Hamilton boss: Absences give others the chance to become ‘heroes’

Fri 05 March 2021 | 13:39

Brian Rice accepts the shortfall of two key strikers, essentially giving others a chance to be Hamilton stars against Aberdeen on Saturday.

Marios Ogkmpoe

and

Bruce Anderson

had framed an empowering due in the offense line, yet Ogkmpoe will miss a second game with a hamstring injury, and Anderson isn't accessible because of the provisions of his loan concurrence with his parent club. 

Be that as it may, Rice, whose side are in the lowest spot of the

Scottish Premiership

table due to goal difference behind Kilmarnock with a game close by, transformed the negative into a positive. 

The 57-year-old coach said:

"It will be a loss considering we have lost Bruce with the agreement with Aberdeen and have lost Marios as well.

"So the striking partnership that looked quite promising, none of the two of them will be available.

"But, like I keep saying, these things happen and we just have to get on with it, so it is a chance for two others.

"The two that come in tomorrow maybe become two heroes and they stay in the team.

"If you get in the team, you get the chance. It is up to you to stay in it and that is the way I put it to them.

"If you look at the goals scored in the league we are quite high up the table, so I am confident we have goals in the team. But Aberdeen is always very difficult.

"You never get a comfortable 90 minutes so it is going to be very tough, but every game is very tough. But we are really looking forward to the game."

Hamilton visit Pittodrie with one loss in five matches, with three stalemates inside that run, as well as a 1-1 outcome against St Johnstone for Wednesday night.

The Accies manager said:

"I have said it all along, the boys haven't lacked confidence. We have lacked numbers at times but we haven't lacked confidence.

"I think you can see with the way they are playing and going about their business that they believe in each other and everything we are doing.

"We know what we need to do and it is now just a case of trying to do that."
