Sean Dickson looks around the Bayview dressing room and sees the quality needed to ensure the club reaches the play-offs.

The midfielder, whose first half winner sealed a crucial three points at the weekend, says he has absolute faith in himself and those around him not to let go of fourth place.

Saturday’s test against the champions elect, Albion Rovers, was passed with flying colours.

The Methil men handled their own pressure on the day of staying in the play-off zone a lot better than the Coatbridge side who could have wrapped up the title at Bayview.

Dickson said: “It’s ours to give away now.

“The boys are looking forward to the run in - what’s the point in playing all season, getting to this stage and not looking forward to it?

“They’re up for every game in that dressing room and we know we’re capable of getting there.

“When you have the quality of the boys we have like Fash (Nathan Austin) and Kevin Smith it will just come naturally.”

With just three games left of the season, it appears now to be a straight battle for fourth between the Fifers and Elgin City.

A third place finish is also not unrealistic.

“A couple of the results went for us and a couple didn’t,” said Dickson.

“No matter what, it was going to be four cup finals for us and that’s one down.

“It’s possible for us to catch Arbroath who are having a sticky patch.

“But our main aim is just to get into the play-offs and keep that fourth place.”

Attention now turns to Saturday’s trip to Annan.

“When we played them the last time they played really well so it’s a tricky one,” said the midfielder

“But we’re looking forward to it.”
