Paul Coutts says a positive result on Sunday would be for the supporters, who have been 'terrific' in the eyes of the Scotsman.
Looking ahead to the weekend's clash, Coutts said: "It'll be great and something we've looked forward to since last season.
"We spoke about these games coming around if you get promoted to the Championship and we drove on and ensured we were back amongst it this season.
"We won the league and needed to carry on the momentum which we have done and these games are now the ones we can look forward to."
The midfielder talisman added: "With the skipper and manager being local lads and fans of the club, then if we ever needed a reminder of how big a game this is then we would get one, but we know.
"The manager is our leader and especially on Sunday we are going to need everything we have to help us overcome a very good side and a hostile atmosphere.
"Every game is a big one for us, we want to win every week, but this one just has that extra bit on it.
"The fans have been terrific with us, they have suffered a bit but last season we went someway to repaying them and I'm sure come Sunday they will be buzzing."
