TOP GUNNERS; Airdrieonians Fordyce believes Diamonds can fire up title bid again.

Byline: MARK PIRIE

Airdrie defender Callum Fordyce reckons the Diamonds have just four games to prove their League One title bottle.

The New Broomfield outfit have fallen seven points behind league leaders Raith as they gear up to face Lanarkshire rivals Clyde this weekend.

Following their slip-ups in recent weeks, Fordyce believes the next four games are crucial if they are to overtake Falkirk and Rovers.

However, he says the dressing room still have faith they can go top again in the final quarter of the season.

"Our focus now is to come back from this wee blip we have had," he told the Advertiser.

"We went on a wee run to get ourselves to the top of the table again so we're confident of being able to do that again.

"That was an incredible run; yes we are off the top a bit now but everybody is confident going into this next run of games.

"It's now about getting on a run together but we still believe we can go on and win the league. It's all about momentum at this stage of the season.

"There have been no easy games this term. You look at Stranraer who are bottom - but even they have had an unbeaten run.

"In every league season you have your low points and hopefully ours can be put behind us now.

"There is a lot of football still to be played and the objective still is to go on and win the league.

"I would say we are still in a good position, and the run of form we were on before we went top of the league was worse than this one.

"At that point a lot of things were said.

"We know things need to change again and we have the belief that things can snowball again.

"We don't want to look too far ahead, just focus on the next game.

" In the Clyde game the last time they beat us 3-1, but for 60 minutes we were the much better team. We missed a good few chances but they are a well-organised team."

He added: "Things can change very quickly in football. I would say our next four games are massive and we'll know where we are after that."
