Storm Ciara has been a talking point in Scottish football this week- and David Moyo is hoping Hamilton can blow Aberdeen further off course after a sticky run.

Accies go into tonight’s match with the Dons looking to create some unwanted history for their away side. Should Derek McInnes’ men fail to hit the net in South Lanarkshire, it’ll be the longest run of games without a goal in their history, having failed to score in their last five.

Accies are aware of this but Moyo says it’s all about focusing on Hamilton and their own goals. They need the points too, finding themselves 11th in the Premiership currently.

A win would move them level on points with St Mirren in tenth and cut Hearts four points adrift at the bottom ahead of a Jambos trip to Celtic. Moyo knows the storm will bring its own test but Accies must still seek three points.

“The conditions are carnage and it looks really difficult to play in,” said Moyo. “We’ll need to see how it is. Windy conditions are the worst because it takes the ball everywhere. It’s horrible to play in. I think it’s more luck.

“They’ve not scored in five games so hopefully we can keep that run going. We just need to focus on us and what we’re good at doing.

“I think when you get on the pitch and you see their fans are turning on them, we try and keep the momentum on our side.

“But we don’t really speak about it in the changing room. You can sense it out on the pitch. But we just want to get the three points.”
