Hamilton v St Mirren 22/9/18

Recommended Posts

This game can't come quick enough after last night's performance and result.

Hamilton play Livie today, personally I'd prefer a draw, don't want either getting 3 points at this stage.

If we play like we did last night, especially the first half, we can win this and really start to get away from the bottom of the league.

Certainly more confident going into this game than we were a week ago.

Agree, would love to see us win but would be happy if we drew with Accies, simply as it means they are not further ahead of us. Another week working on tactics and fitness and we should be good.

Happy to take it one game at a time at the moment and build confidence of the players. Last nights performance certainly showed the players are up for it.

Disagree, we need to go for three points here.

Getting points on the board against Dundee and Hamilton is going to be vital, particularly at this stage of the season when they look there for the taking. Who knows what a change of manager and transfer window will bring later in the season.

I don’t think he meant not to go and try to win the game. Perhaps just that a draw, on the road, against a perceived relegation rival would be a decent result and continue our revival under OK.

Last night we had an opportunity to play against the best Scotland has to offer and next week we play one of the Great Survivors in the Scottish Premiership.  Not on the TV so this is about being there to support the team.  Tough match in prospect.  We can expect a tough match against a well drilled side who will be aiming to keep things tight.  It's obvious that a win for Saints would be ideal but a draw would be acceptable but either will be achieved only if we put in a similar performance to the one against Celtic.

Add into the equation a dreadful surface and the fact that our Anton isn't up to speed. This is a snake, ( © Sutton), after the ladder of the performance v Celtic.

Good points St L.  Dislike that pitch.  But - Bring it on. Pay at the gate so it looks like getting there early makes sense.

Looking for the same attitude as last Friday night.

A point would be OK and keep us above Accies - three would be much, much better! 

 

COYS!

Aye, 3 would give us a nice 4 point gap over Hamilton and possibly 7 over Dundee plus possibly leapfrogging Motherwell. 

Lots of "possibly's" but got to look on the bright side, don't we?

Oran resisted the big Dane v Tic, again I think that's right call in a completely different game. Accies had 4 shots on target in 5 games............... it wont be an easy game but I would be delighted with an ugly 1-0 win

Did you just make that up or is there a source? 

BBC stats state more.

Well they had 4 before Livi game as stated by them in Sportsound, and then had 0 going by the stats on the BBC coverage of the game, so therefore 4=0 = 4. If they know have 7 , then that's great. Point being, they are a bit shot shy :wink:

Well CG.  Don't know whether to feel envious or feel sorry for you.  No wait - Sunshine and Warmth plus a cool drink. Tough one for me.

Madsen was injured for Friday, thats why we went with no striker.

Has this new-found enthusiasm persuaded you to attend the game? 

Should be a hum dinger
