Celtic striker Daryl Murphy wants to capitalise on the 'massive incentive' of moving to the top of the Scottish Premier League.
Victory for the Hoops against Hamilton on Saturday would see Neil Lennon's side overtake Old Firm rivals Rangers at the summit on goal difference.
Celtic have the opportunity because Gers' match against St Mirren at Ibrox has been postponed due to the freezing weather conditions, meaning they do not have the chance to bounce back from a surprise 1-1 draw against Inverness last weekend.
And having avoided falling five points behind Rangers, Murphy now wants Celtic to take advantage by defeating Hamilton at New Douglas Park.
"We are thankful that the result (at Inverness) went our way, it wouldn't have been nice to have been that far behind," the Irishman said.
"The Hamilton game is a massive incentive for us.
"Any team going into a game knowing that if you win you will go top - well, you can't ask for any more than that.
"However, we just have to win our games and not worry about other teams."
