MARTIN CANNING hopes Hamilton can take the positives from their performance against Rangers into their crucial relegation clashes in the coming weeks.

Accies went down 5-3 to the Gers on Sunday as they extended their winless run to five matches.

Ross Jenkins and Kenny van der Weg made their debuts at the SuperSeal Stadium and Canning hopes there is more to come from his side.

He said: “I thought Jenkins done well in the middle of the park, and I thought big Kenny did OK. He will be a good addition for us as well.

“There are positives there and now we have a run of games coming up that are big games for us.

“Since we came back from the back, we have played three of the top five. Now we have got a run of games against teams that are round about us and we have to make sure we go and make the most of them.”
