ST Mirren midfielder Ryan Flynn reckons they owe the fans a performance at Pittodrie.

The Buddies face a trip to Aberdeen today and have shipped eight goals in two previous visits to the Granite City this season.

And the former Falkirk man insists that the fans who always travel in numbers deserve better.

He said: "We owe the manager, the fans, everyone. As I say the first half wasn’t good enough and we were talking earlier and said the fans come up in their numbers to Aberdeen, so we owe them as well.

"We have to make sure we definitely do that.

"We’re three points adrift and games start running out, so we have to make sure we’re getting points on the board.

Flynn believes there’s enough in the squad to stay up, despite the massive changes. 

But he admits it has been hard seeing players leave who he has enjoyed success with. 

He continued: "We've definitely got the belief in there. It’s quite clear there’s been a chance. 

"With the number of players turnover it’s never easy but there can’t be a bedding in period now we’re in February and we’ve got to hit the ground running. The games run out thick and fast and we’ve got to make sure we’re getting points on the board.

“It is difficult, but it has got to happen as quick as possible. Getting results would definitely help and hopefully we can get them. 

"I don’t think anyone could envisage what’s happened, but it’s happened and we need to make sure we put on a good performance today.

"These things do happen we’re well aware of it, but you just take it in isolation. All you can do is focus on the game and make sure we’re ready and prepared to put a performance on and get some points."
