Injury concerns ahead of Accies visit

Manager Paul Hartley has some injury concerns ahead of tonight’s match with Hamilton Accies. Craig Wighton and Michael Duffy will both miss out while Paul McGowan is doubtful.

The manager said of this team news ahead of the match, “We have picked up a few knocks this week. Paul McGowan has been struggling with a bug and picked a little knock up on Thursday in training. Wighton is struggling after taking a knock in training, he was really in my thoughts for starting. Duffy has picked up a knock also. The three of them are struggling for the match.”

“Wighton is knee and Duffy is thigh, McGowan felt his hamstring but has had a bug also so I don’t think that has helped him. I would say Wighton and Duffy are definitely out and McGowan is touch and go.”

Hamilton always provide a tough opposition and the manager is hoping to take last week’s second half performance against Rangers in the second home league match of the campaign, “Any time you face Hamilton they are always difficult games. They are a team that you need to match, full of energy. They have good players and they have added a little bit of experience to their group.”

“We are at home and we want to do well. I felt the second half last Saturday was good and hopefully we can continue that second half performance for the full 90 minutes.”
