Goal star hailed by cap­tain

Hamilton Advertiser - - SPORT -

Hamil­ton club cap­tain Dougie Im­rie says James Keat­ings can be a win­ner – just like David Tem­ple­ton or Ali Craw­ford.

Im­rie has faith in the striker be­ing the man who can haul Ac­cies up the ta­ble, hav­ing set up two and scored one in a 3-1 win at St Mir­ren on Satur­day.

Mid­fielder Im­rie ben­e­fited from that, send­ing a header loop­ing over Danny Rogers for the opener, and he said:“i think if we can keep Keatsy fit he’s go­ing to be our match-win­ner go­ing for­ward.

“He’s sim­i­lar to Temps and wee Ali, he pops up with two as­sists and a won­der-goal to fin­ish the game off.

“St Mir­ren get­ting the goal at the end of the first half meant they went in with a bit of con­fi­dence. They were go­ing to come out for the sec­ond half fir­ing on all cylin­ders, and it was im­por­tant we got the third goal to kill it off and we did.

“After they went down to 10 men I thought we saw the game out com­fort­ably.”

Im­rie added:“it was mas­sive that we won the game and you saw the per­for­mance and at­ti­tude of every­one in do­ing it.

“I know we’ve been on a bit of a bad run at the mo­ment, but we’re al­ways in there fight­ing, we al­ways give our best.

“I know the re­sults haven’t been com­ing, but we will pick up wins with the com­mit­ment and at­ti­tude of the play­ers we’ve got here.

“Every­one from start to fin­ish gave ev­ery­thing for the club.”
