We started new campaign very good. We reached the Champions League Group stage and earned very needed amount of money thanks to it. After the first Scottish Premier League title in the previous season we have only one goal for the next season – retain the league title!
And we started the new league season in the best way with the huge 4-1 win against Celtic thanks to a four goals by Darren O’Brien. Spartans FC defeated St. Mirren and Aberdeen after that but only tied with Ross Country. First defeat of the season we have seen in the struggle against Motherwell and we lost also with Kilmarnock.
Until the end of the calendar year, we played some very good matches. For example, against Hearts (3-1), against Celtic (3-1) or against Rangers (3-1). December was very hard, we played seven matches, including six in the league and in five of them we won.
After nineteen matches we are first in the table thanks to 14 victories, three draws and two defeats. We have 45 poinst and we are eight poinst ahead of Celtic. They have on match in hand. Graham Paterson has nine assists, Darren O’Brien has 13 goals. The most important thing is that our game has a very good level and our 4-4-2 formation works great.
