Accies end Hearts' winning start

CARLTON Morris continued his positive start to life at Hamilton Academical, helping Martin Canning’s side to a dramatic 3-2 victory over Hearts on Saturday.

The striker was substituted in the final minute of the game as Accies ended the Edinburgh club's 100 per cent league record.

A third consecutive win for Hamilton moved them to within six points of leaders Celtic with a game in hand, with Morris having scored twice in three starts so far.

Another member of City’s FA Youth Cup winning squad of 2013 has also wasted little time to make an impact away from Carrow Road, with Josh Murphy impressing for MK Dons.

The winger struck an extra-time debut winner in the Dons’ Capital One Cup second round victory over Cardiff City on Tuesday, helping his side set up a meeting with Barclays Premier League side Southampton.

Great win and great debut tonight! Nice to score the winner but the lads were unreal today! Now onto Saturday! Fans were great also 😁⚪️⚫️🔴

Murphy then appeared as a second half substitute during the 2-0 home defeat to Birmingham City four days later, with Karl Robinson’s side in 11th place after five games.

Goalkeeper Remi Matthews was also involved in the Capital One Cup during midweek, completing 120 minutes against Sky Bet Championship side Middlesbrough.

The Brewers were eventually knocked out of the competition by Christian Stuani’s extra-time winner, with Matthews dropping to the bench for Saturday’s 1-0 Sky Bet League One win at Shrewsbury Town.

Finally, Michael Turner was an unused substitute at the weekend as Sheffield Wednesday were beaten 3-1 by Middlesbrough.
