17 Oct Hamilton 1-1 Dundee: Ten-man Accies earn point
By Laura Brannan at New Douglas Park
Ten-man Hamilton Accies capped off a dramatic second-half by grabbing a well deserved late equaliser in an exciting 1-1 draw with Dundee.
Dougie Imrie pulled the game level four minutes from the death, cancelling out Kevin Holt’s deflected 35-yard opener.
Before that Darian MacKinnon saw red for violent conduct on Thomas Konrad just before the hour mark, but it didn’t hold the home side back.
Wave after wave of attack saw them finally find the back of the net on 86 minutes after Carlton Morris and Gramoz Kurtaj both had goals disallowed.
Accies boss Martin Canning said; “Football can be frustrating at times but over the piece I think we deserved at least a point.
“To be honest, I thought in the second-half it wasn’t going to come, one was ruled offside, another for a foul, so I was delighted when Dougie popped up with the goal.”
Dundee manager Paul Hartley was left disappointed at throwing away two points.
“We’ve got to see the game out,” he said. “They went down to 10-men and probably played better but we’ve got to see it out, defend better and be better organised.
“I’m disappointed not getting the three points but it’s a point and it’s a difficult away fixture coming here.”
Meanwhile Canning said he didn’t think Ali Crawford’s groin injury, which saw him substituted in the first-half, was anything serious.
Hartley confirmed Julen Etxabeguren will have his ankle knock assessed on Monday after the defender was stretchered off.
