Accies manager happy to see Mickael-Antoine Curier back

Mickael-Antoine Curier
Curier has been missing for Accies for six week with a hamstring problem

Hamilton manager Billy Reid believes having Mickael-Antoine Curier fit will help pull his side away from the threat of Scottish Premier League relegation.

The club's top scorer, who has been missing over the past six weeks made a return to action as a sub last week in the 1-1 draw with Aberdeen.

"The big thing for us is Mikael coming in," said Reid. "As soon as he came on, we scored within two minutes."

"His presence on the park is a big thing for us at the moment."

Hamilton host St Mirren in Saturday's SPL match at New Douglas Park, with Reid's side aiming to continue their unbeaten run against the Buddies this season - and Reid is keen to make sure Curier remains a permanent fixture in his side.

Mickael leads the line well, and scores goals. His return will also help Dougie Imrie, because he can now go and play in a wider area

"The formation we play, he is ideal for it," said Reid.

"He leads the line well, and scores goals. His return will also help Dougie Imrie, because he can now go and play in a wider area.

Accies have almost a full squad to choose from for the match, and James Wesolowski, who has been hampered recently by hamstring trouble, trained this week so could make an appearance.
