Season 2020’21: Game 28: Hamilton (H)

Recommended Posts

I am aware that regardless of being on a semi good run we can lose any one particular game, we still have our vulnerabilities, but come on we are due this one. Give us the points.

A win puts us 11 points ahead of them, albeit they've got a game in hand. Be a huge step towards removing the possibility of automatic relegation, slight as that looks right now.

We need to get right at them from the start and take our chances when they come,let's not get dragged into another shitfest with them where it's 0-0 with ten minutes left as we know what will happen.

Been a while since we utterly destroyed them. 

Be good to do it on Saturday.

The players should enjoy being back on grass. 

Lets do this.

With St Mirren away to Pittodrie and Dundee Utd and St Johnstone having difficult games, if we are to have any chance of sneaking into the top six then three points is a must on Saturday.

 

3-1 to us.

In reality it is probably hyperbole to call this a "must win" game. I also admire the optimism of those asking up a win as opening up our chances of somehow making the top six. As I see it we are still on the cusp of a relegation battle and that has to be our main concern. The good news is that we are on our good run at present with some mproved performances and results. Keeping it going for another couple of weeks would be most beneficial  A result in this fixture will go a long way to securing our future in the division. Let's hope we can achieve that.

Hamilton are such a dreadful bunch of scrapers. They will be up for it and have recently proved they are capable of getting decent results against anyone. I would love three points, but a draw would not be the end of the world.

Whilst I dont disagree with any of that, it would be nice for the players to see a carrot every now and again, instead of just a stick! :P

If we get 9 points from the games against Killie/Hamilton/StJonhstone/St Mirren we'll have done brillianty.  Another 6 points from the next 3 games please and we'll be pushing towards the right side of the table

Just keen to get as much daylight between ourselves and 11th as possible and then see where that takes us.

The players owe us for the last shocker v Accies also.

The daylight is the key. Once that gap is large enough and the team can think about looking up the table, the change in mentality can be huge.

I'd love to see us cuff Accies, but at this stage, I'll take 3 points any which way.

Absolutely agree. Much as I'd love to turn this mob over by 3 or 4 I'd happily settle for a repeat of the shitfest at Kilmarnock and another 3 points.

I would want the ball tangled in the back of the net just in case John Beaton is the ref.

One things for sure, Tony Watt had better look out his extra reinforced shin pads

Just Tony Watt?

As usual, Accies will be fired up for this and we won't be able to match them physically, so we need to box clever; wise up, get streetwise. We need to try to play football and if we're really up against it, facing ranks of defenders holding onto a single goal lead, we have the option of bringing on a 6-5 striker and firing high balls to him. No point in firing high balls to Chris Long etc.

The first goal will be important and there's no reason why we shouldn't score it.  This time round we have a better keeper and a steadier team.

Well everyone really,  but I think Rice will have identified Tony as our main threat so will single him out for some "extra special" attention but as GA says play our own game and let the opposition worry about us.

Accies supporting mate reckons they're not too hot at high balls into the penalty area.

County game off tomorrow and Killie playing Rangers so 3 points could open up a gap between us and the bottom 3. Would ratchet the pressure up a wee bit more on those 3, we need to do the business first right enough.

I would take any type of win tomorrow, but I would be relatively satisfied if we handed out a scudding to the money launderers.

Ditto...let’s get this lot and their plastic pitch relegated ...unfortunately we have gave them 40% of their victories this season FFS  !!!
