It was great to see Odin Holm return to action for the first time in two months yesterday. Hopefully the player has now fully recovered from illness and can look forward to a period of development similar to that which Paulo Bernardo has enjoyed since last month.
With a run of starts under his belt, Paulo is now motoring. Only St Mirren of our last four opponents have stopped him scoring, although he recorded two assists in that game. There is more to come from him and it is the manager’s job to ensure he continues to develop. That task will become more interesting when Reo Hatate returns from the Asian Cup.
Odin got his chance yesterday because Callum McGregor was rested (and it was Buckie Thistle). Brendan needs to find opportunities to give the player game time between now and the end of the season. There is no point buying players and allowing them to wither in the stands.
