David Moyo reckons people need to start acknowledging Hamilton for the Premiership side of six seasons.
The Accies are currently in a positive moment having recorded back-to-back wins over Rangers and Kilmarnock in the league.
Impressively, Brian Rice’s side have managed to keep three clean sheets in a row, and the improvement at the back is something that could really boost the club’s survival hopes as the season nears its end.
Hamilton are back down to 11th following St Mirren’s victory over Hearts last night, but confidence should be flowing in the Accies dressing room following recent results.
The goal, ultimately, is for Hamilton to preserve their Premiership status in order to begin a seventh season in the top-flight.
Once-capped Zimbabwe international Moyo – scorer of the winner against Rangers last week – delivered a light-hearted remark about the perception the club are usually favourites to go down.
He joked: “I think people need to put a bit of respect on us! They’ve been here six years now, clearly we’re doing something right. Give us the benefit of the doubt sometimes!”
On the club’s recent form, he added: “It’s been a good week for us. picking up six points in the last two games – hopefully, we can keep that going.
“If we don’t [keep the run going], it’ll be a waste of the good work we’ve done. We just have to kick on. I feel good, it’s been a long time coming for me and I’m happy I’ve got my opportunity and I’m taking it. Hopefully, I can help the team go in the right direction.”
