Three main things in this game...
1. Superb goal from Lawless
2. Superb save by Accies keeper from Lithgow’s header
3. That ref should be sacked - he was totally inept & was my only concern that they might equalise from one of his hopelessly wrong decisions.
I thought we were the better side by far in the first half but were second best in the second half - although Accies never really threatened our goal. I thought they bullied us in the second half, largely because the ref let them away with everything that he was penalising us for.
Kelly had very little to do
Gallagher, Halkett, Lithgow... dealt with most things fairly comfortably
Lamie put in good shift on the left
Pittman did what Pittman does, terrific story from juniors to Top tier & looks like he’s enjoying it
Jacobs generally good & great to see him getting game time at this level
Byrne was quieter than normal, probably because of the hammer throwers in Accies midfield
Lawless played well, scored a great goal & went close a couple of times
Menga wasn’t as effective as he was against Hibs but still a handful for their defence
Robinson worked his butt off & managed to win far more in the air than he should have given the disparity in height with their defence
Lawson didn’t do much when he came on but what he did do was okay
Hardie got to stretch his legs, good to see him back, needs game time to get up to speed
Burns didn’t have much time to make an impact but helped to close out the win
Overall I thought we deserved the points.
