Reid: Hamilton striker Hasselbaink a nightmare for defenders

Hamilton boss Billy Reid expects new striker Nigel Hasselbaink to terrorise more defenders after his SPL debut in his side's 1-0 win at Inverness. The Dutchman - who is the nephew of former Chelsea forward Jimmy Floyd - impressed in Accies' first win in the league this season after signing from PSV Eindhoven earlier this week.

"I thought Nigel Hasselbaink all day looked a major, major threat," Reid said.

"He's 19 years old and I threw him in today and what a shift he gave us.

"He's a fantastic young talent and did fantastic for me in pre-season games and I think he could have a big say in weeks to come.

"If he gets the ball on the deck he's going to cause problems and I think the defenders were terrified of his pace at times because they knew he could beat them."
