Last time at New Douglas Park
Scottish First Division

This match followed on a Scottish Cup tie the previous Saturday
between the teams at East End Park, a match Hamilton won 2-0.

Ten minutes from the interval Falkingham was taken out from behind by Gillespie, right in front of referee Bobby Madden but no whistle. There were ironic cheers from the 200 travelling fans when the ref next gave the Pars a decision 30 yards out. Wallace whipped over the free kick and KIRK met it perfectly to head past Cuthbert who could only claw the fresh air. Andy`s first goal since against Dumbarton in September - 1-0.

In 63 minutes Dunfermline took their chance from a corner kick on the left. Chris KANE scored his debut goal for Dunfermline ghosting in to flash Wallace`s delivery into the Accies net. 2-0

Hamilton struck back three minutes later when Louis Longridge got deep into the Pars box on the right. He beat Gallacher with the cross and GILLESPIE was on hand to despatch the ball into the net. 2-1. The home side kept pressing.
