Hamilton Away - Match Preview

MATCH PREVIEW – HAMILTON ACADEMICAL

It’s the last chance saloon for us on Saturday in our battle to avoid the play –offs next week.
Not only do we have to beat the division’s inform side at New Douglas Park (kick off 3 p.m.) but we also need already relegated Airdrie to take something from their game with Dunfermline at East End Park.
A glimmer of hope for us is the last time the Diamonds avoided defeat was against the Pars at the Excelsior Stadium in March while their last win came at East End Park in January!
Games between Cowden and Accies this season have been even this season with each side winning at home while the last match at Central Park ended in a draw.
Back in August a goal from Kyle Miller gave us a 1-0 win when Accies visited Central Park.
The return game in January saw Kane Hemmings give us the lead at the interval but two goals in a four minute period from Jonathan Page and Stevie May kept the points in Lanarkshire despite the home side being reduced to ten men after Alex Neil was sent off for a second booking.
Colin Cameron was also red carded that afternoon when he picked up a second yellow card from the technical area after being substituted!
The last meeting at Central Park saw a 1-1 draw with Craig Moore cancelling out Stevie May’s opener.
COWDEN FORM
Two successive defeats from Dunfermline and Dumbarton have left our Irn Bru First Division status hanging by a thread as we currently sit in ninth place a point behind rivals Dunfermline.
