Hamilton Away - Early KO 12:30

We need a team that'll withstand the pressure Hamilton will put us under, no-one questions their battling abilities for good reason, we'll need to stay tough. With that in mind I'd like us to line up like this.

--------------Fox
-----Fraser Souttar Fontaine
------------Draper
Naismith Lindsay O'Brien Gardyne
----------Schalk McKay

Subs: Foden, Davies, Melbourne, Kait, Ngog, Curran (Routis or Tansey whoever is the fittest)

I'd still rather keep Melbourne in and instead have Gardyne on the bench to make an impact after 65 /70minutes. Similarly I would use N'Gog after Schalk or, more likely, Mckay has worked an hour or more.

I'm not too sure about Melbourne, sure he has talent/potential but I think he disappears in games, where Fontaine has saved him, and Saturday for me is too big a game to risk starting him.

I'd maybe even put Gardyne on the bench, start Fraser on the left and put Davies into the middle of the back three.

We have a very tall team, Hamilton are missing players so our aerial advantage should really come into play, Davies can be a real threat in the opposition box.

Anything with three centre halves means Midge out wide will be using him as cover for full back- that's something I never want to see again.

Have you seen the last few matches, we've played with three at the back and midge through the middle of the midfield, he's been poor there too.

Time for Midge to take a rest. Suggest O'brien as straight replacement. Rest of team as per start vs Motherwell.

Midge has been putting in a good shift in that position and has helped out the team a lot in defensive positions.
Going forward it maybe hasn't clicked as we'd expect but that will come IMO. I'd have him in the team based on work rate and attitude alone. He's county through and through. 11 players with his attitude wouldn't be fighting relegation.

Keep Melbourne in,the way he didn't bottle tackle against Kipre,and wiped him out showed me he has the desire and toughness to go against the Hamilton thugs.
Motherwell was a big game for us,and he did alright for me,clean sheet.
Agree about Gardyne going to bench , but in fairness he was coming more into the game v Hibs when he got hooked.
I was worried about Davies been missing last week,but no worries there ,Souter and Fontaine did well.
Doubt Routis will be fit,so will Davies come in?

This season it just hasn't worked for him. I'm struggling to justify his inclusion in the side at the moment.

That tackle was epic! Wee Max got up and ran away whilst big Kipre rolled around like a beached seal.

To me that looks a bit too defensive for a must win game. I know it's probably a back 3 with Fraser and Melbourne pushing up more as wing backs but do we have enough in midfield creatively to give Schalk and Mckay decent service? Tansey's not exactly had a lot of game time this year. Draper's being used in front of the back four and that leaves Lindsay who puts in a good shift but isn't the mot creative midfielder.

Anyway, I don't care so long as we win !!!!!

The quality is just not there. It's embarrassingly bad against a team that can't buy a win! Think the Caley derby is the only thing worth looking forward to next year. We've made two hasty management decisions this season and neither have worked.

Not one single bit of skill displayed, lets just boot the ball in the air, absoutly dire.

Two mistakes by Marcus Fraser cost us this game.

Dire. Woeful. Completely lacking of any plan B or craft.
Don't get why Tansey got the nod to start. Opposition keeper only had one notable save to make. One more than last week I suppose.
Only positive is I don't pay for a Sky subscription if that's the sort of p*sh you get on it.
