Hamilton striker David Mayo has warned the club’s relegation rivals that the Premiership side is playing without fear as they aim to climb away from the wrong end of the table.

Brian Rice’s side face St Mirren this evening on the back of an emphatic 4-1 Lanarkshire derby win over Motherwell last weekend.

No longer bottom of the table

That win took Hamilton ahead of bottom of the table Ross County on goal difference. Now Mayo has stated that his team are full of confidence ahead of the game against St Mirren.

“If we win back to back games that puts us in a strong position, so that’s what our focus is, to keep trying to beat teams and turn people over” he said.


“Take the game to them”

“We have absolutely no fear, we want to be on the front foot, take the game to them and put them under pressure, just like we’ve done to previous teams we’ve played” Moyo continued.

The Hamilton forward scored his team’s fourth goal in the recent win over Motherwell. He hopes that leads to more regular starts for the team, but admits that it is up to the manager.

“I want to play all the time, every minute of every game, but it’s important for the gaffer to do what he thinks is best for the team. As a player, I have to respect whatever his decisions are, and that’s just how I’ve taken it” Moyo concluded.

If Moyo gets on the pitch against St Mirren, he will be confident of adding to his goal tally this season after his finish against Motherwell.
