Hamilton striker Jason Scotland smashes in an equaliser at Livingston to salvage a point

Jason Scotland still hopes he can win his first major winners’ medal in Scottish football, and says the pressure is now on leaders Dundee.

All the Trinidad and Tobago striker has to show for his efforts so far is a runners-up medal in the 2005 Scottish Cup final, and Scotland hopes that will change next month.

He said: “I didn’t win any major thing in Scotland before, so it would mean a whole lot to win something, to have a winners’ medal under my belt.

“I have a losing medal from a Scottish Cup final and that’s not good enough, so it would mean a whole lot and I’m still hoping we can achieve that.

“We need to win all three games. The pressure is on Dundee, but we need to take each game as it comes, win them, and see where it takes us.

“We’re just focusing on the Alloa game.

“It’s tough, and we know Dundee will be looking over their shoulder, but we just have to take care of ourselves and see where that takes us.”

Scotland took his goals tally to six for the season with a late leveller at Livi to keep Accies in the title hunt, but the 35-year-old wasn’t celebrating.

He said: “I’m pleased to have scored six goals, but disappointed with the result and the way we performed in the second half. We had to pick it up a bit because we were a man short, but we’re just disappointed that we didn’t do enough.

“We hadn’t been playing well but when we went down to 10 men we played better. The gaffer will look at that and think we could have done better from the start.”
