Livingston boss thinks that Aberdeen is his hardest match since he got the job.
, who has won ten games and draw two asLivingston's
boss, thinks that their double-header against Aberdeen is his biggest test since he joined the club.
“A massive game,”
Martindale told LFC Live.
“I think this is probably going to be the toughest test to date. Aberdeen home and away is going to be really, really tough.
“And I know we have had Celtic in this run of games but, let’s be honest, we played at Parkhead against a disadvantaged Celtic team and here, the Celtic players that came back in the team were probably a wee bit disadvantaged as they’d not trained properly for 10 days.
“So I do think this is going to be our biggest test.
“But I said to the boys before Wednesday’s game that three points doesn’t secure top six, but it goes a long way to getting top six because it opens up that wee gap.
“So whether you finish sixth, fifth, fourth, third or whatever, I think it opens up a big enough gap to make sure we stay in the top six.”
And about their position in the table he added:
“Everything is within our hands now, We are going to have tough games, we are going to lose games of football.
“Obviously I am delighted the run we are on and I’m going to keep pushing to try and stay on this run but common sense tells you you are going to lose games of football.
“But I think that result kicks us on a wee bit and more or less, more or less, secures top six.
“But I will use the same line on Saturday just to keep them on their toes…”
