Grant Gillespie hopes the impact he made in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Cowdenbeath will earn him a starting slot against Raith Rovers this weekend.
But if not the midfielder is happy to come off the bench and try to change the game.
Gillespie climbed off the bench in the 52nd minute of the New Douglas Park clash with Accies trailing 1-0, and within 14 minutes had set up goals for Jonathan Page and Stevie May to provide a 2-1 win.
Gillespie said: “I’m delighted with the three points and, from a personal point of view, I came on and had an impact on the game.
“The gaffer asks you to try and help the team as much as you can, and luckily I managed to set up the first goal, which got us back into the game.
“When I play right-back I know I’m quite good going forward, and can take players on, so I knew if I got into good positions hopefully somebody would be on the end of it, and big Pagey was there.
“Hopefully I’ll get a start against Raith. I can only do so much and then the rest of it is down to the gaffer – if he feels that I’m another impact player off the bench then so be it.”
