That's what our new manager has given basically the same bunch of players in the last week. Thrilling attacking play, evereyone working hard for one another, both in attack and defence, Even after a lapse in concentration to leave a St K forward unmarked at the far post for their equaliser, we never looked like giving up. Had that happened in the previous regime, the heads would have gone down, and we would then have conceeded another and lost the game.
Davies was constant problem to the opposition defence, Winng headers, holding the ball up, and St J never got the time to make a pass with him up-front. Oakley had a terrific game too, and has a poacher's instinct for a goal (or two!),
Imrie hit too many wayward passes, IMO, and it looked like he was out of touch & pace for the tempo that Accies are now playing.
Lenny Sowah had by far his best game in an Accies shirt, and looked a better defender tonight that ever before. Ziggy, Killa again put in a great shift. Alex Gogic, I thought, could have been MOTM, with his winning tackles and great speed of recovery from attack to defence. Miller's quick feet made a huge difference, when he came on, for a tiring Boyd, who again worked very hard.
There were no failures tonight, and we got what we deserved. On this showing, the squad are more than capable of taking points off other teams. We might, just might, see a tenth place this season. Livvy are only 13 points ahead, and with a couple of six pointers still to come against them and St Mirren, who knows.
Well done, to Brian Rice, for recapturing the teams talent and producing a swashbuckiing performance tonight. Dad's with young boys I met on the way out, were buzzing with the turnaround, and all excited to come back for more of the same from their team. Keep it going!!!
