Following Saturday’s 0-0 home draw with Cove Rangers, Mo started preparing for three weekends in a row on the road.

This weekend they’ll travel to Alloa before making the journey to Falkirk and then Kelty Hearts in the Scottish Cup.

Three tough games are on the horizon, but no opponent will particularly fancy facing Stewart Petrie’s side either who are just two point off the top of League One.

Speaking to the club’s media channel after the Cove game, Campbell said: “If you look at how tight the league is, there’s one point between four at the top.

"Against Alloa, we didn’t do as well as we should have done earlier in the season and we let them have a two goal advantage going into half-time.

"We’ll try and rectify that and we always know Falkirk will be difficult.

"Everyone knows how strong Kelty Hearts are with the money they invest so it’s not the best cup tie.

"But we’re looking forward to getting away and then hopefully coming back in the next round of the cup and a minimum of four points better off.”

Campbell admitted Saturday's game suffered due to the weather conditions, but believes his side should have coped better.

He added: “We were pleased with the players, particularly in the second half.

"If you look across the number of chances we probably had the better of them."
