Reid aims to end Caley record

Manager Billy Reid is confident Hamilton can be the team to finally end Inverness' incredible unbeaten run away from home when both teams meet at New Douglas Park on Saturday.
The Highlanders have not lost a league game on the road in 12 months, while Accies have picked up just one point at home so far this season and sit bottom of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League. But Reid has backed his players to upset the odds and claim a much-needed win in front of their own fans - if Accies can hit top form on the day.
"Records are there to be broken," he said. "We are the home side and we are really disappointed in just picking up one point at home. That tells you where our problems lie at the moment. But, if we play to our potential we will win the game, that I guarantee."
Reid continued: "We want to make sure we give no presents away because we have been giving too many away in recent weeks. We have already gone to Inverness and won so there is no reason why we can't win again.
"We had them watched against Aberdeen, who were a bit unfortunate on the night not to take something from the game.
"But that seems to be the way things are going for them as well at the moment."
Accies came out on top against Inverness back in August when former Caley Thistle player Dougie Imrie grabbed the only goal of the game.
Reid added: "Their record away from home is obviously far superior than their home form.
"But, in terms of personnel, there is not a lot between the two teams.
"Jonny Hayes is a big, big player for them. He is a player I admire and he is a talented lad. If we can keep him quiet, then we can win the game."
