dropped out again our form has dropped of a cliff.
    Gogic done well for us last season, this season heís been poor. If he canít produce now then we need to move him on.

    Midfield was fine today. If we take our chances we are 3 up at HT. just like Sunday.

    It was working for the most of the game though - on another night we would have easily scored 3 or 4 and put the game to bed before their fluke goal.

    Nisbets three clear cut chances, Hanlon off the post, Boyle's volley, and the penalty shout on Hanlon could all easily have led to goals on another night.

    Sorry but that last part is just nonsense.

    We never lost today because a lack of grafters or because itís cold and winter.

    We dominated the first half and missed 3 decent chances - Nisbet x 2 and Hanlon. Second half Nisbet missed another couple of chances.

    We concede a shocking, absolute nothing of a goal and lost our head after that.

    It was a lot of things but itís not because theyíre not grafters

    Newell is a terrific player imo. A massive upgrade on Dylsn. JDH is a very good player also. Those two with MacGennis could be awesome with a strong defence and attack.

    The lack of options in the squad is the real problem, Ross has no one to rotate the squad with and the players he does have he obviously doesn't trust. We need at least anothe 4-5 signings in January, Mueller is an attacker and Tait is still young and untried.

    Newell is an average player as is JDH.
    Folk on here are deluded calling them quality players etc.

    I seen Campbell get plaudits after the game on Sunday but personally didnít see him do much. He chased & hurried the rangers midfield but in a game like tonight against ďinferiorĒ opposition Iím not quite sure the lad has the quality we require

    Heís obviously still quite raw though so every chance he will improve but when youíre needing points on the board itís a risk having to throw him in

    Newell is a decent player though.

    Boyle aside, our whole team is championship at best. Boyle will be sold in January and not replaced.

    were in a bad way.

    I mentioned this before the game.

    Big different being the advanced midfielder in a game against lesser opposition or in a game we should win. Similar to Magennis heís not a Scot Allan type who will thread balls behind defenders.

    But heís good at running in behind, looking after the ball and not giving the opposition a second.

    I actually thought he done well again tonight without standing out. He looked after the ball really well and had a couple of nice touches and passes. There was one in the second half over next to Cadden where he skinned the boy and played a nice reverse pass.

    Contrary to Allan who couldnít get the ball under control when he came on and almost lost a goal.

    I 100% think itís a position we need to strengthen though. Getting McGrath in the summer would have been fantastic business.

    Where to start with that pish. So youíre saying the team that finished 3rd last season in the top flight, without boyle, are a championship team at best???

    He wonít be sold in January imo & it would be hard to blame us for not replacing him because heís that good a player

    He did a job on Sunday in defending further up the park.

    Different game tonight. I though Allan should have been on earlier (at least) instead of a reactive sub when we were chasing the game.

    Nonsense. We play in SPFL, at our level they are quality

    Our problem was primarily the forward line not taking chances. Campbell was pushed up higher in the second half and started to influence more, drawing a few fouls in particular. Allan should have come on for one of our more defensive mids, not the one trying to support the striker.
