Devine hoping to end on high

Daniel Devine is hoping to end the season on a high by claiming the team’s first post-split victory by defeating Aberdeen at Firhill.

The defender is hoping to put the Celtic result out of his mind by taking the first points from the Dons this season

Speaking to, Devine said: “It is important we end the season on a high. We are disappointed so far not to have got a win after the split. We wanted to be in the top six to test ourselves against the top teams and Sunday is another chance to do that.

“We are bitterly disappointed after the Celtic result and performance. They are a top class team, everyone knows that but we are disappointed in ourselves and the way we performed and we know we have to do much better.”

Devine admits the team has possibly deserved more from the matches this season with a number of very close games so far this term.

“It would be nice to take something from Aberdeen, we’ve played quite well against them this season and every game has been close but we’ve not managed to take anything from them. We have probably deserved more than we’ve been able to take so far so hopefully we can do that on Sunday.”

Devine arrived in the summer from Inverness and has enjoyed his first season at the club.

“I’ve really enjoyed my first season at the club. It was a tough start for everyone but once the boys managed to gel we picked up and managed to get ourselves into the top six. It’s been a great achievement for the club and I’m glad to have been part of that.”

With the match being the last of the season Danny knows the hard work continues even after the game

“Now it’s a case of getting ourselves ready for next season, working hard through the summer and going again next season and trying to better this season.”

Remember, tomorrow’s match is a 12:30 kick off!
