Accies full-back Kieran MacDonald is adamant that Stuart Taylor’s men have all the tools to push up the table during the remainder of this season.
He said: “We can push ourselves up this table, one million percent. I know what this league is like, having played in it before and I know what it takes for us to do well.
“Every team in this league is there for the taking on our day, whether they are at the top or the bottom, so for us, it’s just about building on our good play, by adding a clinical edge to our game. If we do that then we can continue our decent run and progress in the right direction.”
The 28-year-old is hoping to build on his playing time from last time out against Ayr United – where he made his first appearance in just over a month.
He said: “For me, it’s about trying to stay injury-free now, so I can have a positive impact on the team. I want to build some good momentum and hopefully, I can play every week.”
The last time the Lanarkshire men visited Starks Park, MacDonald found himself on the scoresheet twice in an entertaining 4-4 draw, and the Accies defender hopes that vein of form is something he can replicate again this time around this weekend in Fife.
He said: “As a full-back, my job is to create chances, by putting balls in the box for Chucky or big Moyo to get on the end of – but I like to get forward to be in and around the opposition box as well, so hopefully I can get on the score sheet whenever possible too.
“We know what we are up against playing Raith Rovers. They are a good football side as we are too, so it will make for a good game and hopefully we can come away with the three points.”
