  • Ledley: We're aiming for three Paradise points

    Ledley: We're aiming for three Paradise points

    By: Mark Henderson on 14 Dec, 2012 09:33

  • HAVING enjoyed an impressive SPL win over Kilmarnock at Rugby PArk last weekend, and followed that up with a 1-0 Scottish Cup victory at Arbroath, Celtic return home this weekend when they will play host to St Mirren.
     
    And Joe Ledley, who missed the midweek cup clash, believes it´s important for the team to build up a winning domestic run. The Welsh midfielder is an admirer of St Mirren´s style of play, but knows that it´s up to Celtic to take the game to their opponents.

    "Danny Lennon has done a good job there," Ledley said. "They play football the right way, and that´s what you need to do these days. You see teams doing it in English leagues and people doing it up here as well.

    "We have had some fantastic results against them, though, and last weekend at Kilmarnock, it was one of the best games we have played and hopefully our form can continue against them."

    And the champions will need no reminding that victory is not a forgone conclusion at home, having suffered some disappointing domestic results in Paradise this season – with the rigours of the Champions League taking their toll.

    "It has been difficult at times as we get frustrated with ourselves," said Ledley. "Other teams sit back while we try to attack and break them down and sometimes they have caught us on the counter-attack.

    "But we just need to be patient and we will have the fans behind us. We need to go out on attack and when that first one goes in hopefully we can continue scoring and get some more."
