WES FODERINGHAM says the squad would have loved to have won the title on Saturday but that the only silver lining is that they have the chance to put it right with a win on Tuesday to secure the Championship title.
The Gers were disappointed with the draw away to Raith Rovers and speaking after the game yesterday, the English goalkeeper said that with the Gers and Hibs both only drawing, it’s set up for a grandstand finish at Ibrox on Tuesday.
He said: “It’s probably better for the fans if we win it at home and I’m sure they would have liked us to have won it today, but it wasn’t meant to be.
“It’s set up for a good night on Tuesday for us to put on a good performance and get the three points to let us clinch it in front of our own fans.”
It was three minutes into injury time that Ray McKinnon’s Raith Rovers drew level in the match and Foderingham says that the team were disappointed to have conceded from a set piece in the way that they did.
He continued: “It’s difficult and that’s been the case a lot this season where fans try to get the ball into the box and try to cause us problems and set pieces are where teams are probably most likely to score.
“I feel that on a few instances we could have been better in there, but we’ll have a look at it and work hard in training and try to be better for it.”
“We are disappointed. To go a goal down and then to get back into the game and into a winning position only to throw it away at the end like that is disappointing.
“We’ll put it behind us and we’ll get to training to work hard tomorrow and Monday so we are raring to go on Tuesday night.”
Mark Warburton’s men are back in action on Tuesday night and you can be there to back the team as they look for the win that will secure the Championship title.
