“It was two points dropped on Saturday and it ruined our weekend. We are lucky that we have a game coming up so quickly so that we can turn that around.

“We are back at home and need to get back to winning ways. We are up for the challenge.

“We take every game one game at time and we look to win every game. All games are important for us.

“We have been on good form and have had a lot of wins. We are still disappointed at some of the results. We have a strong squad, and a lot of people are coming back from injury. It is an exciting time.

“It is always healthy to have competition for places and it adds new dimensions to the squad. It is exciting and it will make us stronger.

“I think me, and Sam can play up front together. His goal scoring record speaks for itself. He is more of a target man and I like to run the channels more and I think we can do really well together.

“We have a good squad and when we are at it, we can give anyone a game.

“Some games I have been quite isolated, but some games have been enjoyable and have had a lot of support which I have enjoyed. Sometimes I have to occupy the centre halves and do whatever is best for the team.

“When I have played up top in the past it has always been with another striker. I would do all the dirty work and they would be in the box scoring goals. It is good to have options.

“We don’t want the gap between us and the top two to get too big, that is why it was disappointing to drop points on Saturday and we look to get back to winning ways against Hamilton Accies.

“We take one game at a time and we will cross the bridge with Celtic when it comes. Our full focus is on tomorrow night.

“I am really enjoying it up here. I have to do my best while I am here and see what is said in January. That is a few months away, I will see what happens. There are great people to work with up here and I would be happy to extend my stay if it was an option. I just focus on my football and take it one game at a time.”
