Hamilton boss Taylor praises Wolves loanee Matheson

Wolves teenager Luke Matheson is spending the season on loan in Scotland with Hamilton Academical.

18-year-old Matheson has made two appearances so far, and both have come in victories.

His debut came as a half-time substitute in a 3-2 Challenge Cup win over Hearts Reserves’.

And Matheson made his full bow when he started at right-back in a 2-1 away win over Queen of the South before the international break.

Speaking earlier this week, Accies boss Stuart Taylor offered up his first impressions of Matheson.

He’s clearly been impressed by what he’s seen so far and said: “Luke has settled in really well.

“He’s come in from Wolves and did very well. He is very robust and very athletic.

“So along with the other lads, it’s about learning together and getting stronger and better.

“We’re continually looking to progress and improve the football club. There’s a lot of things going on behind the scenes.”

Matheson will hope to keep his starting place on the right of defence when Hamilton take on Arbroath tomorrow.

The Scottish second tier might not be the most glamorous level of football around, but getting regular gametime is the most important thing at this stage and proving himself in a tough and physical league will do Matheson no harm at all.
