ST MIRREN midfielder Cammy MacPherson says the Paisley side need to take each game as it comes.

MacPherson scored his first goal for the Saints in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Aberdeen.

And the teenager was delighted to get off the mark for St Mirren, having previously netted on loan for Stranraer last season.

He said: "It felt brilliant. Did you not see my celebration. It’s good because, I don’t have to think about it. What was I? Six or seven yards out. So just hit it as hard as you can.

"You just keep playing the game as if it’s no different from any other game. There will be (a time where that changes), I haven’t been involved in that before, but I’m sure there will be.”

MacPherson was handed a new deal by Oran Kearney earlier this season until 2020.

And the 19-year-old wants to show the Northern Irishman he was right to extend his current contract.

He continued: "I want to repay him for giving me a new contact, so I’ll just keep working hard and we’ll see what happens.

"If you get a chance, you’ve got to try and take it, and try and stay in the team."
