u20s beat St Mirren 4-0

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Our u20s continued their fine recent form with a 4-0 win over St Mirren at NDP on Tuesday evening, which sees us maintain 4th place, a point ahead of Motherwell who have a game in hand.

Amazingly, eight of our 18 players were u17s.

This was a comfortable victory and we were always in control after the early jousts. Jaison McGrath (left) opened the scoring in the 36th minute with a nice finish after a good passing move, and young Danny Armstrong made it 2-0 two minutes before the break when he got on the end of a Jack Harrison pass. Skipper Jon Routledge was replaced by Craigy Johnston at half time, and Paul George's nice low drive in the 58th minute put us 3-0 up. In the 74th minute Armstrong turned provider when he set up Jaison McGrath to score and make it 4-0.

Accies: Currie, Watson, McMann, Harrison, Want, Routledge (Johnston 45), Armstrong, George (Quinn 75), McGrath (Brownlie 75), Lyon, Docherty.
Unused subs; Smith, Reilly, J Quitongo, Coyle.

We defeated Alloa 2-1 at NDP this afternoon on an incredible afternoon that saw us go back top of the Championship after Dundee lost 1-0 to Morton at Cappielow with ex Accie Dougie Imrie scoring. Alloa scored a late goal here to ensure a nervy and tense finish, but a few comfortable saves by Kevin Cuthbert after a spell of Wasps pressure in the closing five minutes saw us hold on for a deserved victory.

Alex Neil made three changes to last week's team that drew at Livingston. Ziggy Gordon and Stephen Hendrie were suspended, while Mickael Antoine Curier went to the bench. The Manager started himself for the first time since end October, and Lee Kilday and Grant Gillespie came in to take the full back positions. 16 year old Danny Armstrong was on the bench for the first time.

We went ahead in the 3rd minute when Man of the Match Jason Scotland ran on to a great midfield pass from the Manager to slot the pal past Bain in the visitors goal. Darian MacKinnon limped off with a groin injury in the 27th minute to be replaced by Andy Ryan (left), and it was Ryan who put us 2-0 up with a goal 30 seconds into the second half. Crawford and Scotland combined to set the young striker up for his second goal of the season. Just as Morton went ahead at Cappielow, so Alloa pulled a goal back here through Ross Caldwell in the 83rd minute to give us a very tense and exciting finish as Alloa desperately sought an equaliser as they also seek to avoid the play offs at the other end. 2-1 it remained.

Full report to follow

Accies: Cuthbert, Canning, Gillespie, Neil (Docherty 66), Crawford, Longridge, MacKinnon (Ryan 27), Andreu, Garcia Tena, Kilday, Scotland (Antoine Curier 75).
