Cammy MacPherson was the man of the moment at the weekend and couldn’t have picked a better moment to pull a St Mirren cracker out the bag.

His strike away to Hamilton handed Jim Goodwin’s side a crucial 1-0 win at the home of Accies, their first win on the road this term. It lifts Jim Goodwin’s men into ninth.

In what was a stuffy game, MacPherson’s moment of magic sealed all three points. After watching a free kick of his come crashing off the bar, his drive from the edge of the box from a loose ball hurtled into the bottom corner at breakneck speed.

He’ll struggle to hit a ball so sweetly in such a big game again. MacPherson reckons it’s the best goal of his career and that this win is massive for his side.

WAYNE ROONEY TO EVERTON IS A JOKE.

“It’s the best goal I’ve scored,” he said. “I scored one for Stranraer that was probably better but that means more. To score in a game like that and get the three points is unbelievable.

“It’s very important and we end up sticking it out. We knew how tough a game it would be and that we’d climb a couple of places with a win, so I’m delighted.

“Hopefully we’ll carry it forward into a few games. We know if we play like that we’re a match for anyone. We had a couple of good chances but were denied by the goalkeeper.

“We’ve not created enough but hopefully that can change now. I’ve been wanting a start for a while now so to take like that means a lot. Playing like that we’re a good team.”
