Thistle assistant gaffer Martin Crawford is urging the town to come out and back the side this Saturday as they face old foes Irvine Meadow.

With an exciting brand of flowing football and silky goals, Crawford believes the team can go on to great things this season, and believes that the style of football is pleasing to the eye, with attracting fast flowing play.

It is a 2pm kick-off at Barrfields Park.

Thistle have not beaten basement boys Meadow at home in the league in 20 years, but are in top form having scored nine goals in the last two games, with one conceded.

Crawford said: "The first thing I said when I became assistant manager a year ago was that we wanted to build a team that Largs could be proud of, and I think we are beginning to show what we are really capable of.

"We want supporters to come along and have pride in it, as the player are giving every single ounce of energy, and we will get there, we have some very good players in the squad."

"It is still in the sausage machine that one!" said Crawford, "we are constantly looking at fine-tuning the team. 

"Looking at the results over the last few weeks, it makes for interesting reading.

"It is a different landscape this season and the best team will win and we will be well prepared.

"We have been focussing on finishing at training as we were well aware that was an area we needed to improve upon.

"We will treat Saturday's game against Meadow like any other game and do a professional job."

Martin Crawford said: "Things are starting to come together, but we are still not where we need to be. 

"There was some really good football from our players, and some of the passes, moves and finishes were brilliant. We are delighted in that respect.

"We work on the movement and the quick 1-2 passing and they executed it perfectly.

"However, we were sloppy in places, and yes, 5-0 looks like we gave them a lesson, but another team might have undone us.

"We have got to set high standards, and I know there is much more to come from this side.

"We know we have plenty of firepower going forward but we want to make sure we are really unbeatable.

"Martin Orr gets forward up and down that wing and is a fit as a butcher's dog and goes box to box.

"Laurie McMaster did really well and got forward and got a goal from full-back position.

"Ben Black on the left, Kevin Struthers on the right, and Scott Adam down the middle is a real handful for any opposition.

"Kevin is really relishing it. He came back to Largs last season after leaving for Winton, and it wasn't an easy period for him but we knew he would be up for a new challenge.

"He is totally honest and you always know where you stand with him.

"Kevin is a real football man, as are the rest of the players, and I have huge respect for him."

 "He gives 150% and deserves the credit he is getting."

"We were astounded about Ben Black - the keeper got him a real sore one at Petershill and the early impression was that he was going to be out with ligament damage, and signalled he couldn't go on.

"He was able to return to training in midweek and made a great impact in the Renfrew match.

Regarding the red card for midfielder Mark Millar, Crawford said: "We spoke to the referee afterwards and he said it gave it for the tackle and not the stramash afterwards. It was awarded for serious foul play. It looks like Mark will be suspended for perhaps one game which is a shame as he is a massive player for us.

"We needed a midfielder who could control things, calm it down when need be, and he is pivotal for us.

However, Crawford was pleased with the attitude of the ten men at 3-0 after Millar went off and indeed went on to dominate and add another two goals.

He said: "A red card can upset players and the adrenaline pumps in the other team. If you are not on your mettle, another team can overrun you but our side showed great fighting spirit."

The Thistle assistant gaffer also praised the defence, and said: "The backline deserve a lot of praise, Nicky Jamieson and Craig were dominant, and the wing backs were making things happen."
