Striker Andy Winter is hoping to continue his recent goalscoring form this weekend as we welcome Arbroath to New Douglas Park.
Speaking ahead of today’s game, he said: “I’m always confident in front of goal. I always try to get as many goals as I can and help the team out as much as possible.
“I just have to keep playing the way I’ve been playing, and I’ll hopefully be able to continue my good form in front of goal.”
It was Andy’s third goal in as many matches on Friday’s night’s draw at Ayr United. After having time to reflect on the game, he said:
“It was unfortunate to concede so late on but the backing from the fans was massive. They were great on Friday night.”
Looking forward to Saturday’s game, he hopes to get the same backing from the fans and give them something to cheer about:
“We owe it to the fans to go out there and give it our all.
“It would be great to get the three points for them and give them something to cheer about.”
However, Winter admits Accies will have to be at their very best if they are to come away with a positive result.
He said: “Arbroath are a good side. They have a lot of experience in their squad and are a tricky side to play against. However, we have shown that we can match them this season and we want to make home advantage count and grab the victory.”
Having been at the club almost a decade, Winter believes the squad benefits from a close knit bond routed in those who progressed through the academy together.
He said: “I have been at the club for ten years now. I have played with the likes of Lewis (Smith) and Jamie (Hamilton) for nearly ten years and it’s a great feeling to finally play alongside them in the first team.”
