Season 2020’21: Game 5 Hamilton Accies (H)

Recommended Posts

I think I’d start with same 11 as last week. If we are scoreless after first half I’d switch it to play Watt and and Long as a front 2 and give Lang the freedom to move wherever

If they play like they did against Hibs and the forward line get act together we will pump them.O Hara,Turnbull and Campbell midfield is class has a bit of everything having watched the frontline more so in the middle Long is at the back of the queue.White and Watt for me maybe even give Lang a go.

On paper we are the better team. However, at the simplest,  on the day it'll boil down to 2 things; can we remain solid at the back with no mistakes and can we create chances and actually put the ball in the net "legally".  I'm quite happy for Accies to dominate the game as long as we score 1 more goal than they do. Is that too much to ask for?

I am always one to throw caution to the wind and not tempt fate. 

But cmon Dave. We dominated Hibs at Easter Rd. Dominated possession in every game so far. 

There is no chance Accies will dominate the game. They may score and we may miss a whole load of chances but no way they will dominate this game.

It really is going to be about finally putting away our chances. On our own pitch we really should yet again have most of the possession, we just need to show more confidence in the final third.

I know Ian. I didn’t express myself very well. In short I don’t care how we win so long as we do. I expect us to dominate possession but just hope that we stay watertight at the back and put away our chances.

Had initially thought we’d go with an unchanged lineup, but have a sneaky suspicion Watt may start over White. We may need our better footballers on the park to counteract the icki-accie style football that we’re all accustomed to.

So we have had 66% possession and 5 times as many shots at goal - sound familiar. Like every game so far this season. We need to get our act together in final 3rd.

like Groundhog Day.....

Need a striker,  early days but big White not the answer.  

Service to him has been very poor. Accies off the ball work rate all over the pitch has been very impressive and they're giving us little space.

Bevis playing short passes to the man beside him has made a difference today - at least to my stress levels.
