Marshall and McGhee were both excellent again today. Marshall does the dirty stuff well and gets stuck in but he's also intelligent going forward, knowing when to drive on and when to slow the play down and bring a team mate into the game. His ability to be available for the ball gave McPake a lot of room to work in first half as well.
McGhee is a good football playing CB. Broke forward with intent a couple of times but he reads the game well at the back and does a lot of work covering for Forster's more impetuous style of play.
McPake was our most potent threat and his first 45 minutes was the best from anyone on the park, although their No11 was decent too. Robertson makes the team tick. He needs to learn that the ball across the face of his own box is risky and shouldn't be played as often as he likes to but other than that it's hard to find fault. We look a million times better with him playing.
Good showing from Johnson again in the lone striker role and while folk may not necessarily like it it's easy to see why he's getting the nod over Kane and Nelson. I thought was lost impetus again when Kane came on and Nelson for Gowser was a strange one because that was a much better showing from Gowser again.
Cammy had an OK game. No mistakes, nothing outstanding, whereas Forster continues to look far too easily flustered and wants to get too involved sometimes leaving way too much space behind him when he fails to win the ball. Another reasonably anonymous performance from Byrne, while McDaid in the build up is excellent but seriously let down by his final ball. Todd, who I've bigged up, contributed little when he came on but I'd still like to see his passing ability through the middle, rather than out wide where he seems to look a little stranded at times.
Leaving Hamilton. One great save in the first half when the ball nearly looped in as it got caught in the wind and I can't fault him for the goal - the defence had a couple of opportunities to clear and left him exposed. Claimed or punched everything else and made another couple of good saves and his penalty stop kept the points at Dens. He's my MOTM. (McDonald was equally as good for them and his distribution is absolutely first rate whether from a dead ball or from hand and was a real weapon for them at times).
