Playmaker Paul McGowan is hoping the winter break won’t bring a halt to St Mirren’s impressive run of form.
The midfield maestro made a welcome return to the Saints team last month, helping them to some fine results over the festive period.
Wins against Motherwell and Dundee United, together with draws against Inverness Caley Thistle and Kilmarnock, saw the Buddies bag eight points out of 12 from the Christmas and New Year fixtures.
However, there have been no SPL games over the past two weekends as Scottish football experiences a brief winter shutdown.
And, while many players will have been relishing the chance to head abroad to sunnier climes and recharge their batteries, McGowan would have been happier if the games had kept coming thick and fast.
The former Celtic starlet, who has made a good recovery from surgery to heal a troublesome shoulder injury, told Express Sports: “As far as I’m concerned, to have the winter break is disappointing.
“Some of the boys are glad of the break but we have been on a bit of a run and we didn’t want that to end.”
