HAMILTON hitman Jason Scotland has warned his Accies team-mates they must make the most of home advantage against Falkirk today as they bid to continue their recent hot streak.

The New Douglas Park men have taken 10 points from their last possible 12 to go level with SPFL Championship leaders Dundee, although they have played a game more.

But with the third-placed Bairns just two points adrift of Alex Neil's men, Scotland says Accies must be more clinical in the final third if they are to continue to build their Championship challenge.

The former Trinidad and Tobago international said: "Obviously we were disappointed not to take all three points against Queen of the South last week.

"But with Falkirk coming to our place today we have had no time to let our heads go down.

"We have worked hard since the defeat by Dundee to turn things around and three wins and a draw from our last four matches is good, solid form.

"So, although there was frustration that we did not make it four consecutive wins against Queens, a point on the road is not the end of the world.

"But the gaffer has said all along that the title race would go down to the final nine games and now we start that sequence today.

"So it is vital we make the most of home advantage and continue to build momentum."

Accies' gaffer Neil used his old connections at Barnsley to lure the former £2million pound Wigan striker to Lanarkshire in January. Now Scotland is hungry to repay the Hamilton boss for his faith in him.

The 35-year-old said: "It takes a while to bed in at a new club, but I am getting there.

"The main thing for us is that we take more of the chances we create today."

Elsewhere, rock-bottom Morton travel to Raith Rovers desperate to record their first win in six games to cut the 13-point gap between themselves and second-bottom Cowdenbeath.
