Thought we started sluggish again and Accies looked the better team, but we gradually came into the game and finished the half on top, prob should've scored too but took the wrong decision when we had ample time to line up a better option than blasting over the bar.
2nd half we were def the better team and had 2 or 3 great chances, Menga was through on goal, much the same as Accies were with the winner, but he pulled it wide. Thought we had placed it right in the top corner too but it somehow missed. That's not to say we were world beaters, it was a tough game to watch, too many lumps up the pitch, it was when we got it down and passed it about we got at them, needing to do that more. The wind made it difficult too, for both sides, which didn't help make the game any more pleasing on the eye.
Lawson looked pretty good in bits, he's got nice quick feet and looks a good player. Sibbald wasn't at his best though, and his set pieces weren't up to much. We can't rely on set pieces all the time though, we really need something better up front just now, that's no goals in 2 games and tbh we're playing for draws the now and hoping to nick a goal, even against teams in the bottom end of the table. I don't mind seeing us doing that against Sevco, Celtic, Hearts and Hibs, but ffs, Accies and St Johnstone? We're better than that. We really need someone like Hardie up front who can stick away the odd chance in 3, i'd rather give Hamilton a run than keep playing midfielders up front. Menga and Miller are good for partnering the likes of Hardie, but they are not players who will score lots of goals themselves. We've done great without a striker so far but it's shown up as a problem in our last 2 games.
Oh forgot to mention this, when we took Lamie off it crossed my mind we might get caught out at the back, maybe Holt thought we could win the game and went for it but it did leave us open to what Accies did to us, they sucker punched us good style with just running straight up the pitch and scoring.
Big 2 games coming up now, strangely though i'm optimistic about getting points from them, we're doing better against teams that will come at us and dominate play. Just need another option for when we're playing teams that do to us what we do to Hibs and Sevco.
