Oliver: We're on right track
ROB Roy boss Mick Oliver has praised his players for continuing their charge up the table with their fourth consecutive league victory on Saturday.
Oliver was delighted with his team's 2-1 victory over Vale of Clyde at Adamslie Park - a win that takes Rabs to the fringes of the promotion race.
And they will be looking to continue their excellent run at home to Glasgow Perthshire on Saturday.
Oliver said: "It was a good victory, and we were never in danger of not winning, although we should have won by a bigger margin.
"We played well despite the awful weather, and I was disappointed we conceded a goal and were not able to keep another clean sheet.
"But my players deserve a lot of credit for keeping calm in the face of disgraceful behaviour from the opposition.
"It is not the first time this season that a team have tried to intimidate us, and it is very annoying that we have to face that, but we did well to maintain our composure and discipline.
"We are five games unbeaten in the league and the team is playing with a lot more confidence, and proving very difficult to beat.
"Although we may be struggling to finish teams off, we are definitely heading in the right direction."
Oliver is confident Rabs can beat Perthshire on Saturday, but has warned his players against complacency.
He said: "If we play to our strengths and carry on our recent form we should win the match, but we can not take that for granted and will have to work hard from the kick-off.
"If we can get the three points, we will really let the teams above us know that we are breathing down their necks."
He added: "There is still a long way to go in the season, but we now have a chance of putting pressure on the sides at the top of the table."
